On Tuesday, Gaga posted four photographs of herself scantily clad in underwear that plainly showed her body on her website. She then admitted to having suffered from eating disorders as a teenager ("Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15") and encouraged others to share photographs and stories about their body image issues, in something that she is calling the "Body Revolution." The online forum can be found on her website, LittleMonsters.com.
Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley: "Manipulating young girls and boys into thinking they have to fit designer clothes, instead of designing the clothes that fit the person, is both outlandish and cruel. Don't these designers have mothers, daughters, sons, sisters? Don't they want to make people feel empowered and beautiful in their clothes?"
Why is designing clothes for average-sized people, and models that are also average sizes such a foreign concept? Do you think it will ever change?
