I want to be her when I grow up

Upton just won the most votes on American Apparel's plus-size modeling contest for her series of satiric binge-eating photos, but the clothing label isn't giving her any prizes.

All Upton has done (by eating a turkey in a pool), is open up a conversation about how differently companies market to women depending on their body types.

I've not seen this before. I have seen Liv Tyler's sis. She is gorgeous and does plus size modeling... or did for a while.

Marketing is a strange animal.

I saw these somewhere already. Isn't she lovely and totally cool? I dig her.
