Marquita Pring for Real LovePhoto: Jeff An

Marquita Pring was recently interviewed by Elle Magazine on the topic of beauty and plus size models. The purpose of the interview by Kristina Rodulfo, was to discuss the Real Love Exhibition which highlighted the facial beauty of the models and not their curvy, beautiful bodies. The women featured in the exhibition were the ALDA models, a group of models who are on a mission to promote body diversity in the fashion industry. The group consists of Pring, Ashley Graham, Julie Henderson, Inga Eiriksdottir and Danielle Redman. The Real Love Exhibition project artists consists of Paul Warren and Jeff An.

The fashion industry has become acutely aware over the past few years how important the plus size market has become. Most efforts to promote that market have concentrated on showing how attractive and beautiful their curvy bodies are. Here’s the thing though; their faces are just as beautiful as any other models and it’s time to promote that fact as well. Here is the exhibition’s link, Real Love Exhibition, check it out, see what you think.

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.

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.

Tara Lynn Covers Elle Spain November 2013 Issue

Plus size beauty Tara Lynn graces the cover of Elle Spain and raises the bar for not only plus models but models of all sizes.  This proves once again that plus size models can and do compete successfully against models of other sizes. It may take a little longer than most had hoped to change the perception of plus size women by the industry and the public in general. However, we think the critical mass has been reached and the notion that beauty is a universal quality and applies to women, regardless of size, is fast becoming a foregone conclusion.
