1. Plus-size model Crystal Renn posed next to a slimmer look-alike , Jacquelyn Jablonski in a fashion editorial entitled One Size Fits All for V Magazine,  dressed in the same clothes, in an effort to show fashion is universal. So far, such a  juxtaposition hasn’t been done in this way before, and we think it’s cool to see. For more democratic fashion, check out of our guides to the best UGGs and denim for your shape [Daily Mail].

2. Meanwhile, Europe is continuing the crusade to ban airbrushing in fashion photographs. If passed, will prevent the publishing of photographs that depict digitally-alterered models in ads that target girls under 16. For fashion for every size, un-airbrushed, check out our guides to the best shapewear, and boots for wide calves. [WWD]

3. Ian Webb (designer turned writer) has circled back to designing–and his collection includes anoraks for girlie gals, called the Glamorak. We love functional outerwear that’s super cute, too. For more, see our guides to rain boots and rain gear. [Vogue UK]

4. Bluefly got a $15M infusion–not from customers, but from venture capital firm Rho Ventures. See all of today’s great deals in our list of online sample sales happening this week, and get yourself a faux fur vest while you’re at it–it’s cold out there. [WWD]
