Scan to read Robyn’s thoughts on thigh gaps, thinspo and the truth about her body Read Mind the gap Curvy Kate lashes out Curvy and confident, Kate Upton is leading the charge against the new “thigh gap” trend Kate shows off her world- famous body in a red-HOT frock by Antonio Berardi at the Melbourne Cup last week. “Thinspiration” pics are harming girls, according to robyn. K ate Upton’s voluptuous looks are celebrated the world over. Getting her break as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model in 2011, she’s become a proud poster-girl for womanly curves. Now the 21-year-old is calling out her critics, telling FAMOUS why she won’t slim down – and her bold move has industry peers following her lead. Most recently? Aussie plus-size model Robyn Lawley, 24, spoke out against the disturbing “thigh gap” trend – which describes legs so thin that they don’t touch – after internet trolls labelled the size-14 beauty “too hefty” and a “pig” when her photo appeared on a Facebook page promoting thigh gaps. “I couldn’t care less about needing a supposed ‘thigh gap’,” Robyn wrote in a blog post for news site The Daily Beast, which has since made headlines around the world. “It’s just another tool of manipulation that other people are trying to use to keep me from loving my body. Why would I want to starve and weaken my natural body size?... After body bullies criticised her lack of a “thigh gap”, size-14 model Robyn Lawley slammed the trend in a blog post for news site The Daily Beast. “Women have enough pressure as it is,” she writes. “The last thing I would want for my future daughter would be to starve herself because she thought a thigh gap was necessary.” Robyn hits back yes 93% no 7% You say Tell us what you think – and be in the mag! Should there be more models like Kate? robyn’s curves are in demand. Photo:Facebook I would have to change my entire frame just to achieve something that seems so trivial.” No stranger to cruel body criticism, Kate is on Team Robyn. The US-born model – who was in Australia last week for the 2013 Emirates Melbourne Cup as a guest of the Victoria Racing Club and Emirates – tells FAMOUS, “I love my curves and I’m very confident with who I am.” That confidence was famously put to the test last year when a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show casting agent publicly compared her to a “footballer’s wife”, declaring she would “never” be up to the world-famous lingerie brand’s standards. But a resilient Kate rose above it. “After I realised I wasn’t Victoria’s Secret’s favourite model, I had more room to expand in a direction that a model with a [curvy] body hadn’t in a really long time,” she reveals. “It didn’t really get me down. It changed my direction of where I wanted to go next.” Since then, she’s fronted US, UK, Italian and Brazilian Vogue – as well as earning back-to-back covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Next, she’s set to take on the big screen with a role in romcom The Other Woman, which will see her act alongside Cameron Diaz, 41, and Leslie Mann, also 41. Says the humble starlet, “I’m so lucky I had them [to work with].” With all her success, it’s no wonder that Kate – like Robyn – refuses to change to fit an unrealistic, unattainable look. “I choose to go the route of [’80s] supermodels like Christie Brinkley and Cindy Crawford,” she says. “They were a huge inspiration. I’m happy people are embracing me like I embraced them.” But the cheeky beauty admits that, like most girls, there is one time she does feel insecure – “Once a month!” Fam ousfeature
