In today's fashion world, plus-size models are winning the ramps with their curvy bodies and enigmatic attitude. More and more models that don't fit the conventional standards are stepping in the industry and are gaining recognition for their talent and NOT their bodies. But despite all that, some stigmas still remain.
We have always considered beauty means having a wonderful figure, slim waist, and being tall. But how are these standards for beauty set so rigidly? Why can't we consider anything other than this as beautiful? That's what the new South Korean animation movie teaches us.
'Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs' is being released by Locus Creative Studios and it has recently put up billboards across the United States. The voice over will be done by Chloe Grace Moretz in this movie. Ads for the movie have been released and it met with a lot of outrage from the public about body-shaming. Some obviously chose to speak against the subject, but some of them decided to make their voice heard on Twitter and were all for the plus-size women taking the crown.
Let's find out.
Tess Holliday is actually a plus-sized model and she was the one who started the fire. She spoke against the topic of body shaming and how young girls are told to be pretty and thin. Fat isn't considered beautiful and many women are being made fun of because of their weight.
The story targets our morals in which seven handsome Princes get cursed and are turned into seven ugly dwarfs for being disrespectful to other humans. They have to complete a task of getting a kiss from the most beautiful girl in the town to become handsome Princes again.
The most beautiful girl in the town actually gets heavier and shorter each time she removes her red shoes. Now that gives a hit to our beauty standards.

Tess Holliday wasn't the only one who saw the billboard. Everyone started talking about body shaming and misogyny after taking a look.
Instead of calling a girl ugly just because she's short and overweight, try to make sense out of yourselves first.
Chloe states that she's not the one who reviewed the ads initially, but she will be going through all of the marketing acts in the future.
