Canadian-born model wins ‘big hip’ lawsuit

Some girls worry over their weight, but when Ananda Marchildon was told that her hips were too big, she took action.
Marchildon, 25, has won a lawsuit against her former modelling agency, world-renowned Elite Model Management, after she was fired for her â€œbigâ€ hips.
She was awarded the remaining $85,000 of her contract, which had been cut short after she earned only $13,000.
Marchildon, who was born in Hull before moving to Holland, was the winner of Hollandâ€™s Next Top Model in 2008 — a win that earned her a contract with Elite.
â€œWhen I won the contract my hips were 94 cm and the contract stated that I had to maintain that size,â€ she said. â€œI wasnâ€™t allowed to get bigger, although it was OK if I got smaller.â€
Marchildon is relieved the ordeal is over.
â€œIt feels good, and apparently Iâ€™m sort of a role model,â€ she said. â€œIâ€™m one of the few that dared to open their mouths and say something about the sizes in the fashion world.â€
The shrinking standards for modelsâ€™ sizes has been a hot topic in the fashion world for years. Itâ€™s slowly being addressed, but skinny girls are still glamourized and the fashion industry has yet to overhaul its standards.
â€œItâ€™s worrying because very young girls are starting as models, and when youâ€™re young youâ€™re more skinny, but when you grow up your body changes,â€ she explained.
