Weighing in on Size

What hits your eye as soon as you enter Manhattan’s Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle? For me, it’s the enormous bronze sculptures of Adam and Eve by famed South American artist, Fernando Botero.

As one gazes at the voluptuous form of Eve, in all her glory, does one think, “There’s a plus-size!” No! One simply accepts that this is – yet another – exciting and acceptable version of the female form. So why can’t we do this in real life?

A New Look at Age

Here’s some food for thought. As we enter 2015 let’s take a look at one of the stunning anomalies in America today: the lack of older models in advertising – especially for products and fashions that are purchased by this age group.
