So, earlier today we shared our surprise at dropping by The Lake & Stars’ terrific presentation and discovering (gradually) that there were plus size girls mixed in with the size 2s… which took a while for us to realize, because the plus size models just looked like gorgeous women in gorgeous lingerie, practically indistinguishable from the rest.

Case in point? The woman pictured is Inga Eiriksdottir, an Icelandic beauty whose career never took off as a straight size model… until she joined Ford+ (their plus division, natch) and then she landed a bunch of editorials (like this one from Russian Vogue, photographed by Terry Tsiolis).

And she modeled for The Lake & Stars in her underwear.

And she looked amazing.

So. What do you think? Does this image say ‘big’? Is Inga’s look congruous with your understanding of ‘plus size’? How does this term mean anything at this point?
