ImNoAngel …Lane Bryant vs. Victoria’s Secret … May All Women Win!
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 ALDA models for BUST Magazine
Models Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Inga Eiriksdottir, Julie Henderson and Marquita Pring formed the group ALDA which promotes the idea that models need not be categorized or pigeonholed by size but instead they just need to be a member of the group called models. Basically then if they are models, then enough said.
The models in Alda came together in 2013 when Ford Models disbanded its Plus Division and group ALDA joined IMG Models. Their objective was to pursue work and compete with any other models as models and not as plus size models.
