Lacerda has already appeared in Playboy Brazil in 2011. In that issue, she appeared fully clothed. The idea was to see how the readers would react to a plus size model in the highly acclaimed Playboy publication. To no one’s surprise, it was warmly received by the critics and public alike.

The absolutely glamorous plus model known as Sabina Karlsson has been named the face of a new campaign of Milk Makeup! Sabina is a well know Swiss international model who has been modeling since childhood. She started her career as a straight-size model but her body had other ideas. Accordingly, Sabina switched to plus size modeling and hasn’t looked back since.  Sabina is now a growing force to be reckoned with in the industry, and we are all the better for it.

Sabina has appeared for Chromat, H&M, Rebdolls, Addition Elle, Levis, and Essence Magazine.

Ashley Graham covers Maxim Magazine April 2016

Ashley Graham Beautiful Sexy Plus Model

Ashley Graham covers Maxim Magazine

Ashley Graham, curvy plus size model covers Maxim magazine and she does so in a stunning fashion. Graham is fresh off becoming the first plus size model to cover the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Here she flaunts that gorgeous face and body as she poses nude behind a shirt. If it seems that Graham is every where, it’s just about true and somehow there seems to be more in the works. She’s riding the waves that she started with Lane Bryant and Addition Elle, and SwimsuitsForAll(among others) as they continue to swell. But not everyone is happy though  – maybe Cheryl Tiegs isn’t and some recent posters on Graham’s Instagram site have complained that some of the Maxim photos appear to be overly “photoshopped”.

In the mean time things are going great for Graham and those who support diversity in the modeling industry, and that’s a good thing!

Check out more about Ashley at Maxim magazine.

Lane Bryant’s New TV Commercial Rejected

Lane Bryant Ad Rejected

Instagram Bans Curvy as search term…because it was used for porn

Instagram Bans Curvy

Social media giant Instagram has blocked all searches for the term “curvy” or #curvy. According to Mashable, a representative from Instagram was quoted as saying, “I can confirm that we did block the hashtag #curvy. It was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity.” “Please note that the block has nothing to do with the term ‘curvy’ itself.

Plus Models Today contends that it has everything to do with the term curvy. There are thousands of legitimate sites that use the term “curvy” in an appropriate manner. We feel that they should not be punished because some porn is being found under #curvy. Instagram may be better served by targeting those who are using #curvy in a manner that is contrary to their nudity guidelines.

We hope Instagram will reconsider its ban on #curvy.

Tess Holliday – Picture of the Week – 6/1/2015

Curvy Plus Size Model Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday, aka Tess Munster, covers the June 1, 2015 issue of People Magazine in its Body Issue. Although Holliday has been making big waves in the fashion industry lately, not everyone is happy about it. Before we get into that, let’s recount some of her recent accomplishments.  At 5’5? and 280 lbs., she made news by becoming the first size 22 model to be signed by a major modeling agency, MiLK Model Management. She was interviewed by Vogue Italia. She was featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine. A while back Holliday created the hashtag effyourbeautystandards which has been used across social media and has been instrumental in her meteoric rise to international fame.

Reports from Business Insider have it that an unnamed source who is inside the industry has been quoted as saying that in their opinion, Holliday would receive little work after all the hoopla dies down from recent events. Tess Holliday’s recent celebrity has reignited a familiar chorus in the seemingly never ending battle between those deem “body positive issues trump all” and those who think that at some point health and obesity concerns must be addressed. Social media is ablaze with comments from the major opinion camps and all points between. Tess has received over 900,000 fans on Facebook and over 700,000 followers on Instagram.

It’s hard to predict the outcome but now it’s probably safe to say that most sides have been heard and the public will decide, but it may take a while.

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.

Denise Bidot Walks in New York Fashion Week 2014

 

Denise Bidot walks in New York Fashion Week  September 2014

 

History was made as two labels sent plus size curvy models down the runway in two separate shows to rave reviews. One of the best aspects of each event was that both straight and plus size models were presented as a cohesive group of models presenting their designer’s creations as only they individually could. In other words, it was all about top designs and top models and not about size.

Denise Bidot walked for Chromat by Becca McCharen whose show included other plus models. The other label, Zana Bayne, by Zana Bayne featured top curvy model Gia Geneiveve and several other plus models as well.

Denise is represented by Muse Model Management
