So a friend of mine told me that the latest winner of America's Next Top Model was plus-sized, and I thought, cool! That's awesome!
Well, it would be awesome, if she were actually plus-sized.
I mean, don't get me wrong, she's a very beautiful woman, and I'm sure she's very talented and charismatic. (Really, honestly not being sarcastic.) But she's a size 10! That is not plus-size! That's just not really skinny! (Which, I guess, is a step.) Seriously, folks plus-sized doesn't really start until size 12 or 14 depending on the clothing brand/designer.
Unless you're paying the extra ten bucks for the same outfit, it's not plus sized!
Gaze, Internets, at what a plus-sized woman is actually shaped like!
Also, gaze at the dirtiness of my bathroom mirror and my inability to set the white balance on my digital camera!
Now, I certainly lack the talent to be a model, I'm not photogenic and I don't have the acting ability or the physical stamina. But come on, people. There is an entire industry full of plus-sized models that would probably be happy to win reality shows, too.
And besides, Project Runway is still more interesting.
