I think she is actually really cool and edgy. Also Vogue says she is a former tennis pro.

These days, Høyer’s focus may be on the runways rather than the courts, but the model has found that her history as an athlete informs her approach. “Although they are two very different platforms, there are so many things I have learned through tennis that I can pass on in any other work-related situation,” says Høyer. “I learned that to achieve my goals, you need to work hard and be dedicated.” For Høyer, modeling and tennis really aren’t all that different; both require tenacity and a bit of healthy competition. “I often describe the fashion industry, and modeling, as an elite sport. It is a competitive world where it’s about being the most-sought-after model,” says Høyer.

I thought she looked so great in this coat, but didn't know how pretty her figure was underneath. Just goes to show, even covered up, skinny still rules!

I'm not in the fashion industry but something tells me calling out a specific casting agent in a public forum is kind of a career killer. I feel like anyone getting into high fashion has to be aware of the requirements.

Well, in the original post, she specifically said that even if this gig was "her last," it was worth it. To be honest, the entire story is quite surprising to me; if those are recent pics, and her measurements were what she said they were, it is a bit interesting that they said she was "too big." My issue with it isn't that she got dropped, but rather, that models like her (there are other models bigger than her that still were in the show??) are dropped when completely out of place "models" like the hadids, haley baldwin, etc. etc. still book shows and have no scrutiny or standards set for them. Seems like a story that is kind of lacking some context

I'm really disappointed by the whole "this model was told she was too fat!" narrative. While I understand that Ulrikke must be genuinely upset, the fact that she's going so public with her story seems purely aimed at generating outrage and attention, like a lot of girls before her. She's not going to change any practices in modeling; she's just alienating herself further from the truly dedicated people in the industry.

I imagine a lot of average-sized people will feel sympathy reading all these cases about models being dropped for being too fat... but to me, it just feels kind of like a lot of whining. Every career has its brutal unfairnesses, and models who don't have the right body specifications are just like athletes who aren't fast enough or musicians who don't play well enough. Why should you get to complain about not being good enough for the standards in your chosen field?

I feel this, but as @espressoenthusiast said, this is kind of surprising given her measurements and the other types of bodies we regularly see in shows nowadays... is it whining, or whistleblowing? I don't know. I think models deserve some standard of job security. Actors have unions, after all.

The casting director for the LV show responded to her statements in a fashion biz publication:

Now, both Brokaw and Hoyer have spoken exclusively to BoF to clarify the situation. “Honestly, I think that it’s a lot of misunderstanding,” says Brokaw. “We were told before she came for her fitting that she was a 92cm hip. That was fine for everybody and we told the atelier to make whatever we needed to make for her. We said that we’d make her a look and that we want her in the show. She came to Paris, we made a fur coat to her measurements to her body and we confirmed her for the show. Two weeks later, in Tokyo, for whatever reason she came in for her fitting and the coat didn’t fit properly. Once we were in Tokyo we were very limited by what we could do. We didn’t have the atelier to remake anything and we didn’t have a lot of other options to try on her, although we did try some other things on her and nothing quite worked. So it was a situation that was devastating all round.”​

You know, I usually hate whiny wannabe models but she doesn't belong in this category. She has legit model measurements and I think she stood up for herself and had the guts to do that, she's not an instagram model who can sell fit tea if she doesn't get modeling gigs anymore, she's risking her own career so she probably felt, in her heart, that this was the right thing to do. I am not an insider or anything but I do think that the treatment some models get is truly awful and no one ever speaks about this

At first Ali Michael was an example of what happens to models who whine and complain and backstab. But Ali did it before social media was big and she also had a minor comeback due to social media. Some of these girls are so dumb they think they can make up for being blacklisted by going the outrage porn route, getting followers etc.

Your job is to fit the clothes, not the other way around. Yes they fit them to you but only within a range and I'm not an expert on that end of things but 99% of the time it is expected they need to be pinned / taken in not let out bc that's more work. 92 is large by HF standards but not undoable - if the house really loved her.

But let's be honest, the issue is she was bigger than 92 when she got to the fitting, probably a lot bigger. Even top girls don't get away with showing up for a job (and DEFINITELY not a LV show) above her measurements. They will pull you from the show. It isn't uncommon and strikes fear in the heart of models and bookers. She is acting like she's the first girl pulled from a show for being over her numbers. :rolleyes:

According to her I had “a very bloated stomach”, “bloated face”
Then she did.

“Ulrikke needs to drink only water for the next 24 hours”
So what? Like that would kill her? It was hopeless at that point anyway but at least the agent was trying to make it work. They probably didn't finally decide to drop her until seeing the stubborn woe-is-me attitude and continued "appetite"... :nopity:

^ Since everyone wants to get into modeling, I hope young girls who read this story can actually get behind what it really mean to be a model and it's not for everyone.

It's not the talented tall, lanky girls with visible cheek bones that are the problem. It's the nepotism kids who know that daddy will be able to buy them a place and they'll never have to face this situation because they're not overly obese. :D

Yeah but even if you're tall and thin and model worthy like this girl, you need thick skin.

Fernanda Ly's quote is pretty haunting/raw, definitely the best part of that article "The fashion industry is fickle and only luck is on your side, or perhaps it is not. The determining factors of your success are predisposed before you are even born; your height, body type, facial structure, etc. It’s all a genetics game before you can even call yourself a ‘model’. After that, only luck comes into play whether your look is ‘in’ and you receive work. Success arrives exponentially as a model, however once your time is up, you are thrown away like used goods as another model comes to take your place instantly. There are models who are trapped in very long, slave-like contract periods with very little to show of it. I personally know of many who receive almost no money after tax, agency commission, and conversion rates: These girls were fed dreams that instead became nightmares as agency debt piled up; who else is the pay for constant travel, accommodation, food, language classes, comp cards building up, but the model? These girls that I know of have, not surprisingly, disappeared from the industry only to return to their remote village without their promised success."
