If you look back at Helena Christensen or Christy Turlington, they were probably a 4 or a 6 – they had beautiful bodies, very lean, obviously, and gorgeous.
The girls walking the catwalk [now] are very, very thin and very tall.
Samples are a size zero – they’re so tiny. I’m 5’10”, a giant, and I wear a size 10 shoe. Sometimes I just have to settle for what fits. But if I were 5’2″ and really petite [like a lot of actresses] I could wear those things.
I was very tall growing up and it always made me feel awkward about myself. I was embarrassed by my height and I felt very self- conscious about standing out in a crowd, which is exactly the opposite of what a model is trained to do.
