Myla Dalbesio makes history as Calvin Klein’s first size 10 model! ‘Bout time!

1415643600929_Image_galleryImage_Myla_Dalbesio_explodes_wi

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!

Aveeno has your skin covered this winter!

1415627484912_wps_11_PACIFIC_OCEAN_NOVEMBER_5_

Have you been watching the news? Superstorm “Bering Bomb” is upon the US – and I heard some states will see temps drop by 40 degrees or more! It’s time to take care of that skin of yours! As Aveeno Ambassadors, Make Her Up has some great tips for keeping your skin nourished this cold winter!

It’s November, which means the onset of colder temperatures and the start of National Healthy Skin Month! As temperatures and humidity drop, unpleasant changes can start to affect your skin. Your facial skin can become vulnerable, especially if you tend to suffer from redness and dryness. That’s why it’s important to follow a winter skin care regimen specifically to care for your facial skin.

In celebration of National Healthy Skin Month, dermatologist Dr. Lisa Chipps is revealing a few simple tips to keep your complexion looking its best this month and all winter long!

· Both morning and night, cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser like AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Foaming Cleanser. Its gentle formula will help prevent over-drying or aggravating sensitive skin.

aveeno-march-2014-2

o If you wear make-up try AVEENO® Ultra-Calming® Makeup Removing Wipes to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup before you go to bed.

· Moisture is essential during the winter months. After you wash your face, gently pat it dry and immediately apply a good moisturizer to prevent moisture loss. Be sure to reach for a moisturizer with a SPF of 30 or higher. SPF is always important – yes, even in the winter! This helps to protect against aging skin concerns, sunburns and skin cancers caused by UV rays reflecting off of the snow and ice.

· And last, but not least, general health and well-being promote great looking skin year-round. Eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, sleep – seven to eight hours daily, and manage your stress for a beautiful, healthy looking complexion.

AVEENO® offers a wide range of products to meet your winter skin care needs. Click here to view a full range of AVEENO® Face offerings.
