In an industry that belongs to skinny women who flaunt their ‘Size 0’ , Myla is one model who has broken those stereotypes. Considered a plus model, she stands out from the rest of her peers of the modelling industry. She was in the midst of a huge controversy while ropped in by Calvin Klein for being the ‘plus size’ model who didn’t fit the criteria to be one. Though the ad campaign by the brand was her biggest break so far, she struggled with finding popular support. Hence Myla has often found herself in a battle to define her territory in the fashion world. She called herself somewhere ‘in-between’. Neither thin enough to fit into regular size modelling nor ‘fat and fabulous’ enough to be a plus size model.
However Myla is of the opinion that she has made a difference in the modelling world by simply being who she is and in a way representing the space every woman ought to have. She considers a personal achievement to receive letters from women who say how glad they are to find models who represent the reality of how most women are. Myla Dalbesio represents the many ways in which the world of fashion can be a harsh and struggle inducing one, yet how with hardwork and determination one can reach one’s destination. In an interview she was quoted saying that the first couple of years in her career were rather slow and she was completely unaware of hair and make up techniques. She was oblivious to the right camera angles and the only thing that got her going was the fact the she was not a quitter. In 2011 she had three performance art shows which is bulding her portfolio as a performance artist as well.
