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).

Kendall Jenner to Stephanie Seymour: “Cyberbully!”

FFN_vcv_52091007

Responding to 90s supermodel Stephanie Seymour, who called Kendall and Gigi ‘bitches of the moment’:

“If you’re going to tell us not to be in ‘your moment,’ then don’t be in mine! But, if you choose to be a cyberbully, I’m going to stick up for myself. We aren’t trying to steal Stephanie Seymour’s thing, or trying to be her. I actually looked up to her. She has a daughter! I guarantee you that she didn’t imagine someone so publicly shaming her daughter when she made those comments about us being ‘b*tches of the moment.’ There are other supermodels who give me tips and build up my confidence. That’s the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life.”

On being hardworking:

No one is trying to steal Stephanie Seymour’s thing, or trying to be her. ‘If people want to call Gigi and I supermodels now, it doesn’t take anything away from supermodels of the past. Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we’re the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure.

… says Kendall.

On the worst thing a producer ever told her:

‘I hired you to look good in your underwear holding a gun.’

On being asked to share suggestions and ideas about her role:

‘That’s what I was doing, and this producer was so bothered by the fact that he had to disrupt his vacation to call me and tell me to stop being a difficult bitch. I thought, ‘Wow, it’s real. It really happens.”

… says Zoe.

Bella Thorne about Her Acne: “You go out and people think you’re dirty & disgusting”

FFN_vcv_52052121

On the negative stereotypes about acne:

“You go out and people think you’re dirty, that you’re, like, disgusting. That you must not take care of yourself because you’re uncleanly because you have acne. But really it’s something that everybody f*cking gets!”

On her struggle:

“Recently, my sister…we both struggle with trying to get acne taken care of. I was like, ‘Look at this pimple! I have a press day tomorrow, how did this just happen to me?’ and Dani was like, ‘That is a beautiful pimple, Bella. Your face is beautiful. You have beautiful skin. You love your face.’”

On her attitude towards haters:

“In the past three to four months, I’ve really changed. I’ve really become a very different person. I’m really happy I’ve grown into who I’m becoming now and who I will become. And I kinda just changed my whole opinion, which was ‘I don’t give a f*ck.’ I don’t care. You wanna trash me? I don’t care!”

… says Bella.

Her view on fashion:

“I don’t think it’s stupid; there’s no moral reasoning. It’s just not my thing. I just have this sense of entitlement that I should be able to feel comfortable at all times, like I could go to bed at any moment in what I’m wearing.”

… says Amy.

More from her Vogue feature:

She is a devoted practitioner of TM, avails herself to weekly acupuncture sessions, doesn’t touch caffeine, juices every morning, and enforces a prayer circle with her family and crew before each show.
