I AM NOT AN ANGEL. I AM NOT A MODEL. I AM JUST BEING MYSELF …
Being natural was never more “fashionable” as last year! We had to deal with dozens of TV shows that were telling us to trust ourselves and feel beautiful no matter the age, the kilograms or cellulite. We have seen advertising campaigns with plus size models and covers and covers where the pattern 90-60-90 was forgotten. Is this the beginning of the end of the supermodels era?
7 PLUS-SIZE MODELS THAT CHANGED THE TREND
Ashley Graham – fist model plus-size that appeared in the swimsuit edition of 2016 Sports Illustrated. She has her own lingerie line and does motivational speeches at Ted Talks.
Candice Huffine – she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italy 2011. She has done editorials for Harper´s BAZAAR and appeared in the Pirelli calendar in 2015.
Tess Holiday – at the beginning of 2015 she became the fist model “size 22” which got hired by a professional models agency. She started the campaign “effyourbeautystandards on Instagram and has more than 1 million followers.
Marquita Pring – she posed for Vogue Italy and Jean Paul Gaultier. She was one of the models #ImNoAngel.
Erica Jean Schenk – in August 2015 she appeared on the cover of Women´s Running, fist plus-size model cover on such magazine.
Jennie Runk – appeared in Vogue and Glamour editions. She posed in swimsuit in 2013 for the H&M campaign.
Facts: The campaign #ImNoModel was promoted by Lane Bryant and had a huge exit. Vogue USA was criticised for not involving in this campaign.
So it doesn’t matter if you are thin or thick, important is to love ourselves and believe in ourselves. And maybe the sales of Barbie dolls will rise again, after three years of decline, if the thin posh Barbie will became a little bit more plus-sized.
I am ending my post with this photo from Glamour magazine. 7 confident and beautiful women, no matter hair colour type or skin colour … I want to see more editions like this.
Hope you enjoy this post.
