Still Going: Fat & Fast

We're basically over the size zero debate - models will always be skinny. But absolutely no one's over Mark Fast's runway statement from last Friday.

We're basically over the size zero debate - models will always be skinny. But absolutely no one's over Mark Fast's runway statement from last Friday. Why? Because it wasn't just the audience made uncomfortable by the big girls, but also the team behind the show. One staff member quit over Fast's use of plus size models and another, the show's stylist, was so rude to the girls that they were forced to fire her. So instead, stylist Daniela Agnelli, who usually works for The Telegraph, stepped in to save the day, and though there've been complaints about the nude thongs cutting into the girls' skin and ruining the lines of the clothes, overall, it was a success. We love fashion, and thus it follows we love a scandal, but we can't help but be disgusted over this whole thing. For two people from a small team to be too embarrassed to have their name attached to a few gorgeous plus sized models is awful. If there's anything to bitch about it's that Fast only used three plus size girls and not more. --A LONDON FASHIONISTA
