“Hide Her Legs, So Fat, Ugly!” – Dek Bentuk Betis, Daphne Iking Dedah Pernah Kena Keji!

Kejelitaannya mengagumkan ramai yang melihat, namun Daphne Iking tetap merasakan diri punya kekurangan.

Dilahirkan dalam bangsa Kadazan Dusun, hos Daphne Iking mengakui betis yang besar adalah ‘signature’ keturunan tersebut.

Apa yang menyedihkan, dia pernah menjadi bahan kutukan sewaktu sesi penggambaran dimana jurugambar mengarahkan jurugaya agar menyembunyikan betis Daphne kerana kelihatan gemuk dan hodoh.

I was never insecure about my huge Kadazandusun botung (calves) until I did a photo shoot many years ago where the photographer told the stylist (in Chinese), “hide her legs.

“So fat! Ugly!”. I understood enough mandarin to know what he was saying and before the stylist could do anything, I had shifted my legs , trying to hide it.

“The shoot turned out horrible – not just in pictures, but my ego and self-esteem was badly bruised too and it this led me to wear long skirts and trousers for the longest time,” luahnya.

Namun, tidak membiarkan insiden itu melemahkan semangatnya. Dilihat daripada sudut positif, kaki inilah yang membawanya berjalan, berlari dan mampu memakai kasut.

“Today I went for a shoot and was listening to stories of war and famine.

“These botungs may not be supermodel friendly, but I am able to stand, walk and run half marathons. I am healthy. I am strong. And I can wear shoes. Something I took for granted.”

Turut berkongsi kisah yang sama, netizen meluahkan kekecewaan apabila sering dijadikan bahan ketawa.

Kecantikan bukan sekadar dilihat daripada luaran. Betul tak?
