Shadia Model Stuns

Shadia Model Stuns

Shadia is a top international model who recently walked in the Addition Elle runway show at the Spring/Summer 2018 edition of New York Fashion Week. Overall NYFW was a very diverse event in terms of model size and model ethnicity.  As most people know by now, the thing about a model that matters most is whether or not she can get the job done. These ladies got the job done and much, much more. We are looking forward to seeing more models like them in swimwear and lingerie promotions.

Shadia has worked for brands such as Addition Elle, Castaluna, Jean Marc Philippe, Rebdolls and Plumety, to name a few. Here  she is wearing this beautiful yet hot “Shades of Burgundy” for Fashion to Figure.

Queen Latifah to Launch Clothing Line on HSN

Queen LatifahQueen Latifah is launching her own line of fashions on the Home Shopping Network in August  but she doesn’t like the term “plus-size”.

“It’s just a word to bury at this point,” the singer/actress told Women’s Wear Daily.  “It’s for all sizes.”

Queen Latifah is another voice joining the chorus of those who don’t particularly care for the term “plus-size”.  Tyra prefers the term “fiercely real” and  Marquita Pring prefers “curvy” especially when used to describe a fashion model who now is referred to as a “plus size model”.

Do you find the term “plus size” inappropriate ?  Please leave a comment below.
