Excuse me? I have a question. I know the fashion industry is really over the top and elitist, but I had no idea that women who wore size 10’s were considered plus sized models!
Ok. That wasn’t really a question, but there’s a question in there somewhere. Similar to a WTF?
This week, Calvin Klein caused a buzz by introducing its first “plus size” model Myla Dalbesio, for their new lingerie campaign. Myla told Elle that she’s happy to be working with Calvin Klein but admits to being a little overwhelmed.
“I’m a bigger girl … I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating.”
Wow. If this woman is “plus size”, I am literally one burger away from being “plus size” myself.
I wonder, when we will reconsider what it means to be beautiful? Is this not a little disheartening?
