My Body, My Rules: Why I Won't Let Anyone Dictate What I Should Look Like

Charli Howard | Posted 12.08.2016 | UK Style
Charli Howard

I'm only human. I'm not designed to starve myself to fit into anyone else's standards of beauty. And, model-wise or not, I certainly do not deserve to be told what body shape of mine someone else prefers. Let me assure you, trying to stay that thin is a LIFESTYLE, not an existence, and certainly not something I ever wish to recreate.

Let's stop segregating models by their measurements. Let's stop letting hip sizes dictate whether someone is model-worthy or not. Let's start finding more Maya's and Barbara's, and bring modeling back to what it's best at: discovering charismatic, unique and beautiful faces, that all women can aspire to.

As a former model and photographer, I have trodden the catwalk during London Fashion Week, photographed an editorial shoot for Elle magazine, and was the youngest person to exhibit in the National Portrait Gallery.

Neely Reyes

My agency works with some of the biggest brands on the high street - Topshop, River Island, Selfridges just to name a few. The majority of our models are a size 8 or a size 10 yet they work regularly with these brands because it's about a healthy, well-proportioned figure. In fact, we only represent one size six model and she is finding it almost impossible to get work because she's just too thin!

Yesterday, Playboy has decided it will no longer publish nude photos. For me, as a model who spent 10 years in the world of glamour - this is a sad day.

Neely Reyes | Posted 17.08.2016 | UK Style
Neely Reyes

As much as the large agencies have used their size to push their competitors around, what they haven't been able to do is control the direction that fashion and retail has headed. The problem they face is that the modelling industry is changing; the price of model bookings has dropped because the demand for website imagery has increased.

The Plus Size Debate Is Collapsing Into Farce

Neely Reyes | Posted 24.06.2015 | UK Style
Neely Reyes

First we wanted more representation for plus size women in modelling. Then we had plus size women 'reclaiming' the term. Then we had a nineties pop star say she disapproved of stores selling clothes in 'unhealthy' dress sizes. Now finally we have people saying we should drop the term 'plus size' altogether. Where will it all end?
