Once again, models are speaking out against the unrealistic standards set by the fashion industry.

On Monday, supermodel Karlie Kloss spoke with Hearst global chief content officer Joanna Coles at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity where she opened up about getting body shamed by casting agents throughout her career.

Taylor Swift's friend revealed to the audience:

"I was called both too fat and too thin by a casting agent on the same day."

The 24-year-old believes there is no perfect body type, and wishes designers would produce clothes for a diverse range of female shapes and sizes.

Despite the criticism, Kloss made a commitment to focus on health and nutrition, as opposed to a number on the scale. She added:

"I don't want to please anyone but myself."

This isn't the first time a model has spoken up about the abuses of the fashion world. As we reported in May, Danish model Ulrikke Hoyer claims she was fired from Louis Vuitton's Cruise show in Japan for being "too big" despite being a size 2 with a 24-inch waist.

Hopefully, the fashion world will pay attention to Karlie's statement, and will change the way it treats models.
