Your Turn: Glamour’s "Astonishing" "Average Size" Woman

I’m interested in your take on what started out as a 3 x 3 inch photo on page 94 and has turned into enormous buzz.

The image, accompanying the article “What Everyone But You Sees About Your Body” in the latest Glamour features model Lizzi Miller, who her mother writes: “started her modeling career [with the goal] to redefine what was normal and beautiful.”

Daryl Lang’s write-up at PDN mostly summarizes the outpouring of praise from the magazine’s readership, but concludes with a link to a cautious post at Jezebel questioning Glamour’s true commitment to and inherent “conflict-of-interest” when it comes to “body acceptance.”
