27 year-old model Myla Dalbesio has made history by being the first size 10 US model to score a Calvin Klein campaign. Many more details from Daily Mail:

‘It’s kind of confusing because I’m a bigger girl,’ Myla, who stands at 5ft 11in, told Elle. ‘I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating. I’m not skinny enough to be with the skinny girls and I’m not large enough to be with the large girls , and I haven’t been able to find my place,’ she explained. As such, ‘this [campaign] was such a great feeling.’

And yet some people have taken to Twitter in outrage that she could even be considered a ‘bigger’ girl. ‘Genuine WTF moment,’ one critic wrote in a tweet directed at Elle. ‘This woman is described as “plus-size” and “a bigger girl”. Aaaraagahagaagahahagahahag’. Another person said: ‘I wouldn’t consider her a plus size model. Her height and her muscular tone should not categorize as a “big girl.”‘ And a third commented angrily: ‘How is that plus size??’

Despite the outcry, which seems to be directed at Elle rather than Calvin Klein, Myla says landing the campaign has made her hopeful that size is becoming less of an issue in the fashion industry.

‘It’s not like [Calvin Klein] released this campaign and were like, ‘Whoa, look, there’s this plus-size girl in our campaign,” she explained. They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there’s no distinction. It’s not a separate section for plus-size girls.’

A statement released by the fashion house expresses the same sentiment. ‘The Perfectly Fit line was created to celebrate and cater to the needs of different women,’ a spokesperson told MailOnline. ‘And these images are intended to communicate that our new line is more inclusive and available in several silhouettes in an extensive range of sizes.’

She told Fashionista in 2012: ‘I tried for a long time to make myself [lose weight]. I tried throwing up after I ate and that’s awful. That is painful – I would never wish for anyone to do that ever.’ The model revealed that she would spend weeks eating nothing but calorie-free black olives and pickles and spending hours in the gym to try to slim down to a more typical model weight.

She then gave up modelling for two years to concentrate on her studies but it was Crystal Renn who paved the way for her return as a plus-size girl. Myla said: ‘They told me about plus modeling which was something I’d never heard of before. ‘But then they [scouts Jeff and Mary Clark] showed me, and this is when Crystal was really starting to pick up speed, so I walked into Ford and the first thing Gary [Dakin] said to me was, “You’re the next Crystal Renn,” and then they signed me.’

But Myla has also noted that she is encouraged to have landed the Calvin Klein campaign, despite not fitting into the super-skinny mold. ‘Look at the history of the brand, they launched Kate Moss, and this is the woman who started this whole trend of waif,’ she told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year. ‘To see a brand like that embracing a greater range of sizes… it’s really special.’

Ashley Graham, Tara Lynn, Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring and Inga Eiriksdottir appear in an unphotoshopped black and white spread in the current issue of Vogue US, where the beauties (that range from size 10 to size 16 US) wear nothing but sexy lingerie and minimal make-up.

Here are a few quotes from the models:

Ashley Graham:

“I have my own lingerie line for curvy women on Addition Elle. I’m also working on some great workout videos for YouTube . . . . Honey, I’m building the empire—it’s happening right now!”

Candice Huffine:

“You have an epiphany moment when you’re in the right bra. You’re like, ‘I can’t believe I left the house wearing all of these wrong ones before.’”

Marquita Pring:

“I probably had boobs at the age of eleven! I was young, and it was definitely the wrong type of bra—in fact I wore the wrong type of bra until I got into this industry and started learning about my body.”

How do you all like the spread?

Crystal Renn Talks about Her Weight Loss

Crystal Renn Talks about Her Weight Loss | hot models crystal renn celebrity quotes

Former plus-size, current not-really-plus-size model Crystal Renn (who is now a size 8-10) opened up about her recent (major) weight loss. We’ve got the details from Daily Mail:

She shot to fame as one of the world’s most famous plus-size models. But last night Crystal Renn admitted that she is now no bigger than a U.S. Size 8-10 (UK Size 12-14). The 24-year-old Chanel model, who was previously a UK Size 16, said that she finally felt ready to exercise for the first time since her teens, when she suffered from an eating disorder and became addicted to working out for up to eight hours a day. She revealed that a difficult break-up had contributed to her decision to embrace a more healthy lifestyle, and a combination of hiking and yoga had helped the weight drop off.

She told NY Magazine: ‘In the past, I avoided exercise because it brought back terrible feelings. I wasn’t ready. And I was scared that maybe I was going to be addicted again. That’s a fear that goes through your mind, whenever you’re getting over an addiction or a disease like anorexia, yeah, I absolutely was worried. But then I guess you could say my life changed in a really drastic way. For one, there was a split-up that I went through that was very difficult, and I thought, “You know what? I need to be in a good place. I need to find me again.”’

I went backpacking for three weeks and I came back and I had lost some weight. And basically I’ve been traveling ever since. This is just how my body is now… It’s been strange, actually, because it’s not something I’ve been trying to do,’ she admitted. She added that her current routine was far from rigorous: ‘I think I probably have a good relationship with the exercise that I do do,’ she said. ‘I’m taking care. I’m just in a really good place. I do hiking. I do yoga, but nothing crazy, just in my house. It brings me peace.’

What do you think of Crystal’s explanations?

Size: 14 AUS (10-12 US)

Extra info: Laura’s body was used to carve out the new mannequins for the lingerie sections at department stores Myer and David Jones in Australia.

A Quote from Laura: “I used to cut the labels out of my clothes because I was so embarrassed at being a size 14. There used to be such a stigma about having a size 14 body. Most of the clothing stopped at a size 14 … and it was always a small 14. “

We’ve seen Laura before – check out this post!
