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.
