The shocking story about Coco Rocha

Coco Rocha is a stunning (ahem, Canadian) woman. And the April cover of Flare magazine is simply sublime. So I was shocked and outraged when I read a recent article in the New York Times stating that she was too fat to walk the runway during New York Fashion week! Yes, you read correctly, TOO FAT! Is that ridiculous or what???!

You can read her take on the matter on her lovely blog here.

All I can say is that if she is too big, where does that leave the rest of us?!!!

You can view the shooting for Flare Magazine below.

I adore your blog... and this is such a true story and glad you and Coco dare to speak out as this is such a sensitive area that no one dares to speak up about. Young girls not eating because otherwise they are too FAT... that is psycholigical abuse! All women are beautiful... but often we do not feel like that....or have lost it! Because of what others say.. or even worse do not say!!!
