Dream Girl

February 13th, 2007 — 7:37am

Jennifer Hudson, one of the stars of the movie “Dreamgirls”, will be on the cover of Vogue next month. This is remarkable because Hudson wears a size 12.

In press interviews she has said, in essence, this is who I am, I love who I am, take it or leave it. Crowds seem to be taking it.

I say good for her! No, *great* for her. Size 12 isn’t an aberration — it’s the norm. (Actually, one size larger is the norm). I’m not sure Anna Wintour, editor of Vogue, is doing this for the rights of curvy women — she’s more interested in selling newsstand copies and creating buzz (she has succeeded). But notwithstanding, the value of seeing a luscious girl on the cover of Vogue remains commendable.

And makes me just a wee bit prouder of my curves.
