The Colombian pageant queen wrote: “I am going to tell you what happened to me a year and a half after ending my reign as Miss Universe.
“I was looking at opportunities in the United States and had been hired by a fashion agency in Miami which later wanted to add me to its branch in New York.
“Happily, I signed with the agency. I kept on travelling and working. I felt healthy and happy with my body. Three months later I went back to the agency.
“Apparently, I had gained one kilogramme. In the meeting, I was told that they were not considering me as a catwalk editorial fashion model, that I was not among the ‘thin’ ones, and that I would be categorised as a plus-size model.”
Vega added: “It was a real wow moment!”
