V Magazine Gives Plus-Size a Spin

V Magazine has done something pretty interesting in their upcoming issue, hitting stands Jan. 14th. Terry Richardson's shot a spread entitled "One Size Fits All," which features two models in a series of the same outfits, side by side. Here's the twist: one is plus-size model Crystal Renn and the other is emerging catwalker Jacquelyn Jablonski.

To give you an idea of Jablonski's shape, she walked the S/S '10 Prada and Balenciaga runways, so ... yeah, pretty slender (her measurements are 32/24/34).  Renn, on the other hand, is quite a bit curvier, but by no means big by American standards (her details: 36/31/41) The girls both sport an eclectic mix of bright Proenza Schouler prints, towering Versace heels, and Dolce & Gabbana bodysuits. Fashion's long had trouble dealing with curvier girls, but here we think both girls actually look fantastic -- which, we should say, is also a big selling point for any of the clothing in the spread. After all, wouldn't you rather purchase clothing that looks good on various shapes?

V63 hits newsstands on January 14.
