Miss England banned from catwalk for being too bigNovember 29th, 2008 - 1:53 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 29 (ANI): The winner of Miss England has been shunned by modelling agencies for being too fat.
The curvy Laura Coleman started her career as a skinny size eight model.
However, opting for a healthier figure, is said to have ruined her catwalk and magazine career.
But the 22-year-old blonde, who has dated cricket star Stuart Broad, says that she is comfortable with herself.
Im a size 10 to 12, The Sun quoted her as saying.
I really think the curvy girl should be promoted more as a positive image in the media. But the modelling agencies seemed to have a problem with me when I wasnt skinny any more. It puts you in a different type of modelling.
But I think as long as people are comfortable with themselves thats all that matters.
And Im just proving that I am comfortable with myself as opposed to feeling under pressure to be a size zero, she added.
Meanwhile, Laura is set to go next month to Miss World final in South Africa. (ANI)
