After supermodels Jourdan Dunn and Lara Stone, Myla Dalbesio is the next model to star in the underwear campaign of Calvin Klein. The black and white pictures, shot by Lachlan Bailey, have nothing different from the usual ones of this campaign. The only thing is that the 27 year-old model is considered plus-size. And this where the controversy begins. Social media people were angered by that definition, when Dalbesio’s size is just 38 EU. A spokesperson of the famous company stated that they never referred to her as a plus size model and the line’s purpose was to respond to the needs of different women too.
Dalbesio clears things up it her interview for Elle magazine by telling that “It’s kind of confusing because I’m a bigger girl. There were no divisions in the shoot, noting that there was no separate section for “plus size girls”.
