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.

Beautiful ALDA models for BUST Magazine

 

ALDA models for BUST Magazine

 

Models Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Inga Eiriksdottir, Julie Henderson and Marquita Pring formed the group ALDA which promotes the idea that models need not be categorized or pigeonholed by size but instead they just need to be a member of the group called models. Basically then if they are models, then enough said.

The models in Alda came together in 2013 when Ford Models disbanded its Plus Division and group ALDA joined IMG Models. Their objective was to pursue work and compete with any other models as models and not as plus size models. They also want to expand on the idea that models should be judged on the basis of whether they can get the job done and not solely on their size.

You can read the full story in the February/March 2015 issue of BUST Magazine on sale now.

Marquita Pring for Eloquii by The Limited

Ford model Marquita Pring is a quite striking and shapely plus size model who can also deliver the all important beauty shot. This is the main reason she has  been working for some of the best designers and vendors in the industry.

She was stunning in the June 2011 Vogue Italia Belle Vere editorial. Her “furniture top” shot is one not easily accomplished but under the direction of  photographer Steven Meisel, it was pulled off with spectacular results. It’s one of those shots that if you ever see anything like it, you will always be reminded of Marquita and Vogue Italia.

eloquii by The Limited is their new online store that launched November 1, 2011.  The store features plus size women’s fashions, clothes and accessories with free shipping on all purchases and return. Currently, they ship only to the USA.

Robyn Lawley

Robyn Lawley is featured in a 10 page fashion editorial in the September issue of Vogue Australia. Lawley, a top Australian plus model, also covered the June 2011 issue of Vogue Italia with plus models Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine. Marquita Pring also appeared in a sizzling editorial with the cover models.

The September Australian editorial will be the first fashion editorial featuring a plus size model in the magazine’s 52 year history and it doesn’t disappoint. Robyn also covered Elle France’s April 2011 issue. Busy, busy!!!

We at plusmodelstoday.com think that this editorial will offer rock solid proof that plus size models can deliver top quality editorial work that can and  will compete “straight size” models, if there  was ever any doubt.  Lawley delivers big time.

Marquita Pring Reveals Plus Model Secret

Marquita Pring

As reported to WWD and widely across the Net, Marquita Pring reveals that she sometimes uses padding to accentuate her already gorgeous shape.

She told WWD:  ‘Some [clients] like you much smaller, [U.S.] size 10, size 8. Some people would prefer a 14 or 16. So for me, I’m right in the middle at a sort of small 14, high 12. So I pad sometimes since I’ve  got clients who would prefer a solid 14 or 16.

Reluctantly she said:

‘I don’t know if we should reveal this secret! They’re pieces of foam. So I just lay them flat on each hip underneath [hosiery].  They’re like a solid inch and a half thick… [and] make you seem all around wider.’

‘From the side you look kind of weird – and it feels weird. Like every now and then my arm gets caught on it and I’m like, wait, this isn’t me. But it’s better for me because I can still be healthy and work out and have the body I want. It’s a little bit of model magic.’

Is this OK ????    What do you think ?  Please post your comments below.

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.

Marquita Pring

Marquita Pring is a fashion model who has been generating a little buzz lately about wanting to be called a “curvy model” instead of a “plus size model”.  Whatever you call her, Ms. Pring is definitely one of the top models over a size 10 and is out to prove she is one of the top models at any size.

Marquita Pring and many others are helping change the public perception of what a model should look like and hence open many markets for all models to pursue.
