Sophie Dahl

One of few plus size models to stomp the runway, Sophie has gone from a size 16 to a size 10 and not everyone is happy about it.  She said:”People definitely said I had betrayed them. Strangers felt very open to comment about it. When one is a projection of a collective thought, it’s very odd.”

Should size acceptance apply when one goes from a size 10 to a 16 as well as when one goes from a size 16 to a 10 ?
