The full story from Fox News:

Miss Nevada, Nia Sanchez, may have won the Miss USA pageant, but its Miss Indiana who is getting all of the attention on social media. Mekayla Diehl’s “normal” bikini body stood out from the rest of the super fit beauty queens during the swimsuit competition, sparking fans to lavish praise on the 25-year-old Hoosier for her curvy, healthy-looking physique.

“It’s quite overwhelming, in a positive way,” Diehl told Fox & Friends.

And it wasn’t something Diehl planned for in the run up to the big night.

“I wanted to just continue a healthy lifestyle and inspire others to go after their dreams,” she said. “I never imagined that it would be in a swimsuit.”

Supermodel Petra Nemcova also chimed in on Miss Indiana, telling the show: “I think its fantastic. Each person has a different body type. Some people are naturally skinny, some curvy. We have to celebrate all different shapes of the body. The main thing is to be healthy.”

Diehl agrees:

“I trained very hard for the body I have, but I didn’t go to extremes, and I’m proud of that,” she said.

 

During the 2014 Miss USA broadcast on Sunday (June 8), the beautiful brunette became quite a popular topic on Twitter. Here’s what some of the viewers tweeted:

“I really wanted Miss Indiana to make it to the top 10. She was the only girl up there who had a relatively normal body.”

“Miss Indiana shows you don’t have to be super skinny to be beautiful.”

“Finally a contestant that’s not a bag of bones.”

“The fact that Miss Indiana is not a complete twig makes me really happy!”

Lara Stone on Her Post-Pregnancy Body: “I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round”

Here’s the full story from Huffington post:

Lara Stone was turned away from a modelling job after revealing that she was pregnant. The Dutch model, who was less than three months pregnant and hadn’t even had her first scan, told the booker that she was expecting her first child before heading to the shoot. But when she arrived, she found that another model had replaced her. While Lara received no explanation as to why the change had been made, she assumes it was due to her size.

“I was really upset at the time,” Lara told The Evening Standard. “I hadn’t yet had my three-month scan and I felt really vulnerable about everything. I no longer had a job. That was it — I had to just stop everything that I knew; the way my life was.”

Since giving birth to her and David Walliam’s child, Alfred, in May 2013, she has adopted diets and the help of a personal trainer to get back in shape.

“Once the baby was out,” she says, “I was like, ‘What the hell is going on?’ My arms don’t fit into my sweaters. I couldn’t get my jeans over my knees. I couldn’t find a bra that fitted me. I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round.”

She is now back to work but admits that it is harder trying to fit into sample sizes.

“I’ve had a few meetings because when they hear pregnancy they freak out a bit,” she says. “So they need to see if I fit in their clothes.”

She is considering having another baby but isn’t yet convinced. “Everyone’s like, ‘it’s fun, they can entertain each other.’ But I think it would be 20 years of war, then they move out,” she says. “My sister and I, we get on great now but when we were little we fought all the time.” Added to which Walliams took time to adjust to pregnant Lara. “‘What do you mean you have a headache and you feel nauseous?’ he’d say. ‘You didn’t feel like that a week ago’.”

She, too, found the process of pregnancy hard to cope with. “I was in maternity jeans from 11 weeks,” she says. “Who needs buttons when you can have elastic?” She tugs at her jeans to demonstrate but laughs — she’s no longer wearing pregnancy ones but her regular skinnies.

Demi Lovato: “I was four years old and looking in the mirror and thinking I was fat”

On why she’s been so open about her eating disorder:

‘It’s important for me to be open about my health and things I’ve been through cause I’ve realized when I was younger, I didn’t have anybody in the public eye to look up to that I admired. I didn’t have anybody who was setting a good example about real stuff. Had I had someone in the public that I really admired come out and say “it’s ok that you’re not dealing with stuff well”… I want to be that person. I grew up in a time when socialites were taking over Hollywood – that it was cool to be super, super-skinny and partying…it was unachievable. There was no-one around to say “it’s ok”. I just want to be that for other people.

On her first body image issues:

When I was four years old and I remember looking in the mirror and thinking I was fat. I was constantly feeling guilty about my weight. I was overeating to compensate for not feeling worthy enough and then not knowing what to do.

… says Demi.

On body image and ‘being born curvy’:

‘I’ve spent so much time talking to women about, ‘Hey, I may be on TV and I may be photographed for magazines, but I don’t think I’m perfect. I don’t wake up in the morning and look in the mirror and go, “Hey, I’m amazing!’ That’s not how it is. I’m a woman and it’s a struggle for all of us. And it took me until this point in my life at 31 to say, “Hey, yeah I’m going to embrace my body and own it for me, not anyone else. And I’m curvy. I’m not some rail-thin, 6-foot-tall runway model who was just born that way. I was born like this. And that’s A-OK.”

… says 31 year-old Sophia.
