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.”

One more Coco after the jump!

Maybe it does sound not too tolerant, but…I think we have all this situation with too skinny models cuz there are the way too many gays in fashion industry. Show me just only one straight man who will ask an already slim woman to diet out her curves?! Hillarious!

I’m not sure about the whole “gay” angle. There’s not a lot of hard data about how many homosexuals are in the industry. I have a lot of gay male friends and they don’t begrudge “curvy” women at all. I think it’s just an aesthetic of extremes. The thinner it is the more attention it gets. The whole coat hanger theory doesn’t work for me but the “gay” agenda doesn’t either. It’s probably a mixture of things. I know many gay males in that industry are hypersensitive about their weight as well. It would make sense they would project it… Read more »

I agree with you there, it’s the extremes that catch the attention. I don’t think there’s a big gay lobby group in the fashion world that want women to starve themselves. Besides that, there is the competition in the modelling world, there’s always a thinner girl out there. It’s like a snowball effect; new model is very thin-> she gets a lot of work -> other model loses her work because of the thinner model -> she tries to lose weight-> gets more work -> influences other models—-> being extremely thin as a model is seen as the norm and… Read more »

It’s not that gays necessarily want all women to be very slim, but gay men do find other men hot and attractive and the only way to make a girl look like a boy is to slim her down until she has no curves left. It sounds to me like that might have played a big role in why this extreme pin-thin model industry started, but of course that is not the only reason why models are so slim nowadays.

I don’t think it has anything to do with being gay. It has to do with a culture of excess. Its EASY to be fat, fashion always has and always will glorify the kind of beauty that is difficult to obtain. Before industrialization and during/shortly after WWII, that was curves. Now, curves abound, and they’re often over abundant. So thin is in. If (unlikely, but still…) society ever gets so health conscious or poor that thin bodies are more predominant, the fashion industry will push curves. Because then excess will look glamorous. The “gays like thin women” thing is ridiculous… Read more »

justme, you’re babbling. Stop throwing the healthy card, it’s not working. And no, it’s not easy to be fat. Most people are normal sized, not fat. And the 15 bmi that most models have is not an epitome of beauty, health, desirable whatever. Not for sane people anyway.

Sonya
Guest

Totally agreed with Uma. And yeah, models are essentially coathangers. I’ve read articles on the subject of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell becoming supermodels, and eventually taking away attention from the clothes they were paid to sell. Designers don’t want a model to stand out; they want to sell clothes. Furthermore, the less ‘mass’ (not sure if the term is correct) a model has, the less she overpowers the clothes. It has nothing to do with compassion; it is a business.

When I read stuff like this I can’t believe I was trying to force my sister to go into modelling. She’s 5″9.5 and a UK size 8 (slim one). Then even she (who is very savvy about the fashion industry) said that she doubted she would get far because models are normally even thinner than her. She was going to lose weight but she was going to do it via Billy Blanks and cutting out the biscuits she scoff’s before dinner, not starving herself. I think if a girl wants to model she must really really love the glamour that… Read more »

People are replying to you in this way because you sound a) aggressive, and b) like a snarky teenager. For all I know, you are a teenager. The all caps lettering and constant use of the word “fat” does not ingratiate you to others; it is obvious you have no interest in dialogue. If you worded your opinions in a more gracious and mature manner, perhaps people would not react to you in such a way.

Don’t you understand that many skinny people are ones that are starving themselves? People are going to die this way, and I think that’s what makes your statement so ignorant. You don’t care. You just know what you think looks good and you’re willing to call people that don’t burn of everything they eat in a flash or just aren’t starving themselves fat.

I’m sorry, you’re speaking “the truth”? There’s one truth now? Did I miss the memo? While it’s lovely and all that you’re a size 0 and 1–and thanks ever so much for gracing us with the information during your commentary–in my OPINION, a size 12 is not too big to put on a magazine. Some might say that a size 0, often unattainable for many models already at that size which is outrageous for their personal bodies, is “not good” to put on a magazine since it’s unhealthy and dangerous for them. Heck, it can be downright ugly to many… Read more »

Agreed. Isabella Fontana started modeling when she was only 13.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabeli_Fontana

And I believe Kate Moss started at 14.

They take them in young so that they can get them to learn the techniques and rules of the industry. Also, the younger, the longer they can work. A modeling agency rarely hires anyone above 21 because their career ends in the late 20s! Sick world huh?

She speaks the truth though. I remember on the Janice Dickenson modeling agency this one girl was a size 4 and Janice said she was “too big”.

It’s strictly 0-2 and it’s sad.

I’m a 2/4. %’9. 125 pounds. I’ve done some modeling and I’ve been told “i’m too big”. Yet honestly, I watch every ounce I eat.

You have to be willing and determined to be a model or you genes are just on your side!

Try Modelmayhem.com, you need to be careful but there are many people who get use it and get paid work out of it. Be aware you might not get paid at first and if you are near a major city it might not be that useful. Women of all shapes, sizes and heights use the site. A word of warning though, don’t get deluded and think you are going to get signed by agency. That’s a long shot. Do it if you enjoy it but don’t put your hopes into it.

