Kim Kardashian is often celebrated for her generous curves, and she's OK with that, but the reality star wants to make one thing clear: She is not plus-size.
The object of her furor? An US Weekly article, entitled "Forever 21's Plus-Size Line," which reads, "Here's a little faith for fuller-figured fashionistas: On May 1, they can try on a new plus-size line, Faith 21, from hip bargain chain Forever 21 (Kim Kardashian is a fan)."
The article featured two photos of the garments — sized XL to 2XL — alongside a photo of Kardashian.
The curvaceous reality star was more than a little miffed by the clipping and took to her website to vent, in an open letter entitled, "Dear Us Weekly, I Love 'Forever 21', But…"
Here's Kim's letter:
I am a huge fan of Forever 21 and I'm very happy they have expanded their line to include a plus-size range, but I am not in that size category and this article makes it sound like I am! I am a curvy girl and I love my curves, but curvy and plus-sized are two very different things. I work really hard to maintain my curves while staying slim and healthy, so to be classed as a "fuller-figured woman" of extra large proportions is a little offensive.
For the record, I am a size 2, not 2XL.
Do you think Kim was right to be offended? Or was she getting her size 2 frame worked up over nothing?
