Revolve Clothing Bans Skinny Model

The City fans may remember model Ali Crandell’s weight being criticized by PR bigshot Kelly Cutrone on MTV’s reality TV show, but now shoppers on Revolve Clothing’s website have voiced criticisms and concerns for themselves. In response to an image of the pint sized 23 year old modeling a BCBGMAXAZRIA leather dress one shopper writes ‘The model is disgusting!’ while another posts ‘Feed Me’.

Revolve addressed the feedback with the following post:

 

Hi everyone,Thank you for your concern. We are absolutely aware of the feedback and responses to our model’s weight and it has concerned us as well. We are working closely with both the model and her agent to get her to a healthier size. She won’t be appearing in any of our new product batches or in any of our fashion editorial photos moving forward until the issue is adequately addressed.We appreciate and respect input from our customers and visitors and hope that you find our responses satisfying. We have been attempting to respect the privacy of the model in question while dealing with the issue on our end. We hope you understand.Sincerely,The REVOLVE Team

It’s good to see that both consumers and retailers are concerned and willing to openly acknowledge weight issues – a positive step towards a healthier industry.
