The curvy model hit back at the model industry’s hypocrisy and at skinny women who have surgical procedures to look more curvy, like her. She says ‘I wasn’t upset, just amused. I mean every one has the right to an opinion, even if it is the wrong one!’

The voluptuous model told Dailymail that she embraces her curves 360 degrees and she is never ashamed of them”.

She also said “I want to tell young women to accept themselves and to understand that feeling good and being happy is the most powerful thing to fight people’s words and thoughts.”

Torrente said the beauty standards in the pageant world are improving. “Now, a lot of girls that don’t fit the beauty ideal of tall and skinny compete. That’s a really good thing, it means mentality is changing,” ‘I always take words like hers with a smile, saying I feel good in my body, and I love myself for what I am.’

In the midst of the negative feedback, Torrente still received encouraging messages from fans out there who thanked her for her participation in the Miss Italy contest and showing that curvy is beautiful which made them feel better about themselves.

” was surprised and proud. They made me feel good too. And maybe in that sense I am a role model, but firstly I’m just a very normal 22-year-old girl” she told the DailyMail.

‘I want to tell young women to accept themselves and to understand that feeling good and being happy is the most powerful thing to fight people’s words and thoughts.’

Even her highest profile critic, Croatian model Nina Moric, has apologised for saying she had ‘too much flesh’ to share a stage with her skinnier compatriots.
