After being dropped by her ex-modelling agency for being "too big" at a US size 2-4, Charli wrote an open letter to them on Facebook in October 2015 that went viral. Since then, she has been an advocate for body positivity and diversity within fashion. She continues to model in New York, but on her own terms - refusing to lose weight and succumbing to industry pressures, encouraging others to be the best version of themselves.
She continues to advocate for body positivity through special projects, her writing for fashion and beauty publications worldwide, and through her social media channels and blog.
