Playing Critics Slam Victoria Beckham's NYFW Show for Models Who Are 'Too Skinny'

Victoria Beckham is facing heat over the models used in her New York Fashion Week show.

"This fall the models were very thin," plus-size model Emme told ET. "There were a few that distracted you, and it's shocking. Seeing bones protruding, you start worrying about the individual wearing your clothes. That's a missed opportunity for the designer."

Critics agreed when it came to Beckham's show which they called "skeletal chic." The Daily Mail's Piers Morgan wrote, "Stop with the miserable skinny models."

"Victoria designs for women that look like her, and she should," Emme said. "However, try and choose models that are healthier." editor Amy Odell says that the problem doesn't just lie with Beckham.

"I think that it would be unfair to single out any one designer for models being allegedly too thin," she told ET. "That's the look of a runway model and they need to be slim in order to fit into these samples, and every designer uses the same sample size, which is a very small item of clothing."

Despite the controversy, New York's Fashion Week has evolved. Designers like Zac Posen and Vera Wang proudly embrace curves.

"I just love women with bodies," Posen told ET. "I think they're beautiful. It's inspiring."

"It's nice to see runway fantasy translate into real women, who are of course beautiful and glamorous and young."
