Chrissy Teigen Had the Perfect Response to the Calvin Klein "Plus-Size" Model Controversy

Last week, a whole controversy erupted when Calvin Klein used a gorgeous, size 10 model in their "Perfectly Fit" campaign.

While Calvin Klein never referred to her as "plus-size" or made any distinction between her and the other models in the photos, it still caused a huge uproar.

Essentially, it became more of a discussion about how ridiculous the body standards are in the modeling industry. Why is a size 10 considered "plus-size" and why is using someone with a very normal body such a big deal? Shouldn't that be the norm?

Sadly, it's not, and while some of the anger might have been a bit misdirected at Calvin Klein, we appreciate that this subject is being discussed and hopefully it will help bring about change in the industry.

If anyone knows what it's like to be scrutinized as a model for your weight, it's Chrissy Teigen, who recently revealed to DuJour magazine that she was fired from a Forever 21 modeling gig when she was younger because of her weight.

That being the case, we were super curious to hear what she thought of this whole Calvin Klein controversy. When E! News asked her that exact question, Chrissy said she didn't understand what all the fuss was about: "She looked beautiful, who cares?!"

We couldn't have said it better ourselves! Why does she have to be classified according to her size or weight. How about we just call her a model? A stunning model, actually, who had every right to be featured in that campaign.
