TV Interview with Lizzie Miller
Interview Plus-size model bares it all
Matt Lauer talks to plus-size model Lizzi Miller about baring it all in a photo shoot for Glamour magazine.
Lizzi states it was a real picture — they just caught me in a moment when I was feeling comfortable and I was just being natural, and it was just the way it came out,” Miller told Lauer.“I’m healthy and I work out; I live a healthy lifestyle. This is how I look; I embrace it.”
And as it turned out, Miller’s embracing of her outer self has rocked the world of fashion models.Of Miller’s belly, Leive said, “You see it all the time when you look into the mirror, and I think that’s what women reacted to here. They’re actually seeing something that looks the way so many of us really do, but you don’t see represented that often.
”Glamour magazine published a photo of Lizzie, naked, in its September issue. And Lizzie, who appeared on NBC's "Today" show, says she can't believe that people actually like the photo because she expected to hear a lot of negative comments about her size 12 body.
Miller, at 20 already a seven-year veteran of the modeling world, rocked the magazine industry and the blogosphere when her photo appeared alongside an article on women’s body confidence in the September issue of Glamour magazine. The photo shows Miller in all her blond beauty, flashing a confident smile ― but also flashing some stomach pooch that hangs over her thong bikini.
Within a day, Glamour was inundated with comments, overwhelmingly positive, about the magazine’s showcasing a beautiful model unafraid to let it all hang out. Web sites such as Facebook, MSN and Jezebel.com were consumed with dialogue over Miller’s photo, and Newsweek.com dedicated Web space to a renewed debate over women’s body image.
The response was so large and effusive that Glamour editor Cindi Leive says Miller is proving to be a game changer when it comes to fashion magazines ― which often pay lip service to the idea of representing all women, but usually opt for the carrot-sticks-and-cigarettes, skin-and-bones types when it comes to cover girls.
“I think it absolutely will,” Leive told Matt Lauer on TODAY Monday. “You get a reaction like this and you can really see it. It’s also a sign of the times that women are really looking for a little bit more authenticity and a little bit less artifice in every part of their lives.
“Will it change our approach? I think it will.”
Ironically, the fashion mountain came out of what amounted to a molehill of a picture. Miller’s life-altering pose was not on the cover of Glamour; it was just a 3-inch-by-3-inch photo illustration buried on page 194.
And speaking with Lauer Monday, Miller says she initially wasn’t all that enthused about the picture showing her belly roll spilling over. “I’m just like every other girl who has insecurities,” she said. “The first thing I thought was, ‘OK, not the most flattering picture.’ ”
I think this picture is nice because it is the real deal and how women REALLY look! Women are excited about this because it expresses the way many look and it makes it more o.k.
How do men feel about this picture and the belly pouch?
I have my thoughts...........and yours? hmmm...
Blessings and to beautiful women,
