Top Fashion Model Gemma Ward has had it — she has called it quits after years of harrassment about her weight Perhaps the final straw was being called a “Roll Model” by the Sunday Telegraph, read more here (first person to find the roll wins!)
It’s called PUBERTY people.
Celebrating her 22nd birthday in New York last week, Ward was photographed alongside close friend and Sports Illustrated swimwear model, Jessica Gomes. Ward, who was romantically linked to Heath Ledger, disappeared from the fashion industry after his death in January 2008, The Sunday Telegraph reports.
Last week, she was snapped wearing a leopard-print jacket, shorts and biker boots – looking the very picture of a healthy young woman (above). But the photographs were quickly posted by international fashion blogger Bryan Boy. Reader comments varied from overwhelming support to vicious attacks on her new real shape, with the blogger boy himself saying she could now give “Crystal Renn a run for her money.”
A spokeswoman for modelling agency, Viviens said Ward, who is based in New York, had no immediate plans to return to the industry.
“Gemma hasn’t committed to returning to modelling at any time soon”, she said, adding Ward had the agency’s full support.
