Bree Warren in Recognize Magazine

Bree Warren is a plus size model who is on the rise in the fashion industry. Maybe it’s because of her hour-glass figure, 38C-30-42. Maybe it’s because her height of 5’11” adds a certain proportionality to her curvaceous body. Maybe it’s because she rocks a 10-12 dress size. While all those stats are impressive, we think it’s mainly because of her classic beauty. Her face is fresh but also has all the traditional characteristics of a top model.  Bree Warren is a total package who we expect to see more of in the future.

Bree is represented by  Wilhelmina NYC, Brigitte Models Germany, Hughes Models London, Dallys Models Brisbane, and BGM in Sydney.

Whitney Thompson: NBC Banned My Superbowl Ad

Whitney Thompson, America’s Next Top Model winner claims than an ad for her plus size dating site, submitted to NBC for consideration for Superbowl air time was rejected because of fat discrimination. Her rep released this statement:

I wanted to pass along an ad that has been rejected by NBC. The ad stars America’s Next Top Model winner and plus-sized model Whitney Thompson. She believes they rejected the commercial because it features bigger women and not the skinnier accepted norm.

The ad is for — a dating site for plus-sized men and women that was founded by Thompson. NBC Universal’s rejection email said: “Unfortunately it needs to be completely reworked for our air. S&P [Standards and Practices] wouldn’t approve it.” The ad can be viewed here.

The base cost for a Superbowl ad is $3,000,000.

Well, what do you think? Is this “fat discrimination”?  Could it have been rejected for some other reason like video quality, contrived story line, or the butt shot of the “skinny woman?  Is it just a publicity stunt? Tell us below.

Lizzie had size acceptance issues growing up but now is more than proud of her size 14 body and her 34G bra size.

The fact that she overcame traditional modeling no-no’s like her age, height and very curvy body, just shows that if your are good enough, people will notice.
