Fashion Crowd Weighs In On Plus-Size Models (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The Cut asked the fashion crowd to weigh in on plus-size models and the responses were...well, interesting.

Designer Douglas Hannant told the camera, "I think plus-sized women can be beautiful, but it's not my ideal on the runway because I'm not doing a plus-size line. I feel that a model is like an athlete. She needs to be in runway shape." Stylist Annabel Tollman remarked that she hates the term entirely and model Maggie Rizer said she "thinks the industry is probably over-compensating a bit."
