Kelly Cutrone Gets REAL About The Highly Critiqued "Thin Emphasis" In Modeling

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionModelsBusiness BlitzCalvin KleinKelly CutroneAmerica's Next Top Model

Kelly Cutrone is her usual amazing blunt self about multiple faucets in the fashion industry!

If anyone’s going to step up and be honest about this topic, it’s Kelly Cutrone!

The Queen of Blunt Honesty recently opened up in an interview about her upcoming judgeship on America’s Next Top Model cycle 20, and discussed the HIGHly controversial issue of ultra-skinny models.

She comes from a very experienced PR perspective, and used her years of industry knowledge to support her argument, explaining:

"Society has a hyper emphasis on thin and that trend comes from the consumers — it does not come from the fashion industry. The fashion industry needs to make money, that's what we do. If people said, 'we want a 300 pound purple person,' the first industry to do it would be fashion.

You look at the Dove campaign in Times Square — it sticks out like a sore thumb. Those girls in the white T-shirts and underwear, next to Calvin Klein [and all the other fashion ads]. As a consumer, it doesn't make me want to buy Dove. I'm all for the real look, but as a consumer it doesn't make me want to buy clothes."

So long story short: don't blame the industry for always hiring skinny models, blame society.

Do U agree???

    lol, nope! she's completely delusional if she believes that. models have been getting progressively skinnier over the years. hell, even in the 90s they had more meat on their bones than a lot of the girls do now, with the exception of kate moss. and anyway models can still be thin, but we really don't need to see their bones protruding. they've gotten TOO thin and that's the industry's fault for making sample sizes that no grown person can possibly fit into. only 12 year olds can fit into those sizes so it's no surprise so many of the models are getting younger and younger as well. the industry needs to change

    Dove doesn't sell clothes, it sells skin products. Their ads are about feeling good about yourself, whatever your size. How can you feel uncomfortable with that?
