ATTACKED? HOUNDED? Bringin' out the cray cray!
Bringin' out the cray cray!
Oh bugger. Things have gone cray cray down under!
The Australian press are having a field day over Gemma Ward and it's unfortunate that I'm taking the heat for it.
If you were to believe what the Sunday Telegraph Australia said today, I (along with other bloggers apparently) "hounded" and "attacked" the beautiful Aussie model and made her quit modeling.
Click click click!
9 News in Australia reports that fashion bloggers attacked her for being "too fat".
I think my previous blog post was taken out of context and I feel like I'm kind of being portrayed as this size-zero "hissing and hounding", anti-fat model bully/career killer.
Yes, I made commentary in regards to her weight gain...
I think it's very sad that Gemma gave up on modeling. She's a very beautiful woman and I think she could make a name for herself in the plus-size niche. You know, give Crystal Renn a run for her money. I would love to see curvier girls in fashion and Gemma Ward represents curvy women like no other.
... and I stand by, 100%, what I said.
Gemma is absolutely beautiful and I think (this is just my opinion; agree to disagree everyone) that she's a perfect fit for plus-size (or any for that matter -- I just want her to be THERE) modeling as opposed to the world of high fashion which we all know, let's not be hypocrites here, require girls to fit a very rigorous and very specific standard.
I just it find puzzling how the media thought of it as an attack.
If you or anyone are offended by the comment I made above then it's your prerogative.
From The Sunday Territorian:
For the record, I do not post on Fashionologie, as reported by The Sunday Telegraph in Sydney.
And I'm not the one making mean-spirited captions such as "SHOW'S OVER"....
or "Gemma Wide", as posted by ABC News.
It's gone out of control...
On a lighter note, a friend joked that I'll probably never be able to show my face in Australia again because a lynch mob of fatties will run me out of town. On the upside, they probably won't be running very fast.
I WRITE THAT IN JEST Y'ALL!
