Model Myla Dalbesio has made history by being Calvin Klein’s first size-10 model!

The 27-year-old Wisconsin native is considered plus-size by industry standards. While most models are size zero-two, and plus size is considered anything 12 and over, Myla lands somewhere in the middle.

‘It’s kind of confusing because I’m a bigger girl,’ Myla, who stands at 5ft 11in, told Elle. ‘I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating.’

Myla, who describes her body type as ‘in the middle,’ looks stunning in the ‘Perfectly Fit’ campaign, flaunting her curves in a black bra, her brunette hair slicked back.

She says the ad, which also features the more ‘straight-sized’ Jourdan Dunn, Ji Hye Park, Amanda Wellsh and Lara Stone, is revolutionary in that it doesn’t address that fact that she is the lone ‘plus-size’ model in the group.

‘I’m not skinny enough to be with the skinny girls and I’m not large enough to be with the large girls , and I haven’t been able to find my place,’ she explained. As such, ‘this [campaign] was such a great feeling.’

And yet some people have taken to Twitter in outrage that she could even be considered a ‘bigger’ girl.

‘Genuine WTF moment,’ one critic wrote in a tweet directed at Elle. ‘This woman is described as “plus-size” and “a bigger girl”. Aaaraagahagaagahahagahahag’.

Another person said: ‘I wouldn’t consider her a plus size model. Her height and her muscular tone should not categorize as a “big girl.”‘ And a third commented angrily: ‘How is that plus size??’

Despite the outcry, which seems to be directed at Elle rather than Calvin Klein, Myla says landing the campaign has made her hopeful that size is becoming less of an issue in the fashion industry.
I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than anyone Calvin Klein has ever worked with

‘They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there’s no distinction. It’s not a separate section for plus-size girls.’

Isn’t it absolutely crazy that we live in a world that considers HER to be big? She is absolutely gorgeous – and no part of her is big!

We’re proud of Calvin Klein for using a REAL women for their ads! Let’s hope the rest of the designers follow suit!

Christy Turlington poses with her husband Ed Burns in new Calvin Klein campaign!

o-CHRISTY-AND-ED-570

Well they make one stunning couple, don’t they?

Christy Turlington has modeled for Calvin Klein since 1995 when she appeared in their ‘Eternity’ campaign. She’s now back as the face of the iconic fragrance, and her husband, Ed Burns, is making his debut in the ads as well!

If at all possible, the photos released Friday are even better than the ones from back in the day. Perhaps that’s because, as the supermodel told Women’s Wear Daily, she didn’t have to fake it when it came to being intimate with her co-star:

Usually you pretend to be intimate on these types of campaigns, and when they go to change a lens or the roll of film is complete, you’re like, “So, how about those Mets?” It’s just awkward.

Well, if she ever did feel awkward in past campaigns, we certainly couldn’t tell. However, there is something really beautiful about seeing a couple pose together, especially for a brand that Turlington Burns has been connected to for so long.

They look too hot! I love that they’re still together!

Rooney Mara’s 7 Beauty Must-Haves

rooney-mara-cover-shoot-4

 

InStyle magazine chatted with Rooney Mara to find out the secret to her gorgeous skin and  get the scoop on her favorite products. To read more check out the current issue of InStyle magazine on newsstands now.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of …
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for “aspirational cut.”
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for “Rooney Mara brows.” Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance—that’s why they’re so prominent!

Rooney Mara stars in David Fincher-directed Calvin Klein commercial.

It’s not every day you see Rooney Mara smile – almost seems unnatural, doesn’t it? We’re used to seeing her in dark roles like ‘Girl With a Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Side Effects.’

Rooney was named the face of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance, Downtown.

The commercial is set to “Runaway” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and is directed by David Fincher, who worked with Mara on TGWTDT.

She looks great in this commercial, doesn’t she? Very Audrey Hepburn.
