You’re Not Allowed To Say ‘Skinny’ On LaurenConrad.com Anymore
Looking "slim" or "thin" might earn you entry to the season's most exclusive pool parties, but it'll only get you as far as the LaurenConrad.com parking lot.
LC, who most recently produced a Minnie Mouse-themed clothing line, has officially come out swinging against body-shaming and unrealistic expectations of beauty, according to a post she published to her website today, in which she asserts that words like "skinny" are no longer welcome on her virtual property.
"When we’ve talked about getting in shape in the past, words like 'skinny,' 'slim,' and 'thin' have often come up," she wrote. "Starting this month, we’ll be banning any body-shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like 'fit,' 'toned' and 'healthy.'...The word skinny will now be reserved for skinny jeans."
"My editorial team and I had a long talk about it, and we want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale," she concluded.
