Summary Introduced by Mia Freedman, publisher of MamamiaModel agent Chelsea Bonner is on a mission, and it's ambitious. She wants to change the way we think of beauty and body image. While Australian women are getting bigger, the female image presented in the media remains stubbornly the same: tall, thin and a size 8. To promote change, Chelsea set up a modelling agency 15 years ago specialising in larger models. But she's had to battle for acceptance and respect.It's an unlikely crusade for a girl whose parents were the glamour couple of their day. Chelsea's mother Nola was a top model and her father Tony Bonner was a famous actor and heartthrob. In this program Chelsea reveals the pain of feeling like an outsider in the industry she grew up in, and why she's determined to change it
