Myla Dalbesio is one of the most inspiring models out there. Why do you ask? Because when I look at her beautiful body, I see a realistic (albeit still amazing) image staring back at me. This 27-year-old model is a size 10 and therefore considered a “plus size” model in this industry (which in itself is surprising). But that hasn’t slowed her down one bit.
Recently Myla Dalbesio has been signed to model Calvin Klein underwear in the brands latest Perfectly Fit campaign. Their goal is to represent women of all different shapes and sizes, releasing a statement to the New York Times saying that “The new Calvin Klein Underwear Perfectly Fit imagery features models Myla Dalbesio, Jourdan Dunn, Amanda Wellsh, Ji Hye Park and the face of the brand, Lara Stone, in several styles. The Perfectly Fit line was created to celebrate and cater to the needs of different women, and these images are intended to communicate that our new line is more inclusive and available in several silhouettes in an extensive range of sizes.” Well thank goodness they aren’t going the Victoria Secret route.
So far this experience has been incredibly positive for Myla Dalbesio, she stated on Elle that she was worried about the shoot and how people would regard her “in terms of her size or shape”. I’m glad that the process went well though, because I see absolutely no reason why a shoot with her should be any different than a shoot with Lara Stone. Beauty is beauty after all!
