Plus-Size Model Treat: Georgina Burke for Australian retailer Torrid (which caters to women between U.S. sizes 12 and 28), looking hot in the brand’s swimsuits.

Some quotes from Georgina:

“When I was a teenager, I could’t fit my school uniform. Couldn’t buy what was on trend. I was shopping where your grandmother would shop. Nothing else was available then.”

“If women were in magazines in different race, age and size, then people would see it as realistic.” “It’s definitely changing, we only realize that’s ‘normal’. We are on the right track. It’s doesn’t has to be such an amazing thing to see a ‘plus size’ model in there, when it’s just normal.”

On stereotypes:

“People think plus-size models don’t exercise – we do! But it’s about health, not forcing my body to be something it’s not meant to be.”

On spending years trying to be a size 0:

“Even at my lightest, I just couldn’t get there. I genuinely really tried. I was counting calories, I was taking diet pills, I was dabbling in starvation. I thought you had to be skinny to be beautiful. And I thought I would never be beautiful at this size.”

On being considered plus-sized:

“People say, “How is she a plus-size model?” and I’m like, “Exactly, this is the point, how am I a plus-size model?” I don’t think anyone should be called plus-size. I think it’s derogatory to anyone – it’s a label. I’m a model; I don’t think I need ‘plus-size’ in front of it.”

… says Robyn.

Gabourey Sidibe Responds to Weight Criticism: ‘I mos def cried about it on that private jet’

The full story from Daily Mail:

Gabourey Sidibe had the perfect answer for the haters who slammed her red carpet look at the Golden Globes on Sunday. The Precious star, who was nominated for a Globe and an Oscar in 2010 for her breakthrough role, wore a cream coloured Grecian style gown by Daniel Musto and MIchael Costello with a sequin detail at the bodice and a slit up the front for Sunday’s awards show.

The plus-sized star, who has stated she’s comfortable with her size, was targeted by mean-spirited tweets about her appearance. ‘Bye!!! She looks like a condom,’ one person wrote on Twitter. ‘Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper,’ chimed in another.

On Monday addressed haters who were critical of her ‘plus-size appearance’, by pointing out that she has a much more glamorous life than they do.

‘To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK’ Gabourey tweeted.

The self-assured American Horror Story: Coven actress, known for her sarcastic sense of humor, was obviously joking about comments making her cry.

‘When I was 21 or 22 I just decided that life wasn’t worth living if I wasn’t happy with myself so I just took all the steps that I could to figure out how to love myself and become confident,’ she said in 2012 at the Women In Entertainment Symposium.

However, she revealed at that same 2012 event that sometimes she does get her feelings hurt.

‘I get shaken a lot, especially being in this business,’ she said at the time. ‘A few weeks ago I was on vacation and I went into a CVS and as I’m paying I see a picture of myself on the cover of a magazine and they’re guesstimating what my weight is?’

But she has learned to shake off criticism.

‘I have to keep going and living my life, so when things like that upset me I have to find things that build my confidence back up.’

According to a report on Showbiz Spy last summer, Gabourey’s Precious co-star Monique offered her young friend some weight loss advice. ‘Gabby loves Mo’Nique and thinks it’s great that she’s losing weight, but she’s just not interested in dieting at this point in her life,’ a source told the site. ‘She says she knows she has to do something, but she’ll do it in her own time and on her own terms.’

Tara Lynn: “It is hard to make clothes look great on big women”

On diversity in the industry:

I don’t know about bringing it to the industry, like the fashion industry. I mean it’s hard—and I’m just going to make this confession—it is hard to make clothes look great on big women. The more fat there is on a body, the more variation there is in the shape of that body. And so it makes perfect sense that people are using a standard, clothes-hanger skinny body for it. But in terms of the way we represent beauty: If we’re going to be selling perfume or makeup, I think it’s a great thing for [people] to see diversity in advertising and not have to feel like they need to fit a mold.

On the women who inspired her:

You know, this is such an old idea, but for me it was definitely Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. Obviously, they still have pretty idyllic bodies, but it still represented something different that I was trying to wrap my head around. They were outside of the norm, received criticism early on, and just faced it with…fierceness [laughs].Right? And there’s also Christina Hendricks, Scarlett Johansson, and Salma Hayek. Men aren’t [only] naming the skin-and-bones girls [as hot]—not that there’s anything wrong with super skinny girls, they’re beautiful too—but it’s funny to sort of see that shift.

… says Tara in Elle.

Tara definitely seems slimmer in this Elle spread… compared to this spread back in June!
