Blogger Nadia Aboulhosn Talks Confidence & Size

cq5dam.web.1920.1280

On what she loves most about her body:

“I can’t say my ankles because it sounds really weird, but I really love my ankles! (laughs) And I love my legs. I would say my legs. And my eyebrows, but they’re not really a body part!”

On whether she has always been confident and happy with her body:

“Yes I have, since I was a kid. I think it has a lot to do with parenting. And also, I am part Lebanese, and my body isn’t out of the norm of those beauty standards. I have never really felt like an outcast. It wasn’t until I got into this career that I felt I was different. No one really pointed it out until my blog became popular.”

On her insecurities:

“Yeah, I’ll pick at myself for certain things that I wouldn’t before. Like, ‘I want a bigger upper lip’ – but then I see someone with lip injections and I am like, wait a second, I am so cute already… (laughs) I don’t want to get caught up in that whirlwind.”

And an older quote coming from Nadia:

I’m technically not plus-size but I’m on the cusp. It’s something people use in the industry to label everyone else because they’re not used to somebody not being a size zero or two. “[People say] I’m fat, ugly, conceited. I come off like I’m conceited and cocky because I’m bigger, and [they] don’t think I should be. In every interview I do, I’m asked, ‘how are you so confident? You wouldn’t ask Rihanna that. You wouldn’t ask Beyoncé. People think, ‘why is she confident and I’m not happy with myself?’ Just because I’m bigger and society doesn’t accept people like me. Well, I still think I’m attractive. That’s not a conceited thing – that’s just, you know, you should think you’re pretty. You should be your number one fan.

… says size 12 blogger / model Nadia Aboulhosn (27).

Stephanie Seymour: Gigi Hadid & Kendall Are the ‘Bitches of the Moment’

FFN_vcv_51293273

Supermodel of the 90s Stephanie Seymour (47) has a few words to say about the new generation of ‘supermodels’ – Gigi and Kendall:

“They are completely different than we were. Supermodels are sort of the thing of the past. They deserve their own title. [Kendall and Gigi] are beautiful girls, and I support all of them, but they need their own title.”

And what should their title be? “Bitches of the moment!” Seymour said with a laugh. “That would be a good title for them.”

“I’m so glad social media didn’t exist during our time. I’m a private person, and sharing everything feels odd to me,” she said. “And because there weren’t cameras around us all the time, we got away with so much more and had so much more fun. We didn’t have people watching us all the time, and we weren’t putting ourselves out there in a way that was turning the media against us or for us in any way. We still had our privacy, and there was more of an illusion behind the girls. You lose your illusion when you give much of yourself away, and that’s what I don’t like about it. I’m so glad it didn’t exist back then. I can’t imagine what it’s like for the girls today.”

… says Stephanie in an interview with Vanity Fair.

Do you guys agree?
