Quotable: Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa Says Waifs Are So Over

“Calvin Klein originally started the whole waif moment and not much has been done since then … Lara was our exclusive four years ago. We’ve never had someone who really represented our houses and all our licensees in the same way. She is very current, very beautiful and very womanly. It’s time for that persona and for that body. She’s divine, gorgeous and we will support her in that.”

It’s good to see that even Calvin Klein, the brand that hired a nearly-naked, teenage Kate Moss to usher in the era of the waif, is broadening its approach in terms of weight. Lara Stone’s “curvy” physique is still totally slim, but she’s at least got the sort of body type that every day women are more likely to relate to — you know, not emaciated. [Vogue UK]
