Australian model and the face of Dita Von Teese's lingerie line, 21-year-old Stefania Ferrario, says she is sick of being called a plus-size model and would prefer to drop the label and just be referred to as a model.

Ferrario posted the above image on her Instagram with a message saying that the term "plus-size" isn't empowering, but rather a put-down. She shared the image in response to former Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester's own image about dropping the plus-size label because it is damaging to women and girls' self-esteem.
