27 year-old model Myla Dalbesio has made history by being the first size 10 US model to score a Calvin Klein campaign. Many more details from Daily Mail:

‘It’s kind of confusing because I’m a bigger girl,’ Myla, who stands at 5ft 11in, told Elle. ‘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. I’m not skinny enough to be with the skinny girls and I’m not large enough to be with the large girls , and I haven’t been able to find my place,’ she explained. As such, ‘this [campaign] was such a great feeling.’

And yet some people have taken to Twitter in outrage that she could even be considered a ‘bigger’ girl. ‘Genuine WTF moment,’ one critic wrote in a tweet directed at Elle. ‘This woman is described as “plus-size” and “a bigger girl”. Aaaraagahagaagahahagahahag’. Another person said: ‘I wouldn’t consider her a plus size model. Her height and her muscular tone should not categorize as a “big girl.”‘ And a third commented angrily: ‘How is that plus size??’

Despite the outcry, which seems to be directed at Elle rather than Calvin Klein, Myla says landing the campaign has made her hopeful that size is becoming less of an issue in the fashion industry.

‘It’s not like [Calvin Klein] released this campaign and were like, ‘Whoa, look, there’s this plus-size girl in our campaign,” she explained. They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there’s no distinction. It’s not a separate section for plus-size girls.’

A statement released by the fashion house expresses the same sentiment. ‘The Perfectly Fit line was created to celebrate and cater to the needs of different women,’ a spokesperson told MailOnline. ‘And these images are intended to communicate that our new line is more inclusive and available in several silhouettes in an extensive range of sizes.’

She told Fashionista in 2012: ‘I tried for a long time to make myself [lose weight]. I tried throwing up after I ate and that’s awful. That is painful – I would never wish for anyone to do that ever.’ The model revealed that she would spend weeks eating nothing but calorie-free black olives and pickles and spending hours in the gym to try to slim down to a more typical model weight.

She then gave up modelling for two years to concentrate on her studies but it was Crystal Renn who paved the way for her return as a plus-size girl. Myla said: ‘They told me about plus modeling which was something I’d never heard of before. ‘But then they [scouts Jeff and Mary Clark] showed me, and this is when Crystal was really starting to pick up speed, so I walked into Ford and the first thing Gary [Dakin] said to me was, “You’re the next Crystal Renn,” and then they signed me.’

But Myla has also noted that she is encouraged to have landed the Calvin Klein campaign, despite not fitting into the super-skinny mold. ‘Look at the history of the brand, they launched Kate Moss, and this is the woman who started this whole trend of waif,’ she told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year. ‘To see a brand like that embracing a greater range of sizes… it’s really special.’

VS Model Sara Sampaios Body Image Message | hot models beauty body image

On being criticized for being too skinny:

I’m not gonna let any of you bully me just because I’m skinny! Every body is different, and every metabolism is different! I eat a lot, so next time u decide to tell me to eat a burger remember I probably eat more burgers than you, I’ve always been skinnier, and probably will always be, I workout, I’m healthy and I’m happy!

Her views on body image:

The amount of hate I see thrown at me and to other model friends that I know are naturally skinny it’s ridiculous! U don’t see us shaming other types of bodies so please don’t come and shame ours (sic)! Be happy with ur body and stop shaming others! Whether they are skinny, fat, fit, with big boobs, small boobs etc! Don’t share hate! Be happy.

… says 23 year-old Sara, who models for Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated.

“You have to sit there and really think about it: ‘Oh, I grew this little person’s fingernails in my tummy.’ After that, do you really give a s*** about arm flab? Because I don’t.”

From Cosmo:

On Body Image: “I wrote the song as a ‘Wow, I really wish I felt like this’ … now I go out there and I’m like, ‘It’s all about this bass.’ It has helped a lot.”

On Dieting and Working Out: “I ate pizza yesterday and I am eating Chinese food later today. It’s gonna be great. But so far people have actually told me I look like I’ve lost weight. I think it’s because I’ve been standing all day or dancing.”

Playing “Bass or Treble,” a game in which she decides if something is bass, meaning she’s all about it, or treble, meaning she’s not into it: “I like Ariana Grande’s nice thigh-gap; she’s got good legs.”

… says 20 year-old Meghan.

Lupita Nyong’o Brings the Quote of the Day | lupita nyongo 2 celebrity quotes beauty body image

On beauty and dark skin:

“European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world—the idea that darker skin is not beautiful, that light skin is the key to success and love. Africa is no exception. When I was in the second grade, one of my teachers said, ‘Where are you going to find a husband? How are you going to find someone darker than you?’ I was mortified. I remember seeing a commercial where a woman goes for an interview and doesn’t get the job. Then she puts a cream on her face to lighten her skin, and she gets the job! This is the message: that dark skin is unacceptable. I definitely wasn’t hearing this from my immediate family—my mother never said anything to that effect—but the voices from the television are usually much louder than the voices of your parents.”

… says Lupita.
