Ricki-Lee Coulter Wades Into The Jennifer Hawkins Body Image Debate
Former Australian Idol co-host Ricki-Lee Coulter has spoken out about the controversial Marie Claire cover of Jennifer Hawkins. You know the one where Jennifer was not photoshopped, but still looked flawless.
The article said:
While remaining complimentary of Hawkins, Coulter said that there was “a big divide” between the model and the average Australian woman.
“Jen looks beautiful on the cover and I applaud any woman who is appeared to appear in print without airbrushing.
But I love the photo of Bianca Dye that shows her sexy killer curves. I think a lot of women will look at her and think this is what a real woman looks like.”
Coulter also said that while being in the spotlight as a size 14 woman can be challenging, she loves her “hourglass figure”.
“I love my body because it’s what I’ve been given. Being too thin is just as unhealthy as being obese.”
And I would have to agree with her, and for the record Ricki-Lee’s photos for the Woman’s Day shoot were untouched.
