Alexa Chung ‘Quite Often’ Looks in the Mirror and Wishes She Could Gain Ten Pounds

42-37156718

She told Fashionista: "I just get frustrated because, just because I exist in this shape, doesn’t mean that I’m like advocating it and being like, ‘I look great.’ How do you know I’m not looking in the mirror and going ‘I wish I could gain ten pounds?’ Which is actually quite often the case. But if you say that you sound like you’re bragging that you’re naturally thin, and you’re not allowed to do that ... people that are bigger can be on the front covers of magazines being like ‘I’m really happy with my shape.’ If I was to do that, I’d be completely criticised and ridiculed. But why can’t I be happy with how I look?"
