This is Tara Lynn's second cover for ELLE and she appeared on Italian Vogue's June 2011 issue along with two other plus-size models above the headline "True Beauty." In a video produced by ELLE, Lynn says that fuller-figured girls shouldn't be apologetic about fashion and should wear what makes them feel good.

While the likes of designer Karl Lagerfeld may find women's curves unfashionable-he recently called singer Adele, "a little too fat," (he's since apologized)-Rubenesque beauties seem to be having a fashion moment. Italian Vogue has launched a website called Vogue Curvy which offers "curvy icons" and tips for dressing a rounder figure. Adele, herself, will be gracing the March 2012 cover of VOGUE.

Ironically, Adele recently told People Magazine, "I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that." Now it appears that at least some of those models want to look like Adele.

What do you think? Should more mainstream fashion magazines use curvier models? Let us know in the comments below.
