Chamada para o desfile da coleção Cruise da Louis Vuitton no Japão, a modelo dinamarquesa Ulrikke Hoyer relatou em suas redes sociais que foi impedida de desfilar por estar “muito grande”.
Em relato publicado no Instagram e no Facebook na manhã desta quinta-feira (18), a modelo afirma que Alexia Cheval, assistente de casting da grife francesa, disse durante a prova final já em Tóquio que Ulrikke estava com barriga e rosto inchados e que deveria somente tomar água pelas próximas 24 horas.
I just returned from Tokyo/Japan, where Louis Vuitton held a beautiful cruise show in Kyoto, I just never made it to Kyoto cause I was canceled for the show due to being ‘too big’. (I’m a size 34-36) Ashley Brokaw’s caster Alexia had said that there had been some problems during the fitting. According to her I had “a very bloated stomach”, “bloated face”, and urged me to starve myself with this statement “Ulrikke needs to drink only water for the next 24 hours”. I was shocked when I heard it. I woke up at 2am and was extremely hungry. The breakfast started at 6:30am – I had the absolute minimum. I was afraid to meet Alexia so my luck she didn’t arrive until 8am, when my plate was taken off the table. She said good morning to me and the other girls and looked at me, then down on my non-existent plate and up at me again. She was checking if I had been eating food. At 7pm my mother agent from Denmark called my to tell the sad news that Louis Vuitton had chosen to cancel me from the show without the refitting and that I was going to be sent back home. Not only did I have a belly, my face was puffy now also my back was a problem. I am glad I’m 20 years old with an elite sports background and not a 15 year old girl, who are new to this and unsure about herself, because I have no doubt that I would then have ended up very sick and scarred long into my adult life.

“Fiquei chocada quando ouvi. Acordei às 2h da madrugada faminta e comi o mínimo no café, pois estava com medo de encontrar Alexia. (...) Ela checou se eu havia comido. Às 19h, me ligaram da minha agência, da Dinamarca, dizendo que a marca havia cancelado minha participação e que eu iria para casa”, contou a modelo.
“Sou feliz por ter 20 anos e ser atleta de elite e não uma menina de 15 anos, que são novas e inseguras sobre elas mesmas”, conclui. A marca e a assistente não se pronunciaram sobre o caso.
