Fashion designer embraces the plus-size world

Remember when fashion designer Julien Macdonald called plus sized models a "joke" and that "If you're a size 14 in a room full of size eights, you're in the wrong room?"
Well guess who's changed his tune after the June issue of Vogue Italia featured THREE models on it's cover?
Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine and Robyn Lawley
range from sizes 12-16 and although there are a few comments regarding the lack of clothing, it's my personal opinion that that's what makes it so empowering. Being plus-sized doesn't mean you should be ashamed of who you are! Take pride in the skin you're in BUT….please be classy =]
AS FOR Macdonald, he told Look Magazine that, "You can be real and still be sexy Bigger girls can compete against girls half their size."
He also stated that he would not dismiss any plus-size fashionista walking around in his clothes.
"There is a gap in the market, and if someone good wanted to represent my brand, I'd do it."
