Another perfectly lean model says that she’s having trouble finding jobs, now that she is a size 4 (models sizes 0-2 are OK, and so are the ones over 12, just, for some inexplicable reason I will never understand, sizes 4-10 are not OK). Details from The New York times:
â€œI’m not in demand for the shows anymore,â€ said the model, who has worked for Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chanel, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Louis Vuitton, among many others.
â€œI’ve been told to lose weight when I was really skinny,â€ said Ms. Rocha, who recently added a new line item to her rÃ©sumÃ©: correspondent for Modelinia.com, the Web site for the model-obsessed.
â€œYou know what, I’ve stopped caring,â€ Ms. Rocha said. â€œIf I want a hamburger, I’m going to have one. No 21-year-old should be worrying about whether she fits a sample size.â€
â€œGirls are told they’re not skinny enough, or they hear, â€˜She’s old, she’s boring, we’ve had her, she’s not tiny anymore,’ â€ Ms. Rocha said. â€œA lot of people don’t take into account the vulnerability of these young girls.â€ And the latest crop of models is not made up of â€œadults or even sort-of adults,â€ she insisted. â€œThey are children. Point closed.â€
One more Coco after the jump!
