Supermodel Who Weighs 105 Pounds Told She's Too Fat for Catwalk

A top Canadian model weighing 105 pounds said she's being shunned from the catwalk for being too fat, The Sun reported Thursday.

Former Vogue cover girl Coco Rocha, 21, is only a size four in clothing, but she said she’s not in demand for shows anymore.

“I’ve been told to lose weight even though I am really skinny," she told the newspaper.

Rocha’s revelation reignited the controversy over stick-thin models who are often copied by vulnerable young girls.

The fashion industry moved away from size zero catwalk queens following the deaths of two anorexic model sisters in Uruguay in 2006 and 2007.

And models considered too skeletal are banned at the current London Fashion Week.

But the trend is returning, with designer Karl Lagerfeld accusing critics of being "fat mummies who sit with bags of potato crisps."

Rocha, who has appeared on a host of magazine covers and has modeled for Chanel, plans to defy it.

"You know what, I've stopped caring. If I want a hamburger, I'm going to have one,” she said.
