Taylor Rhoden Rejected From Modeling Because Of Her Height & Curves, Makes It by Kolababe: 4:16pm On Nov 20, 2017
23-year-old Taylor Rhoden, a former student nurse from Los Angeles who was told she was 'too tall' and 'too curvy' to ever become a model in the fashion industry, has finally won a contract with a lingerie brand, Curvy Kate.

Curvy Kate ran an open casting call to pick its next model, and Taylor, who gave up nursing and moved to LA to pursue her modeling dreams, qualified into the modeling competition, dubbed 'Star In A Bra'.

After the live auditions, Taylor was voted by the public as the next lingerie model out of almost 1,000 competitors.

According to reports, Taylor, a size 12 who had been repeatedly told she would never be a model because of her body also earned a modeling contract with the esteemed True Model Management agency, based in New York.

Speaking after becoming the new face of underwear label Curvy Kate, Taylor said: I've been turned away from many agencies due to my height. I've always been told that I'm "too tall".

Although I thought my height and look was beautiful and unique, I felt like the agencies never saw that,' Taylor said.

'It's because of this that I entered Star in a Bra, in the wider modelling industry I am yet to see women that look like me, not only am I tall, I'm also plus size and I'm black, African-American, so I would really like to see someone that resembles me for once in the spotlight.'

At first, Taylor said she 'literally could not believe' she had won the competition. 'It felt so surreal because I've been working so hard at turning my modelling dreams into my reality for so long and finally everything was coming to fruition,' she said.

'Through winning I'm hoping to bring a new look to Curvy Kate. I am not the traditional curve model, and I think that's always a plus. I'm hoping that by adding me to the family, a different target population of women will also feel included: women of color and taller women

'This is an opportunity for me to inspire women all over the world to love the skin they're in.'

These are lines from a song. We all have our imperfections. I think these companies have come to realise this and they're toning down on the over perfect images they portray.

But seriously her assz is not smooth , her assz is like sandpaper

Her posture is not appealing

Her skin tone is very average

Her shape? Even though she's average shaped and tall, she not even sexy..

She is just ordinary.

They didn't even use enough concealer on her body. Lol

Mehn, that product no go sell and no be curse, Na fact.



But Poco, seriously to sell lingerie? There shouldn't be trace of stretch marks or even rough skin. It's all a marketing strategy. The skin is meant to be flawless with a striking facial feature and feline pose.

That's the way to catch attention of the class of people who are obsessed with lingerie and looking sexy in it.

It's a marketing strategy. So I can't blame them.

That's why Kim k and Kendall cosmetics sell so much. Cause they look perfect, super sexy posing with their brands.

Well, I just noticed that trend in some modelling shoots. They don't go for over skinny girls again too...so, you'll be seeing lots of fat girls soon cheesy

It's a lingerie line, not cosmetics.
Shouldn't the importance be the fitting and other things?
They can always airbrush the pictures and give you what you want.

Poco, u are funny

I see fat girls posing with lingeries on mags.
Immediately I see them, I flip page..

Even though am not slim lol. cheesy


But curvy in the right places, fat girls posing does not appeal to my eyes at all.

The companies will keep using the slim or sexy girls..
Cos that's what attracts and sells.

When sales run down, person no go tell them

They go switch back to slim and sexy cheesy

So true they are a turn off..

More especially when millions of dollars is meant to be made on a products..

Non stretch marks must be seen.

The body must be sexily attracted, oily, smooth and chocolatey wink

I know Kim is not born with a perfect skin and spends alot concealing and oiling her scars , cellulite and rough edges.

But with this business? The watch code is make believe, perfection and attraction.

She has to look perfect, for sales to happen.

My dear to boom in business? It's not always black and white.

Things are always covered up to make the brand look perfect proof.
