While we put the finishing touches on our "Team Ali" t-shirts, here's some more news about our favorite young model: She'll appear on The Today Show in June, supposedly with Teen Vogue's Amy Astley, to discuss body image and fashion. The segment will focus on an upcoming Teen Vogue shoot with the Texas model, where she discusses her experiences in Paris and how they varied when she went from 100 lbs to 105 lbs. Some of our friends in the industry pointed out that several other girls were also excluded from many runway shows because of their size, but Ali is the only one who's been vocal about it. It's a tricky issue, especially since the majority of Americans have health issues because of obesity, not because of skinny models. And yet, the standards set by the fashion industry have huge ramifications on the rest of pop culture, and therefore the rest of youth culture. Thankfully, Ali seems smart enough to discuss the whole thing gracefully. Good luck, babe.
