Whats Hot: Kate Upton Bites Back
Whats Hot: Kate Upton Bites Back
MONDAY, JULY 16, 2012

 

Kate Upton, despite her revealing day job, is becoming a role model for young women. A self-proclaimed “anti excess” blogger, SkinnyGossip.com, attacked the gorgeous Sports Illustrated model’s voluptuous look calling her “thick” and “vulgar” among other things. She even went as far to compare her to a cow and claimed that Kate has become “well-marbled” at the ripe age of 20. While everyone in the lime light will always have a few extra eyes of scrutiny watching her, Upton dealt with the situation head on. She commented back with this, "I'm not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life and I can't if I'm not eating and miserable."

This isn’t the first time she’s lashed back to a comment about her body. Kate has been going against the grain of the fashion industry since she started her career in modeling. She began as a self-proclaimed plus-size model and used social media to create a buzz around herself, rather than getting in with a modeling agency like most runway stars. She loves her curves and refuses to get rid of them just to conform to what the fashion industry believes is beautiful, ultimate thinness. Instead, she has ultimate confidence and sticks up for what she believes is right. She’s been put down by many talent agencies and brands, including Victoria’s Secret whose top talent booker, Sophia Neophitou, said, “She is too obvious. She’s like a page 3 girl. She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy.”

Much to their surprise, and many fan’s delight, Upton is regularly on the cover of popular magazines, including Vogue. In regards to her career she said, “It was hard when I was first in the industry and people were like: ‘No, you are fat.’ But my body is something that you have to work out and eat healthily for.”

What do you guys think? Is she happy and healthy or are the critics right?

The Age of the Plus Size Models?
The Age of the Plus Size Models?
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2009

Recently there has been a lot of discussion regarding plus size models hitting the scene in magazines, ads, and on television. What makes a model plus size is becoming a lively topic on a lot of talk shows and in news stories.

I am an expert at being plus size.  I have been plus size most of my life.  I can remember being plus size since I was about 9 years old. I have always struggled with my weight and still do today, but now with a different perspective.

I no longer let my weight be the ruler of me. What is inside matters most. I am sure that people see me and think 'oh my goodness, look at that fat lady!' And don’t get me wrong, I am not happy with my weight or the state of my health, and I think about it a lot, but I try to not let it stop me from being who I am or doing what I do.

I used to let it stop me. I used to let people get the best of me when I got called names all throughout school. These people could obviously ONLY see the outer me and not my inner beauty. Today people are able to see the REAL me, and accept me for who I am.  More and more people are now struggling with weight and with obesity, and therefore, more people are understanding my struggle since they are going through it as well.  There are a lot of people I know who weren’t plus size throughout school, but they are now, so it does catch up to you if you are not careful about what you eat or how much you exercise.

People are debating about what size defines plus size models, and whether or not there should even be plus size models. I wish they would not judge these models by their size, but by their inner beauty. When it comes to age, people often say that “age ain’t nothing but a number.” So then, why should we have to go by the number when it comes to modeling? Why can’t models be judged by their inner beauty and personality? I understand that it has to do with the argument that you cannot see inner beauty in pictures, but I believe you can.  If a woman is confident and feels great about herself, it radiates and her beauty shines through in pictures, in ads, commercials, and in everything that she does.

Models shouldn't be chosen by size, and shame on the modeling companies for doing so.  And a huge HOORAY to the companies who are responding to the need for the representation of plus size women in fashion magazines, and for taking the initial steps to change the outdated ways of ONLY using a size 4.

A beautiful smile and graceful curviness will sell me clothing, accessories.  Simply  flaunting what she has on and looking REAL can totally sell me any day. And if this means she is a size 4, then that's great, but if she is a size 24 that is fantastic too.


Beth Davis, blogger of theplussizemommy.com, is a 34 year old Christian mommy of 4. She has been married to her husband for 13 years. She was also a Foster mommy to two adorable boys for a year.  After a rewarding Child Care career working with Pre-K children, Beth decided to become a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) to raise her 4 children.
