Katie Willcox on the modeling industry, body image and media manipulation

Olympic & Bundy (FOX 11 Los Angeles)

Katie Willcox has been working as a professional model for more than 15 years and went on to start her own agency, called Natural Model Management.

She is the author of "Healthy Is the New Skinny: Your Guide to Self-Love in a 'Picture Perfect' World," and responsible for the website and online movement of the same name.

Katie also holds body-positive workshops and retreats for girls and adult women -- aiming to educate others about media manipulation and to challenge the beauty ideal implemented by the media.

She joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about the modeling industry itself, as she began working as a plus-size model in high school, the false advertising we face as consumers, social media in 2018, raising a daughter of her own and much more.
