Maybe it's just because I saw Girl Model yesterday (I'm late to the party, and I accept that), but there's something I find a little shocking about model Jourdan Dunn being taken out of this year's Dior show because of her chest.
Taking to Twitter, the British model revealed the cancellation as well as her feelings about it: "Ahahahahahahha I just got cancelled from Dior because of my boobs! I (love) fashion."
As Vogue UK reports, the 22-year-old mother of two is measured with a 32" bust on models.com, and had also tweeted about attending fittings over the weekend.
"Spent my Sunday afternoon squeezing my skinny self into corsets — fun #CoutureTorture."
But while Dunn has a sense of humour about the whole thing, her second tweet was still pretty upsetting (because come on, fashion world, get it together).
"I'm normally told I'm cancelled because I'm 'coloured' so being cancelled because of my boobs is a minor :)" she said.
See? Fashion world! Get it together! If this is how Jourdan Dunn is getting treated (who's a world-renowned model), imagine how hard it is for the up-and-comers. Yikes. So maybe it's time we talk about expanding our view of "acceptable" runway shapes, hm? And then, if we're feeling particularly crazy, we work on changing them.
What do you guys think?
