Riding on the end of my own wedding fever this morning I woke to a text from my equally gassed friend reading "Solange wedding pics". That alone broke the sleepy spell of waking up for work on a Monday morning as I jumped out of bed and Googled away. Oh Queen of Style Solange, I adore thee. What a truly unique visual for your wedding. So modern, and cool. The day featured two outfits, for the arrival and post party, a cream low cut jumpsuit and for the ceremony a custom made Kenzo gown both featuring some good cape action. Here are some of the official wedding portraits by Rog Walker featured on Vogue who got the first look in. Feast away.

While skimming my blog reader I saw that Vogue.com did something a little different recently. They included a story featuring "plus" and diverse size models. Readers of this space know that I talk about and try to include as much size diversity in posted content. One highly produced editorial I highlighted was a shoot for Vogue Italia featuring some really sexy plus size ladies; and an overview of how plus size models can be used in fashion stories but not having to be too sexual all the time. This simple bra finding write up on Vogue.com is simple and beautiful, and produced to a standard that is not dissimilar when fashion sites shoot traditional sized models. The models included are beautiful, sexy too but in a natural way; no matter what naysayers will say seeing these girls will make a whole lot of women and young girls out there feel beautiful about themselves. I used to complain too that with my athletic build, J-Lo butt & conservative boobie size that all Plus/Straight models always had to have larger breasts, and again, this Vogue.com features models that have smaller cup sizes too. You can read the article in the link above, but here are more of the photos from the shoot below. Hopefully we can see more and more of this visual diversity in the future.