As Coco points out they hire very young 12-14 year olds from poor countries and they model to send money back home and it’s probably the most money they’ve ever seen (if they don’t get paid in clothes). So they’re not exactly in a position to say screw this I’m gonna eat a hamburger. That’s the point she’s making – those kind of girls are all kinds of vulnerable. Not to mention that the reason they’re so thin sometimes is because growing up they didn’t get a proper diet. I think they should rule for larger sample sizes in the… Read more »

Too true, people are blinded by the “glamour” of the industry. it’s laughabe. Most of the models I saw were between the ages of 14 and 17 and were smoking cigarettes, eating next to nothing, puffing on inhalers and even (in some cases) taking horse tranquilizers. Yea, that one was hot for awhile. There’s also an ADHD drug used to suppress appetite among these types. When most people think “model” they think Victorias Secret and that ilk. The actual industry is pretty far from that.

BUt even the ‘curvy’ ones i.e. VS (just saying curvy because many people say they are, i dont think that…in 90’s they WERE curvy, but not anymore…) anyway back to topic.

I never watched Sex and the City, I don’t know about that. I will say in my experience that a lot of the girls I knew in life who looked up to models did so because they wanted to be models.

People who “deify” certain industries/people will never be able to accept the truth about that industry or person.

I think she can’t get jobs because she is not that pretty anymore, and I’m not talking about weight. There is some model that lose appeal fast, they do not have the skill to keep relevant.
I doubt it’s her weight that is keeping her to find job, Lara Stone is the same size and is everywhere (even @vogue cover).

It’s so much that she is not that pretty anymore, it’s just that she was everywhere for the past two years and people are getting tired of her. Otherwise, I completely agree with what you are saying. Lara Stone is quite curvy for a model and yet, everyone still loves her.

Uma

There are so many models that are plain ugly that your argument does not stand a chance. She doesn’t get jobs because the industry is filled with 12-15 yrs old. You just cannot compete with those bodies when you’re over 20 something.

I do feel sympathy for them, but then again I don’t. That is their job to be thin and fit into the sample sizes. They are getting paid a ton of money to be thin and fit into the sample sizes, and if a girl can’t get the job done, there is always a younger 15 year old that hasn’t hit puberty yet that will fit… Read more »

That wasn’t a comparison, she was saying that in the modeling world, sizes 0-2 can get work, and sizes 12+ can get work, but sizes 4-10 are pretty much SOL.

Size 12 isn’t necessarily fat for a tall woman, and most plus size models are over 5’8″. On a short woman, a size 12 is fat(or getting close to being fat, depending on frame/build).

And no, you are not “SPEAKING THE TRUTH.”, you are giving an opinion, and the last time I checked opinion does not equal truth.

You said your “opinion” was the “truth”. Go look up those words in the dictionary. Opinions cannot be truths by definition. You can say “it’s my honest opinion”. If that’s what you are trying to get across. but really, you are just trolling. You’ve said the same thing at least 10 times. We get it. This train isn’t stopping because you want it to.

You didn’t say “I think skinny females look the best.

There’s a different between being a tw– with no tact with an opinion and a mature adult with an opinion.

Being slim is being healthy. The human body was not made to carry and excess of weight. Slim people live much longer… I think that fact speaks for itself.

She is so beautiful. Both she and Doutzen have been criticized for their weights, when they are two STUNNING models that I would kill to trade places with. I think they look amazing in clothing and they have phenomenal features. The fashion industry is starting to sicken me with their emaciated preteens. I want to see clothing on REAL womens’ bodies.

If she’s really not getting any work because of her size, then that’s really sad. The girl is far from being too big, hell, she’s not even normal. I’d still put her on the slim side. But then again, I’m always skeptical with these model stories. There could be a lot of other reasons why she’s not getting work that she doesn’t want to admit to. For starters, she was part of the group of models with “unique” faces and that’s going out of style. Or there might be something about her attitude/modeling that has become infamous. Regardless, love the… Read more »

She walked in 2 shows so far I think, DvF and Zac Posen, which isn’t at all numerous seeing as some models will walk 8+ shows. However, I was under the impression that Coco had reached a level of success where it wasn’t necessary for her to walk that many shows. Afterall, I read somewhere that she said Fashion Weeks can be exhausting and what with jetting all over the world walking runways in different fashion capitals, she hardly sleeps for 2 months. Now that she’s an established model, I don’t think she wants nor needs to put herself through… Read more »

Personally I think shes trying to get attention. To me she looks smaller than a 4 but I can’t really tell under that bulky dress. If you want a job – work out, eat salads, drink lemon water (but dont starve yourself to death) but def loose the pounds to be a size 2. If you want to get into fashion and be a model you have to be cut out for it. It would go the same way if you were a body builder – you wouldn’t last two minutes it you are toothpick or fat – you have… Read more »

