Tara Lynn – Picture of the Week – 4/27/2015

Tara Lynn – International Top Model

 

Tara Lynn for S Moda

 

 

Tara Lynn is a leading plus model with all the qualities to remain a top model for years to come. She has worked for many of the top brands in the business and puts her own signature look on everything to stamp it as “gotta have”.

One of the most important events in Tara Lynn’s professional career was covering Vogue Italia’s June 2011 issue. It’s groundbreaking and iconic editorial “Belle Vere” also featured Candice Huffine, Robyn Lawley on the cover. Marquita Pring was also featured in the editorial which was shot by renowned photographer Steven Meisel. From the moment that issue became available, the plus model paradigm was firmly established. Almost everyone in the fashion industry took note and somehow knew that plus models had arrived and were here to stay. Vogue Italia had seized the moment and changed the course of plus modeling.

More recently, Tara has been seen for Addition Elle, Torrid, H&M, Elle Denmark, Elle Spain, Elle Belgium, and Forever 21. Tara Lynn is seen here on the cover of the January 2015 issue of the Spanish language magazine S Moda.

Her representation includes Heffner Management, IMG Models, and Francina Models.

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.
