    slightly OT, butI know a lot of models "rebrand" themselves for a new market/angle if their current one isn't working (i.e. Stella Maxwell). Does this sometimes involve weight gain? I know Grace Hartzel for example has been noted on here to gain/lose for certain clients or jobs...how common is this? @FashionThin maybe you can be of assistance

    She's signed with Ford in NY and didn't walk FW at all it seems, so that's a really really bad sign right there. I'm bummed out but at the same time, remembering her weight loss story (something like 10 kg in 4 weeks or something insane) I'm not necessarily surprised it was hard to maintain whilst also focusing on other things. I hope this is just a blip and that she evens out, even if she's less muscular than before (which tbh is probably good for her career anyways)

Not SG skinny but remarkable nonetheless since it’s been less than a year she was looking huge. More recent pics on left. Most noticeable in face and arms imo. (Sorry for loading circle on one image couldn’t get it to fully load where I was)

    Hate to burst your bubble but although she has definitely lost some weight, these are shopped to filth based on candids/her at castings for FW. The shape of her leg is totally off its natural shape as well; even if she lost, she wouldn't change the proportion of her shape like that.

    @NewYorkSkinny posted a photo of Pleun Bergmans in the new faces thread... Pleun has lost some weight and toned up quite a bit in the last year or so...

    Definitly! In the before photos she looked kind of boring. This hairstyle and color suits her very well!

    Maggie Greene with Wilhelmina Curve couldn't get signed unless she lost, so she quit modeling until Wilhelmina called and signed her. Photos are taken 2 years apart.

    I’ve never understood the massive gains and how they play it off as their “natural” body size and how they feel “sooooo much healthier”. Like bullshit. The body does not like huge fluxes in weight, either up or down. Just say your agency made you gain bc that’s what the market wants. Unless you just “naturally” binge nonstop all day every day for 2 years :disgusted:

    I think it's possible that she was really not meant to be as skinny as she was in the first pic (which isn't even *that* skinny) but then gained to "plus" measurements, past her natural size, just to book work. It makes me furious that girls are either told to lose 15 lbs or gain 30, because obviously the latter isn't healthy for a lot of people...I have a couple friendly acquaintances who do plus or did in the past, and all of them attest to being told to either gain some weight to stay signed, or have even worn fatsuits on set (?!)

    She's definitely bigger than she was before but I still think she looks pretty damn amazing. Her weight gain is well distributed and appears to be more muscle than fat. But she comes across as an exceptionally nice person in interviews and social media so that might be why she's got a spot in my heart, even if that spot takes up a little more room.

    That thigh crease is so unattractive. I ran across a stupid clickbait "article" awhile ago extolling the sexiness of the "thighbrow" - didn't get it then and don't get it now.

    Lol I think I read that too, something like "Here is the new thigh gap - the thigh brow"
    I do not think that Lais' is that bad compared to the horrific examples I've seen on instagram from time to time

    I've always had a soft spot for her so I'm happy to see her thin again. It definitely suits her whole half-French effortlessly chic vibe a lot better.
