[ # ] Posh Spice says no to size zeros modeling her jeans!
February 19th, 2007 under The Beckhams, Thin Models Bad


VICTORIA BECKHAM is showing zero tolerance for ultra-thin models — and has banned them from promoting her fashion label. Yes, that’s right. Size zero Posh — who can make skinny jeans look baggy — does not want women like her to model her new denim range. Instead the ex SPICE GIRL has hired curvy girls such as DANIELLA SARAHYBA for the job. The former pin up for Sports Illustrated mag is well known in the industry for being slightly bigger than the usual catwalk strutters. Some cynics say Victoria has picked curvy women so she will look better standing next to them when she launches the brand in LA. But friends say she only wants to hire girls who have more curves than she does because they look more “natural”. Victoria recently said: “I know quite a few models and they actually eat, they’re just naturally thin girls.” Talking about her new range she added: “I am completely obsessed about jeans. “I have started wearing high-waist jeans but they do really squeeze you in round the waist and by the end of the day I was beginning to have mental images of my epitaph, ‘Victoria Beckham, done in by denim.’” A source said: “Victoria wants to give out a positive image that you don’t have to be ultra skinny to look good. Many of the models on the catwalk make young girls feel insecure about their own bodies. “Victoria doesn’t want to be accused of giving young girls a complex about their image and putting pressure on them to be as skinny as her.”

Good for her for not wanting girls to get a complex over their images. For someone like her to take a stand against size zeros maybe there is more hope others will listen.
