From The Style File

August 23, 1992

A fashion story without a photograph of any sort ("The Big Picture," by Idelle Davison, July 26)? Surely someone could have managed to find one photo of the large-size women's fashions described.

Although Karen Barbour's illustration may appeal to those who cannot bear to look at real, well-nourished human beings, the lack of any photograph is a slap in the face to women of all sizes. The obvious implication is that only stick figures are acceptable to the public gaze. The concept of a stylish and beautiful large woman is equated with the imaginary world of the Brothers Grimm. I protest.
