Two Perth-born beauties are taking the internet by storm as they set out to prove one size doesn’t fit all.
Georgia Gibbs, 21, is a size 6 model widely regarded for her fit and healthy body, while her best friend, Kate Wasley, 22, is a plus-size model at size 16.
The pair posted an image of themselves together on Instagram, only to receive negative comments accusing Gibbs of standing by her plus-size friend to make herself look slimmer.

“The response shocked us both,” Gibbs said.
“People calling Kate overweight, and me too skinny. We realised people aren’t used to seeing two different sized women standing next to each other.”
Gibbs is a former Australia’s Next Top Model contestant and finalist in the 2014 Miss Universe Australia contest, and is currently based between the UK, New York and Sydney, where she first met Wasley.
The two models decided to start an Instagram account called Any Body Co in response to the negativity.
The account has attracted 62,200 followers in just 10 days, with hundreds of women hashtagging #loveAnyBODY and sending the girls messages relating to their story.
“We created Any Body to celebrate our differences, encourage women to quit the comparisons and learn to love themselves,” Gibbs said.
“We hope that one day Kate and I will walk down a runway side by side, not in separate shows.”
