The “Curvy” (But I Really Mean Skinny) On Daisy Lowe
Okay, so Lowe is the new face for Marc Jacob’s Marc by Marc Spring 2009 campaign. Rumor also has it that she snagged the DKNY campaign, to be shot by The Sartorialist photographer Scott Schuman. Jacobs calls her “adorable” and and Fashionologie says Lowe could bring about “the death of size zero.” Compliments? Yes. Patronizing compliments? You bet.
Whoever thinks Daisy Lowe is a “curvy” model really ought to have their eyes checked. Let us assess the situation:
Height: 5′ 10″
Measurements: 32.5″ – 25.5″ – 35″
Lowe is an A-cup, with a tiny waist, the average model hip measurements and a typical model height. She isn’t curvy at all. If anything, Whitney Thompson should be considered curvy and NOT plus sized. And the media wonders why eating disorders are so popular these days.
