Looking at this woman from any other perspective - from outside the strict, bizarre world of fashion - Myla Dalbesio isn't "plus-size". She is MODEL SIZE. Angular in places, soft in others, but with semi-protruding ribs and minimal body fat. She is stunning to look at, obviously. She's a beauty. But 'plus-size'? No.

Tattoos have a long and rich cultural history but it seems that in the last 5-10 years they have really hit the mainstream. With the likes of Justin Bieber and One Direction having tattoos all over their body tattoo really can't be considered a rebellious counter-culture any more.

Instead of focussing on something that is never going to change why not realise that the majority of working models in the UK are healthy, happy people who probably work out less and eat worse than most of us.

The days were long, tedious and rather tiring and I quickly learnt that everything I had heard about being a fashion intern was frighteningly true. The lows are lower than low, but the highs are pretty darn great... "If I can do this and still love this industry, than this is the industry for me."

But it's the one or two that do take advantage of the wannabees that ruin the reputation of the industry for the rest of us. It doesn't take much for the media to make the modelling industry public enemy number one and sadly the negative stories will always get more exposure than the many honest people working in the industry that are helping to secure their models a good working wage.

To have and maintain a body like the ones men's magazines portray, I had to dedicate myself to it like it was a full time job. In fact, it WAS a full time job. Surely that 's (Like the Size Zero) unattainable to the majority of men? How can someone maintain that training regime with a family, career, dog etc?

Alexandra Shulman Says People Don't Want to See 'Real' in Vogue - And As A Reader I Heartily Agree

The skinny models don't make me feel bad about myself (and, to be clear, that's not because I'm in any way model-esque. Picture the average woman. That's me).
