In the past, supermodel Coco Rocha has been very vocal about the term “plus-size” and its definition and use in the fashion world. Now that Myla Dalbesio’s Calvin Klein campaign has reignited the debate about what plus-size means, the model is back to reiterate her opinion on the matter.
At an Autograph Collection Hotels event on Thursday, Huffington Post asked her about her take on the plus-size issue. She responded:
“I didn’t really hear about the Calvin Klein thing … but I have spoken out on the whole subject of plus-size models — I don’t even like a title: petite, short, high fashion, runway. It should all just be in one genre, it’s just a model,” she told HuffPost. “Even when they say ‘real women.’ I hate that too. We’re all real. When someone tells me that I’m not real, I say to them, ‘Well, what about me isn’t real?’ I have not changed my figure. This is who I am. My mom [has this body], this is genetics. So for anyone to be called plus-size, petite or ‘not real,’ it just frustrates me…”
It frustrates me too, Coco.
