Christina Mendez, the beautiful and curvy top plus size model, is set to walk in the Adrian Alicea Haute Couture Fashion Show during the Fall / Winter 2014 season of New York Fashion Week, February 12th, 2013 at Landmark on the Park. In a press release Christina was quoted as saying “ I am truly honored Adrian Alicea selected me to represent “Couture Curves”. With Adrian integrating a plus model alongside straight-sized models, he’s showcasing the beauty of fashion for everyone during New York Fashion Week….where opportunities for plus models to walk the runway are slim-to-none in the fashion capital of the world even with targeted fashion weeks.”
In PlusModelsToday.com’s opinion, this is exactly the how fashion and modeling should be – inclusive rather than divisive. It’s not that hard.
For more info on the show, including ticket reservations, please visit the house of Adrian Alicea’s website.

Curvy Kate, the D cup plus specialists are taking their annual Star in a Bra competition to America. The competition begins April 5, 2012 and will search the country for a naturally curvy woman who will become the face and body of the brand.
The Star in a Bra search will be run through the brand’s new USA Facebook page and encourages fans to submit their favorite lingerie shots to win an international modeling contract and a year’s worth of Curvy Kate Lingerie. They will also be flown to the UK to take part in the brand’s latest marketing campaign with fellow UK and Australian winners.
The competition strives to celebrate healthy curves, a positive body image and diversity. Curvy Kate Marketing Manager, Hannah Houston, stated, “We truly believe that our customers should model our lingerie as these are the girls who will be buying it. Our model search isn’t just a one off – it’s here to stay to prove how gorgeous the shapely figure looks in lingerie – wobbles, bumps and all. If you can wear Curvy Kate lingerie – you’re in.”
“We have found a great mix of models since our launch in 2009. From E to J cups and from size 10 to 18 girls – each and every one brings their own personality to our brand and we’re really looking forward to meeting the US winner.”
