Social media went into uproar recently when a size 10 model featured in a Calvin Klein campaign was labeled 'plus size' on Twitter.
Despite the fact that Calvin Klein never referred to model Myla Dalbesio this way, the 27-year-old told Elle US in a recent interview: "It's kind of confusing because I'm a bigger girl. I'm not the biggest girl on the market, but I'm definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating."
Now supermodel Coco Rocha is getting in on the conversation - but this time, it's in defense of women of all sizes.
"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," Rocha told the Huffington Post.
The model also said she was sick of hearing the term "real women", saying it was derogatory to those with naturally thinner builds.
"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," she added.
