Model Myla Dalbezio is perplexed by the fact that at a size 10 she is considered a plus size model in the fashion industry. A Size 10 is hardly considered plus size, except by the fashion industry itself.
By using Dalbezio in its ad campaign, Calvin Klein’s “Perfectly Fit” underwear line was never classified as a plus-size product until they used the model in their ad campaign for the line. Note: by our standards it is NOT a plus size product.
Dalbesio went on the Today show to discuss the reactions to the campaign. She commented, “I think that Calvin Klein has done something that’s really groundbreaking, which is they released this campaign with what some would say is a normal-size model, a size 10. And size-10 girls, there’s not a lot of spots for us to fit in in the fashion industry.”
Calvin Klein used Dalbezio with models of varying shapes and sizes. Some people are critical of Calvin Klein’s idea of what a plus size is.
Calvin Klein’s response to the controversy is even more interesting. ” These images are intended to communicate that our new line is more inclusive and available in several silhouettes in an extensive range of sizes.” How about true plus size??
As I said…Interesting.
