With her multi-ethnic and exotic looks, she appeals across the spectrum.

At 6’ tall Hannah measures 38DD-34-47(in) but her measurement don’t tell the whole story. To say that she is curvaceous is somewhat of an understatement. It’s more like she is redefining curvy.

She has represented top brands in the U.S, Canada, and throughout Europe. Recently Justine and several other models were featured in a campaign by Lane Bryant labeled #ImNoAngel. It was in response to Victoria’s Secret’s “The Perfect Body” ads. The #ImNoAngel campaign featured Lane Bryant’s Cacique plus size lingerie collection.

One goal of the campaign is to help re-define the concept that beauty comes in only one size.  It appears to be working as Victoria’s Secret changed its’ campaign to “A Body for Every Body”. More importantly however the #ImNoAngel campaign is helping redefine the public’s perception of beauty and helps women and girls feel comfortable and confident in their looks.

Tess Holliday – Picture of the Week – 6/1/2015

Curvy Plus Size Model Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday, aka Tess Munster, covers the June 1, 2015 issue of People Magazine in its Body Issue. Although Holliday has been making big waves in the fashion industry lately, not everyone is happy about it. Before we get into that, let’s recount some of her recent accomplishments.  At 5’5? and 280 lbs., she made news by becoming the first size 22 model to be signed by a major modeling agency, MiLK Model Management. She was interviewed by Vogue Italia. She was featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine. A while back Holliday created the hashtag effyourbeautystandards which has been used across social media and has been instrumental in her meteoric rise to international fame.

Reports from Business Insider have it that an unnamed source who is inside the industry has been quoted as saying that in their opinion, Holliday would receive little work after all the hoopla dies down from recent events. Tess Holliday’s recent celebrity has reignited a familiar chorus in the seemingly never ending battle between those deem “body positive issues trump all” and those who think that at some point health and obesity concerns must be addressed. Social media is ablaze with comments from the major opinion camps and all points between. Tess has received over 900,000 fans on Facebook and over 700,000 followers on Instagram.

It’s hard to predict the outcome but now it’s probably safe to say that most sides have been heard and the public will decide, but it may take a while.

Lane Bryant’s ImNoAngel Campaign

ImNoAngel …Lane Bryant vs. Victoria’s Secret  … May All Women Win!

#ImNoAngel - Lane Bryant's new campaign

 

Lane Bryant has launched a new multi-purpose campaign featuring several models who are diverse in size and ethnicity.  The campaign, dubbed #ImNoAngel is, in part, a response to Victoria Secret’s “Perfect Body” campaign which features the typical VS models, but certainly none have “perfect bodies”. The main reason for the campaign is to promote their popular and stylish Cacique lingerie brand. A by-product of #ImNoAngel has been to re-ignite the discussion about beauty, curves, body type, and how women feel about their bodies and how they should feel about their bodies.

The campaign features models Justine LeGault, Victoria Lee, Ashley Graham, Marquita Pring, Elly Mayday, and Candice Huffine.

Beautiful plus model Ashley Graham for Cacique
