Designer Calls Plus Models A “Joke”
Once again a fashion designer has thrown in his $0.02 about plus models.
According to Stylelist, this is what Julien Macdonald had to say about plus size models:
“Sometimes fashion designers are better seen and not heard.
Macdonald made the controversial comments after defending “Britain’s Next Top Model” — on which he now serves as a judge — and its decision to not follow in the footsteps of “America’s Next Top Model” by featuring curvier contestants, according to the paper.
“This is a serious show. You can’t have a plus-size girl winning — it makes it a joke.
“It’s not fair on them — you’re setting them up for a fall. I know what would happen to them. They are looked down on.”
What do you think about Mr. Macdonald’s statement?
