Model Coco Rocha: “I’m a Size 4 and I’m Not Getting Hired”

FP_3159934_CFDA_Awards_SCP_061509 - Model Coco Rocha: "I'm a Size 4 and I'm Not Getting Hired"

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:

“I’m not in demand for the shows anymore,” said the model, who has worked for Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chanel, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Louis Vuitton, among many others.

“I’ve been told to lose weight when I was really skinny,” said Ms. Rocha, who recently added a new line item to her résumé: correspondent for Modelinia.com, the Web site for the model-obsessed.

“You know what, I’ve stopped caring,” Ms. Rocha said. “If I want a hamburger, I’m going to have one. No 21-year-old should be worrying about whether she fits a sample size.”

“Girls are told they’re not skinny enough, or they hear, ‘She’s old, she’s boring, we’ve had her, she’s not tiny anymore,’ ” Ms. Rocha said. “A lot of people don’t take into account the vulnerability of these young girls.” And the latest crop of models is not made up of “adults or even sort-of adults,” she insisted. “They are children. Point closed.”

Lara Stone – The Size 4 Model That Gets Called “Fat”

Lara-Stone-The-Size-4-Model-That-Gets-Called-Fat - Lara Stone - The Size 4 Model That Gets Called "Fat"

Doutzen Kroes and Heidi Klum are not the only perfectly proportioned models that have been called “fat” by the fashion industry. Dutch model Lara Stone joins this group. She’s 26 years old, 5’10”, a US size 4 and she’s heard the “fat comments” one too many times.

“People still tell me I’m fat, but when I look in the mirror, that’s not what I see. It’s depressing when the clothes don’t fit and you are always the odd one out…I was on a shoot last week and the stylist took out this tight corset dress and said, ‘Here, put it on,’ and I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?’ There was no way, so that was very rude of her.  It’s like, come on, she’s a woman; whether you’re buying jeans at the mall, or wearing couture, you know what it’s like for clothes not to fit.  It’s not an easy kind of rejection, because it’s very personal.  It’s you, you’re body.  You take it to heart.”

‘What they say is ‘curvy,’ but you know they mean fat.”

“I don’t want to be the fat one anymore,” she told Elle UK. “I have just started doing Pilates every morning, then going to the gym, running, and swimming. I make sure to relax in the sauna after exercising.”
