9 Models on the Pressure to Lose Weight and Body Image | The Models | Vogue

In the third episode of “The Models,” Vogue’s four-part docu-series, runway stars get real about eating disorders, size discrimination, and the fashion’s fraught relationship with weight. Through candid conversations and never-before-shared stories, they describe what it’s like to challenge the status quo and why attaining a healthy body image is more important than booking a runway show.

    Where do I send my portfolio

    God. When I hear their stories, and I look around me and see all these fat, ugly men, whose bellies enter the room before they do, and old, scarecrow women—old, dried up women, making judgements about these young, beautiful women and their bodies, it makes me sick. We should line up all these old, dried up, fat sick “controllers of the modeling industry” and yell obscenities at them and throw rotten tomatoes at their smelly, old bodies. NEVER, EVER let another person put you down just because they don’t think you meet some kind of modeling ideal they have in their heads!!!

    interesting that not a single model featured is one of the top current ones who comply with these insane standards. they’d never admit the things they have to do to keep their bodies.

    No matter what size, you still have to be over 5’8” and have a gorgeous face to be a model. That excludes most everyone



  5. Shan Shan on March 24, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    If it is any comfort, I dont know you or what shame you 2:53

    Gemma Ward’s influence in fashion is still felt until this day. She really was a modern day supermodel. Sad to think how much it traumatised her .



  7. Aj Fet on March 24, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    The NERVE of Vogue doing this is sickening… YOU did this to these girls, and now you want them to talk about what you did? What’s wrong with you people?



  8. Sue Gray on March 24, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    All girls who were naturally tall and skinny who could never put on weight and were born to be models those that complained because they struggled have now ruined it, now anyone can be a model regardless of size, looks, deformities etc



  9. American Boy on March 24, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    this goes for male models too. you’re part of the act when it comes to acting like women are the only ones living on earth. sickening



  10. 🥥tropical gymnast 🥥 on March 24, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Ok so basically they say you need to be slim to be pretty hello eat disorders for me and the public

    Ok model agency need to sort there problems out



  11. Sofia Fasullo on March 24, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    I was confused when Hailey Clauson said Sports Illustrated fully accepted her. I feel like SI swimsuit shoots are hypersexualized and ofc there can be empowerment in that, but since EVERY SI shoot has the same hypersexualization I’ll take a guess and say it wasn’t Hailey Clauson’s idea. So it makes me feel like if you have a mature body with some curves then your modeling opportunities in high fashion are limited but there are job prospects if you are willing to be hypersexualized. This is ofc a generalization, but I don’t think we should equate SI’s "opportunity" with radical acceptance



  12. Peachii Fuzz on March 24, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    My issue with the fashion industry is the consumer is by far MUCH larger then the models. I personally want to see clothing on all sizes to determine what trends/clothing I should buy. I’m not interested in seeing clothing on just super tall super petite models.

    There is an interesting divide in women now, between those going for the runway look, and those aspiring for the hourglass. These women’s jobs did not allow them to have protruding hips. But in 2021, in almost every other facet of media besides runway modeling, beautiful means having hips and a butt. I am an inverted triangle or swimmer’s body type. I hold weight on top when I gain it. My shoulders are the widest part of my body. And I hate that I don’t have hips or a butt. It’s painful irony that these women were discriminated against for their curves when I’ve always despised not having them. It’s that grass is always greener thing. Your social circle influences your self perception greatly. Other modeling venues will support curvy women and healthy weights. To those that have more curves, find a gig where your body type is celebrated!

    The way Myla just started breaking down, goodness, it breaks my heart because that shame others inflicted on you never does truly go away, all we can do is try our best and better our habits.



  15. Aadya Sharma on March 24, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    I was nearly suicidal about my body image when I found this. These guys are saviours for sharing their stories.
    And btw, all these people throwing shade on Vogue – as valid as it maybe – it’s y’all fueling what they do with your fatphobia. Where are those people now, who counter body positivity with "But fat is unhealthy" ? This is what your thinking creates, because it’s always 5 more pounds, never thin enough.



