Chrissy Teigen. What is there to say? When the woman is right — which is damn near always! — the woman is right.
Chrissy spoke to E! News about inclusion in modelling, and the need for more representation.
‘I want it to be a normal thing to be able to see Asian models, and I think Asian models are really underrepresented in the industry, especially on the runways or in magazines.’ She added, ‘I personally am not offended by cultural appropriation of any sort because I feel like it does pay homage, but at the same time there are a lot of beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Asian women that could do the same thing.’
She didn’t stop there — adding that the inclusion should extend to film.
‘I think it’s really important to start embracing people … seeing them in roles that are not necessarily “That Asian Girl” or “That Asian Boy”… In movies you’re like, “Oh, this Asian girl is dating this white guy” — I want that to be normal.’
Yes! Media should reflect the world we see around us!
