Supermodel Doutzen Kroes, who is probably best known for her work with Victoria's Secret, has been in the modelling industry for over a decade now, so knows a thing or two about how it all works. Doutzen has now hit out at the modelling industry, for using girls that are too young and have yet to fully develop.
Kroes was chatting to the London newspaper The Telegraph, when she told them, “I’m not a sample size at all. At some shows I know they have been using very young girls who have not gone into the change of the body yet – no hips, no boobs."
She added, "I’m 28 and I’ve had a baby; I have a woman’s body, and once in a while you run into the fact that things are not fitting the way they should be. But I joke about it and say 'What 13-year-old girl is wearing this?' If they think I’m too fat, I’d rather not do the job – because I am super healthy and fit and I’m so happy the way I am."
Doutzen Kroes does have a point, as models have continued to get skinny every year. Back in the early 1990s, models weighed just 8% less than the average, everyday woman but now, models weigh a staggering 23% less, showing just how much the modelling industry has changed.
