Meet Myla Dalbesio, she’s many things: beautiful, tall, elegant, regal, but plus-size?—I think not!
Elle Magazine thought they were doing the plus-size community justice when they featured a new “plus-size” model Myla Dalbesio. The 27-year-old model recently landed her most prestigious gig in Calvin Klien underwear collection. Although Elle clearly agrees with the outlandish criteria for plus-size models, they still managed to receive negative backlash from their interview with the young model.
Although Dalbesio isn’t quite the usual model-physic, she certainly is not plus-size—this is a normal-size woman. And if this is what the fashion industry considers to be plussed, then we have a long way to go.
