Brazilian model Fluvia Lacerda accepted the Full Figure Fashion Week Award for Best Plus Commercial Print Model of the Year Saturday June 18th, 2011 at the Full Figured Fashion Week Awards at The Marriott Marquis Hotel, New York City.
Fluvia is a triple threat in that she has face, curves, and she knows how to model. However, the biggest thing we feel she has going for her is her confidence. She is strongly grounded in who she is and it shows in all her photographs.
Congratulations to Fluvia on receiving her award and Full
Figured Fashion Week on their third annual New York event.
