America's Next Top Model first plus-size winner and candle designer Whitney Thompson is blasting Vogue for not including women of all shapes and sizes in every issue.
The National Eating Disorders ambassador said of the mag's "shape issue":
Great, I applaud Vogue for having a shape issue, but screw Vogue for not having shapes in every issue. It's B.S. It's frustrating. It's infuriating because we have to be excited, we have to be thrilled that there's one issue that has girls who eat. Great! But it should be in every issue. So I think we have to keep fighting. We have to celebrate and pat ourselves on the back for what we've done, but we have to do more.
Whitney also added her two cents on Unkle Karl and his own issues with larger models:
Karl Lagerfeld two years ago was saying the only people who care about plus size are the fat mummies sitting on their couches eating crisps. Now he's shooting the plus issue for V, are you kidding? Really V, you forgot about that? I mean, it was a huge issue. And he has a Chanel line for plus girls and Crystal Renn's in it and it's so fake, it's so phony and people just jump on the bandwagon.
She makes some great points, but we think it's safe to say she won't be getting any calls from Chanel or Vogue anytime soon.
