Even . Models . Get . the . Blues

Winter is always a bit of a difficult time for me weight-wise. From mid-December on, Michigan is a frigid place, and so it's always a problem getting enough exercise to fight those holiday pounds. I try to go for a run on the treadmill every day, but when the rest of the day is spent sitting about, I'm not sure the run helps all that much.

So it was actually quite refreshing to read Lara Stone's interview in the January issue of Vogue:

"Photographed by Willy Vanderperre for the January issue of American Vogue, Lara Stone appears in a feature about her struggle as a size 4 model in an industry dominated by twos and zeros. In an interview with Rebecca Johnson, she reveals some of the trials faced in costume fittings: 'It’s depressing when the clothes don’t fit and you are always the odd one out…I was on a shoot last week and the stylist took out this tight corset dress and said, ‘Here, put it on,’ and I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?’"

Lara Stone - gorgeous supermodel that she is - has an enviable figure, but it's kind of nice to know that everyone has image issues that they struggle with.

When I read the story, I just couldn't believe that a girl who such a beautiful figure could ever be considered too large. We really all do go through this.

She's one of the few models who actually have a woman's figure. I understand the reason why she's always the one odd out, but - if I were her - I would be proud of it! Photographers and designers love her, and that is enough.
