IT WAS refreshing to see that a curvy woman won reality show Make Me A Supermodel despite being called 'stocky'.

Jen Hunter, 24, who is a size 12, said she wanted to prove that larger women could be successful models - and she did just that.

It's great to see curvy women being style icons because nine times out of 10, models are usually just skin and bones.

Nowadays people have to be a size 8 to be accepted or considered as 'beautiful' - but that really shouldn't be the case.

One of the finalists, Marianne Berglund, was described as 'sensational' by Select model agency because of her ultra skinny figure.

Well all I can say is they must need their eyes tested, because her swimsuit showed her protruding hips and ribs - which in my opinion is far from attractive or healthy!

Models and celebrities should be setting a healthy and positive image of beauty for teenagers. Youngsters look up to models and celebrities and copy what they look like in a world where image is important.

Skeletal celebs such as Nicole Richie and Amy Winehouse quite frankly need a good hearty meal inside them.

I'm not surprised the trend to achieve a size 4 has been condemned by eating disorder campaigners.

I could never imagine getting down to such a small size because a) I love my food too much and b) there would be nothing left of me.
