Curves, which are (were?) allegedly back, made a pitiful showing in New York Fashion Week’s many, many shows. Crystal Renn walked Z Spoke, and … yeah. Across the sea at London Fashion Week, breasts and hips are faring better, and perhaps at least provide hope that the plus-size model trend is not just a fading fad. Giles Deacon, who last season cast Victoria’s Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Izabel Goulart, and Ana Beatriz Barros, presented his spring 2011 collection yesterday on ladies including the pregnant model-slash-TV presenter Abby Clancy and fellow bodacious model-slash-TV presenter Kelly Brook. Other notables on his spring 2011 runway included 71-year-old legend Veruschka, who closed; Ambrosio and Beatriz Barros again; Agyness Deyn, who is neither pregnant nor known for her curves, but is a slash; and Amber Le Bon, who is neither pregnant, curvy, nor a slash.
