Maria Gimena Picture of the Week


Model Maria Gimena


Top plus model Maria Gimena got off to a great start in her modeling career after she was named “The Face of Torrid” in 2017.  It’s been a wonderful learning experience for her ever since then. Talk about learning,  this beauty is also multi-lingual; speaking Spanish, Italian, and English, and quite the stunner to boot!

As the winner of the 2017 competition, Gimena received a modeling contract with Torrid as well as a full Torrid wardrobe. Gimena hopes to not only be a visibly plus size model, but also a visibly body positive role model.

Here the lovely Maria is wearing the Navy Studio Knit Wrap Dress for Torrid.

Maria Gimena


Plus model Maria Gimena was selected from the four finalists as the competition winner and was named the Face of Torrid for 2017.  Maria wins a modeling contract and a wonderful wardrobe from Torrid as well. This curvy beauty is 24 years old and was born in Uruguay. She is now a New Jersey resident. She is also multi-lingual(Spanish, Italian, and English) and quite the stunner.

Like many young women, Maria experienced criticism from some of her peers about her appearance and size but eventually overcame those experiences. Now she is very confident in herself and her looks; and very justifiably so.  Looking forward to seeing more of Maria in the coming year.
