Size 4 Fashion Week Model Coco Rocha is Losing Work Because of Her Weight
What is the fashion world coming to?
Australian model Coco Rocha is slowly being shunned by top designers. Why? Because she’s a size 4.
The 21-year-old advocate for industry reform recently told the New York Times that finding work has been challenging due to her healthy figure.
And although she isn’t receiving as many offers as her scary-skinny peers, Rocha refuses to back down.
“It took a while to grow the confidence to say, ‘This is who I am, take it or leave it,'” she proudly stated last week at an event thrown by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
We applaud Rocha for sticking to her guns. (The New York Daily News)
