CNN: Let's talk about the actual photo shoot. Were you nervous?
Baker: I had never met the model until that day. I credit the majority of this to the photographer, Liora, because she really made it come to life.
He was the most genuine, down-to-earth person. It was so much fun.
In the beginning, I was nervous, but mostly because I had never modeled with other people. I have done solo fashion modeling, but never with another person and never in a sexual manner -- so it was a really interesting experiment.
CNN: Have you heard from Jeffries or Abercrombie & Fitch?
Baker: No, I didn't write this letter technically for them. I like to not invest a lot of my time in people who are dedicated to misunderstanding me. What I wanted to do is reach women who look and feel like me. We never see this pairing; we never see a fat woman in a positive light. I want to empower the individual woman.
When Mike Jeffries is gone, there's going to be another company. It's not about the extra-large shirts at Abercrombie; it's about teaching the world that everybody is equal in value.
