I was just about jumping up and down when the judges named Whitney as the winner of Season 10’s ANTM. The “plus-sized” girl won! It’s been fascinating watching her intersections with the fashion industry. At one go-see, she was told with some scorn that her size was a problem.
Now, coming from a woman who weighs 350+ pounds, Whitney isn’t plus-sized, but compared to her competition she is. She also has said that she received negative treatment from her peers. I can so totally relate, so it’s awesome to see someone who took those hurtful messages and used them to grow stronger, and then on top of that, to totally rock a modeling competition!
I’m proud of you, Whitney!! Go girl!!