Coco is a supermodel, so it’s really been there done that for her. I’m sure she is hardworking and respects her profession. However, I think it’s unfair to just say she can get the job if she tries hard enough. I find the expectations that the fashion industry puts on their models are very high and unrealistic. For many girls, “trying hard enough” entails eating very little in order to get the job; exercise may help you tone up and shed a few pounds but it won’t morph you into a stick. It’s true that clothes look better on slimmer… Read more »

yea, i dont even know that clothes do look better on slimmer people! i mean ‘slim’ yes…but size 4 is slim…do clothes look better on SKINNIER people? Not necessarily! I think someone like Halle Berry, jess alba, jess biel, beyonce, kim k, can look totally hot in clothes. maybe even too hot so it would take away from the clothes if they look too sexy!
also Nicole, i think there are still many people out there that just dont want it to change

sola, it’s a sad sad thing… 🙁 i think some people forget that these girls are living, breathing human beings whose health should be treated with some level of respect. recent efforts to show otherwise have struck me as weak and ineffective – forcing girls to eat turkey sandwiches backstage during shows when they’re trying to fit into their tiny sample sizes seems a little silly.

agreed! i would love to know the stats of models that die due to not eating enough. There have been a few i can think of…and then there are those girls that go unreported because they arent models, but regular everyday, not even recognised as ‘anorexic’ girls that have their ideas of healthy screwed up because of the modeling industry.

Well Jessica alba is really skinny and always has been – her bmi is really low. I agree with the Halle Berry comment (shes hawt but she is really thin you know), Jessica beil works out constantly and she’s slim too – Beyonce looks good sometimes but I’ve seen some weird photos of her lately. As for Kim Kardasian – EWWW. All I gotta say is that I throw up in my mouth a little every time I see her. She is sooooo lumpy. Not attractive at all. I dont enjoy seeing her in anything!

i think it’s a damn shame that the fact she’s a size 4 she’s called too big or fat?? please that is thin and nowhere near being big. it’s like you have to be too small or too big in order to model and can’t accept women who are in the middle. i’m a size 7 and 5’2 and some people think i’m smaller than that when i’m not. i can barely fit a size 3/5 so is that suppose to be fat?? no. glad i’m not a model because if i had to deal with that i’ll go crazy.… Read more »

It’s probably because all of their sample sizes are 0-2 and they can’t be bothered to alter them for her. She’s certainly not big any way you look at her. I can’t see her body well in the photo because of the dress, but her limbs look fairly slim to me. I think that the modelling world should stop reeling in young girls that are naturally a size 4 and above and then telling them they can become a famous model if they diet and exercise to at least a size 2 (isn’t that what happened to Crystal Renn before… Read more »

ok, heres the deal: I agree with one of the above points stating that the ‘model look’ has not always been a thin look. E.g cindy etc. It happened to be the case that in the 70’s/80’s there were quite a few gay designers who wanted their models to be ultra thin and non-curvy ..sorta to resemble a man’s body for their clothes. And so the thinner models gained more popularity with the designers and later the public. I’m 5’6 and weigh around 130.

I can guess you are a desperate middle aged woman with language difficulties. You must have a little boy body from starvation and probably secretly wish you had curves. Everybody gets that you like skinny chicks, but it is obvious you hate yourself for whatever reason. Get therapy, learn to love yourself, and you’ll see how dumb it is to hate certain body types so much. BTW I am very thin and athletic and I think curvier women are beautiful but also love my body:)

a woman should like whatever she wants. as long as she’s healthy. just because you don’t have the womanly shape that most people lust over doesn’t mean you’re less of a woman. so i disagree.

Fluffykins
Guest
Fluffykins

A healthy weigthed woman, no matter her size, shape, weight, what have you, will still look “womanly”, even if she is a ruler. A woman that is underweight will stop looking womanly. They won’t necessarily look “boyish”, “masculine”, or what have you, but they won’t look like an adult woman, they become androgynous, or may even start reverting back to the way the body looks before puberty hits. No one is saying that a healthy weighted ruler isn’t womanly. However, they are saying that underweighted women lose the features that make them feminine.

I’ve said it once and i’ll say it again.. Everyone should be well aware that the modeling industry likes to have really, really skinny people. If you are not willing to be skinny then go find a different profession. And if you are very vulnerable to that sort of criticism then you shouldn’t even be putting yourself out there in the modeling industry. I’m not saying that the industry is right but still, come on.

Hang on a minute, I’d like to know her actual stats. Because in the fashion industsry it’s a well known fact that catwalk models have to be very specific measurement to fit the sample sizes. Say the garment is made to fit a 34-inch hip but the model has 36 inch hips they will be considered too ‘big’ even though it is only a measily couple of inches. Certainly doesn’t mean they are fat, just not suitable for catwalk modelling. All catwalk models are basically walking coat hangers, thought everyone knew that by now?

In response to the comments that state how a model has to understand the demands of the industry to get work, i would like to know how a 13 yr old is expected to know any of that?

how on earth can a girl so young even imagine such demands, or even her own growing body?

Looks more to me like a case of reaching them whilst theyre still vulnerable enough to be manipulated. I am actually surprised that it is still legal.
