HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE CONTROVERSY OF THE SIZE 0 DEBATE IN THE INDUSTRY?

Well there is nothing to really debate because beauty encompasses variety, difference and uniqueness. I believe God made people diverse so each of us could colour and fill the earth with uniqueness. That pertains to all the different skin color shades, all the different body sizes, shapes, all the different characters and anything else you know that makes you YOU.

ESTEEM AND POSITIVE BODY IMGE?
