Jaime King Says It's Unfair to Ban Size Zero Models

Jaime King poses for photos while attending the Prabal Gurung fashion show during New York Fashion Week on Sunday (September 10) in New York City.

Also in attendance at the show was fashion influencer Olivia Palermo.

Jaime spoke to New York Post over the weekend and responded to France’s ban on models who are smaller than a French size 34, which translates to a size 0 or 2 in the U.S.

“I think it would be radically unfair to say if you’re a size zero, then you can’t work, just like it’s unfair to say that if you’re a size 16, you can’t work,” Jaime said.

“I’m naturally really thin, and sometimes it’s really hard for me to gain weight,” she added. “When people on Instagram say, ‘Go eat a hamburger,’ I’m like, ‘Wow, they’re body-shaming me for the way that I look.’”

“[When] I was diagnosed with endometriosis, I gained 40 pounds because my hormones were so crazy,” she said. “And it was like, ‘Oh, [producers] want to offer you this role, but they want to know why you got fat.’ I realized being shamed for gaining weight or being too thin felt the same.”

    What an idiot! Nobody says u couldn’t be size 0 if you want knock urself out but u can’t seriously defend an industry promoting thinness and unattainable beauty ideals. Being overly thin is equal to obesity they are both unhealthy
    This ban is one of the best decision that’s made in fashion ind. for along time. other than that they decide not hire models younger than 16 yo to wear adult clothes on catwalk and shoots. and new rules such as banning the serving of alcohol to models under 18 and ensuring they have a guardian or chaperone present at all times while working. I support that 100% .
