When Tara Lynn graced the cover of ‘ELLE’ France back in 2012, it was not only a breakthrough moment for the model herself, but the striking imagery also got the industry talking about body inclusivity. While the topic comes up quite frequently in conversations about fashion today, size diversity was barely addressed or promoted just a decade ago. With an increasing number of brands putting more emphasis on expanding their size offering, and body positivity advocates spreading messages of acceptance and self-love on social media, the industry is finally heading towards the right direction, but some hurdles still exist even for successful models like Lynn.

In this Hypebae interview, Lynn and other IMG Models signees Chloé Véro, Solange van Doorn and Yvonne Simone speak candidly about the difference between true diversity and tokenism and whether they feel the term “plus-size” is outdated.
