This Thin Model Has Been Deemed "Too Big" For the Fashion Industry
While part of the fashion world is ready to kick ridiculous body-type standards to the curb, we've still got a long way to go. Case in point: a 19-year-old Swedish woman, who recently took to YouTube to call out the industry that's labeled her "too big" to model.
Standing in front of the mirror and showing off her slim figure, Agnes Hedengard points to parts of her body that she's been told are "big" or "wide" by agencies and clients. And if simply looking at her doesn't make you want to say "WTF?!" perhaps her BMI of 17.5 — a number that's actually very low and often associated with serious health risks — will.
Read on to watch the now-viral clip in full, then keep scrolling for photos of Agnes that further prove this label is completely absurd.
