Wow, here is a very refreshing quote from Helena Christensen about her time as a model, in the early days.
“No one ever came up to me and said, “you need to reshape your body, to lose weight, or to be more outgoing, or less outgoing”. We were just allowed to be us, and I think at the end of the day, isn’t that the whole point of being a human being? To be allowed to be yourself, to be accepted the way you are?” (Elle UK)
I somehow doubt that models today can say the same thing.
