Kim Kardashian on Her Pregnancy Weight Gain: “I’ll definitely be up there”

Kim Kardashian on Her Pregnancy Weight Gain: I'll definitely be up there | pregnant celebrities kim kardashian celebrity quotes

From Radar:

Kim Kardashian has already added a whole lot of swerve to her attention-grabbing curves, just halfway into her pregnancy – and she expects to get huge! The 32-year-old reality star, who is pregnant with her first child with Kanye West and expecting a baby girl in July, admits that she is going to be a large pregnant woman in the April 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan – and has the details.

"I feel good. Nothing's slowed me down," Kim says about her pregnancy so far, adding happily that when it comes to packing on the pregnancy pounds, that she expects "I'll definitely be up there."

Kim, who conceived the "happy surprise" baby in October during her birthday trip to Italy with West and is still married to NBA star Kris Humphries, believes that the timing of her pregnancy couldn't be better.

"I've always said that I wanted kids, but I don't think I ever would have been ready until now."

One thing Kim isn't looking forward to when it comes to the final months of her pregnancy, is giving up her beloved sky-high heels.

"I'm trying to prep myself for when I'm extremely pregnant, so I wore a wedge sneaker," she explains. "I didn't feel it; I'm not gonna lie. I can't. But I'm trying."

Crystal Renn Wants Designers to Change Sample Sizes to an 8 Instead of a 2

Crystal Renn Wants Designers to Change Sample Sizes to an 8 Instead of a 2 | crystal renn beauty body image

Crystal Renn, the former plus-size model who wrote a book that documented her weight journey as a model from a size 0 to a size 14 recently opened to the press about body image in the fashion world and suggested the designers to change same sizes from 2 to an 8 – here’s the full story from Radar:

Each of the models present shared compelling personal stories about their struggles with weight and body image in the modeling industry. Amy Lemons said that when her body started changing at 17, her agent recommended eating just one rice cake a day, and if that didn't work, cutting back to only half of one. Katherine Schuette, who also studied nutrition, stopped eating even though she knew the dangers. "I knew down to the chemistry what was happening to my body when I tried to get to that size [0]," she shared.

It was Crystal Renn, who has publicly shared her struggles with eating disorders in her book Hungry, who spoke most passionately about the subject. After being signed by a model scout who told her to lose ten inches from her waist and advised her to look to Vogue for standards of what she should look like, Renn entered into years of obsessive dieting and exercise to get down to a frightening 95 lbs. "What I found," Renn said of that time, "is that I felt nothing except hatred for myself."

And the problem isn't just with model agents; Ashley Mears says the problem lies much more in the editorial side of the industry. Chris Gay agreed, expressing frustration with industry standards set by designers and editors that he deemed ridiculous. "They're not standards a woman can keep through her life or her career," May said. "You're replacing good models with new models because of unrealistic standards…"

Renn's suggestion, which seems almost painfully obvious in its simplicity, is for designers to change the sample size to a size 8. She argues this could accommodate bodies between sizes 6 and 10, or tailored down to a size 0 if the designer wanted to hire a girl that thin. Renn posited that some designers feel pressured to keep their sample sizes small because that's what industry leaders are doing–she of course made an exception for close friend Zac Posen.

"There are some people who lead," Renn said of the designer's attempts to diversify his runway, "and Zac Posen is one of those people."

What do you think of Crystal’s thoughts?
