BABE OF THE DAY STEFANIA FERRARIO
From being the hot topic in the daily news to shattering the image of a traditional model, Stefania Ferrario is on everyones radar. The Melbourne based model refuses to subscribe to anybody’s notion of beauty except her own and you gotta respect that. She doesn’t want to be referred to as a plus sized model, just a model will suffice. I don’t know about your particular taste but if you ask me this girl is stunning and can hold her own with any of the thinner girls gracing magazine pages. She has set out to make a statement and change the way the industry categorizes models by challenging the status quo. Check out this excerpt from an instagram post and then enjoy a gallery of stefania ferrario’s pictures below.
I am a model FULL STOP. Unfortunately in the modelling industry if you’re above a US size 4 you are considered plus size, and so I’m often labelled a ‘plus size’ model. I do NOT find this empowering. A couple of days ago, @ajayrochester called the industry to task for its use of the term ‘plus size’ by making the point that it is ‘harmful’ to call a model ‘plus’ and ‘damaging for the minds of young girls’. I fully support Ajay and agree with her. Let’s have models of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities, and drop the misleading labels. I’m NOT proud to be called ‘plus’, but I AM proud to be called a ‘model’, that is my profession!
