The big lie about slender Emma

Former Miss Ireland Emma Waldron (left), who decamped to New York earlier this year, is continuing to make a name for herself in the modelling industry across the pond.

Her latest coup is being asked to take part in a documentary about plus-size models to be shot by legendary fashion photographer Antoine Verglas.

The New York based snapper has worked with such names as Naomi Campbell and Angelina Jolie (right).

The only problem with this is the bizarre notion that Emma, a gorgeous and - by any standards - slim woman, should be involved in a series about "curvy" models. It's deeply ironic that the country which has given chronic obesity to the world should consider slim and elegant Emma (24) to be a plus-size model.