  16. cerdorengoverde on March 24, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    This breaks my heart.



  17. shovelyJoe on March 24, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Unless I see healthy women with their real bodies on Vogue. F*k you Vogue!



  18. BizNeat on March 24, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Sometimes I wonder if all the designers want teenager sized models because they are super bad at making runway clothes that fits curvatures. Or super bad at making different size of clothes. With thin models, all they need is to make a standard flat clothes, put onto models and use pins for the rest of the job.

    If teardrops could be bottled up there be a swimming pool filled with models.



  21. Lauren Wardell on March 24, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    People always think that modelling is like a dream job but they don’t realise how much pressure they’re under



  22. Time is Preciously Precious on March 24, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Bro why did you enter modeling in the first place?



  23. Soph on March 24, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    ah yes, vogue posted this. funny



  24. Victoria S. Sandoval on March 24, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Do f*cking something about it Vogue, more than these quasi docs to get followers.



  25. Musa Noah on March 24, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    It’s funny and so annoying how they removed the dislikes this video had



  26. iris on March 24, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Lmaooo Vogue producers acting like they don’t do anything either is something else



  27. Rose A on March 24, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    She was rejected my high fashion then was ‘embraced’ but Sports Illustrated. Girl they sexualized you.



  28. Felice 0 Miserable 21 on March 24, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    "i wanted to hide" thats probably why she filmed for 4 million people to see her. makes sense…



  29. niloo far on March 24, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Not just they hurt themselves but they hurt all teenagers who are not like them and are insecure about their body.



  30. Lilly on March 24, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Isn’t it ironic how this video is presented by VOGUE the CEO of eating disorders and unhealthy body image?



  31. Angelica Borghi on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Says Vogue lmaoooo we all know what Anna Wintour thinks about what the models should look like



  32. fdafdsa fdsafdsa on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Lmfao



  33. loonapopper on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    great now can you post what they eat in a day



  34. Thomas Voigt on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Honestly, I don’t really get what the problem is. A slim figure simply looks best, so obviously it’s expected of models to stay slim. They can always quit when they don’t have the discipline any more. Real supermodels like Olga Sherer or Anna Selezneva always stayed in top shape in their modeling career.



  35. Natalie Kennedy on March 24, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I think models should just be thicc



  36. Francheska Santos on March 24, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    The dark side of modeling and fashion industry, makes people looks ugly and unhealthy



  37. QUIXOTICALLY LIVING on March 24, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Yea somebody need to stop Yolanda Hadid’ing these poor girls.



  38. Don't Settle on March 24, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    I love that they did this!!!!



  39. english studi on March 24, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    VOGUE says thinner is better.
    "Beyonce"

  40. Carrie Fullwiler on March 24, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    sad…



  41. Spider_ _noodles on March 24, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Even the plus sized models have to have a certain body type they don’t show all body types. Like it’s crazy



  42. elva136 on March 24, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Thank god I took my education seriously and got a job where having a mind is important and not body.



  43. Mattilyn Bryant on March 24, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    How dare vogue pretend they’re not part of the problem



  44. Rebeca Milla on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I really feel bad for these girls, they shouldn’t be judged like that or ashamed, I mean they are so pretty and look like really nice people but the industry damaged them and those insecurities are now something they’ll carry with them for the rest of their lives.



  45. Savena Walker on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Are these the mean girls of the modeling industry



  46. Melody al on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Why VS models don’t EVER say anything real and what’s wrong in the industry?! I wonder why they always present themselves as if it’s innocent, beautiful, amazing job meanwhile behind the curtains there is happening ,torture’ towards them.. Plus VOGUE making this interview is very much hypocratic!!!



  47. Aditi Malik on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    it is like the devil interviewing its victims to come off good by giving them a platform to release the anger and sadness – vogue & models



  48. loui lo98io on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    allahım ikiyüzlülüğe gel.



  49. ScienceTechRo on March 24, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    OMG, those crocodile cries. Pathetic. Typical for women.
