Nina Agdal om usunde spisevaner og 'body shaming' i modebranchen

Den 25-årige danske model deler et ærligt skriv på Instagram, hvor hun belyser de mindre glamourøse sider af livet som model

På danske Nina Agdals Instagram-profil danner de fleste opslag et billede af et misundelsesværdigt modelliv med eksotiske rejser, fotoskydninger og ture ned ad den røde løber. Men ét opslag skiller sig ud fra mængden.

I fredags delte Agdal et billede ledsaget af et langt skriv, hvor hun opridser de mindre glamourøse sider af modebranchen. Uden at nævne navne fortæller den 25-årige model om at blive droppet før en lovet forsideskydning, fordi hun ifølge det unavngivne magasin “ikke passede til deres marked” og ikke passer prøvestørrelser, hvilket ifølge Agdal ikke er sandt. 

Derudover fortæller Nina Agdal ærligt om sine problemer med et negativt syn på sin krop. Hun skriver blandt andet, at hun startede som en “16-årig pige med usunde og utilstrækkelige spisevaner,” og tilføjer, at hun først nyligt har fundet fred med sit udseende og det faktum, at hun ikke har en “gennemsnitlig modelkrop”.

Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry. A few months ago, I agreed to shoot with a creative team I believed in and was excited to collaborate with. When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it “did not reflect well on my talent” and “did not fit their market,” the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false. If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body - I have an athletic build and healthy curves. After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before. Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6. I am not built as a runway model and have never been stick thin. Now more than ever, I embrace my curves and work diligently in the gym to stay strong and most of all, sane. I am proud to say that my body has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits. So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size. I decided to release an image to draw awareness and support of an issue that's bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies. Let's find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down. #bodyshaming #bodyimage #selfimage #dietculture #mybodymybusiness
