From Vogue’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” August:
We’re not trying to be catty (okay, maybe a little), but is this article supposed to make us sympathetic to the plight of out-of-work models? Should we shake our heads in dismay over the irony of being too pretty for modeling work?
We might feel more compassion for Carolyn Murphy if she weren’t trying to ingratiate herself in an industry where appearance is paramount. It’s enough that the rest of us are judged on our looks in situations where our faces and bodies have no bearing; must we be subjected to the complaints of a woman who uses her face and body to impose unrealistic standards on the rest of us?
