March 8, was INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2015, and CURVY Journalist ADRIANA LIBINI offered a tribute to the Beauty, Power, and Strength of PLUS SIZE WOMEN around the world with The PLUS SIZE FASHION EDITORIAL: APHRODITE - INSPIRED By The GODDESS!!!
Yours Truly CCG has remained true to Greek Mythology with the story of the infamous seductress, BUTT; decided to flip the script on the provided visuals for the editorial, because; for those of us who are familiar with the true history of ANCIENT GREECE and ROME...
APHRODITE is the Greek Goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure, Fertility, and Procreation.
The origins of Aphrodite are as complex of the goddess herself, as there is actually more than one story of from whence she arrived in physical form.
This story begins with URANUS - the god of the sky, and, husband of GAIA.
Gaia bore Uranus many children, all of whom he despised.
CRONUS was the youngest child of Uranus and Gaia.
As ruler of the universe, Uranus imprisoned all of the children he had with Gaia.
Cronus grew envious, and had great loathing and disdain for his father's tyrannical power and authority. Cronus and his brothers hatched a to escape their imprisonment, and; plotted with their mother, Gaia, to kill Uranus.
Cronus was the only of his brothers to carry out the dirty deed.
Gaia created and gave Cronus a HARPE (large Stone Sickle), and when he met with Uranus, castrated his own father, and then threw his genitals into the sea.
The gods, goddesses, and all living beings witnessed the epic clash, but; nymphs noted that as the bleeding genitalia submerged, the testicles produced a white foam.
That white foam birthed Aphrodite.
Cronus later married his sister, RHEA, with whom he sired six children, the youngest being ZEUS - the rule of the Sky, Thunder, and the Olympians of MOUNT OLYMPUS.
Since emerging fully-formed from the sea, APHRODITE has continued to effortlessly exude great power over men and inspire envy of immeasurable proportions among women.
