As I wrote those words I felt utterly disgusted. Coco Rocha is a size 4 and theÂ IndustryÂ Sample size is a size 0Â henceÂ their reasoning for her being to big to model on many runways. Coco is by no means big…she is actually quite small but what Fashions wants is super skinny/emaciated looking.
â€œIâ€™ve been told to lose weight when I was really skinny,â€ said Ms. Rocha.
â€œYou know what, Iâ€™ve stopped caring,â€ Ms. Rocha said. â€œIf I want a hamburger, Iâ€™m going to have one. No 21-year-old should be worrying about whether she fits a sample size.â€
â€œGirls are told theyâ€™re not skinny enough, or they hear, â€˜Sheâ€™s old, sheâ€™s boring, weâ€™ve had her, sheâ€™s not tiny anymore,â€™ â€ Ms. Rocha said. â€œA lot of people donâ€™t take into account the vulnerability of these young girls.â€ And the latest crop of models is not made up of â€œadults or even sort-of adults,â€ she insisted. â€œThey are children. Point closed.â€
I think Coco is beautiful! Case Closed!
