London Fashion Week featured a new entrant in the form of David Hasselhoff’s daughter. Hayley Hasselhoff is a plus size model and exceptionally beautiful. The blonde bombshell has the proportions of a curvaceous Marilyn Monroe-like goddess.
Her father, who appeared in his times in shows such as Knight Rider and Baywatch, is very proud of his talented little girl. Only difference is, she is a big girl now! While such plus size shows are not part of the mainstream, they are fast becoming assimilated into the general business of everyday affairs.
Hayley had quite a few words to say about the issue. She does not agree that it is in any way demeaning to display a slightly overweight body. Rather it shows beauty and grace and the willingness to accept oneself. All the coat hangers that get paraded on fashion show catwalks in Paris and Milan are not realistic.
One ought to be comfortable with the body one was born in for that is the natural form for the individual who possesses it. David Hasselhoff tried to make it to the event, where his daughter swayed before the crowd in a black dress and high heels, yet couldn’t due to certain last minute commitments.
Hayley doesn’t mind in the least and says she loves her dad either way. Most men nowadays prefer a return to reality where women were more voluptuous. The eras of stick figure models such as Twiggy and Kate Moss are over.
Such unrealistically thin role models breed eating disorders and other diet industry diseases among those who look at them in the fashion magazines. A new normality where women and men make peace with their bodies and follow healthy nutritious diets is what is at stake here.
