Curvy Plus Size Model Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday Covers People Magazine

 

Tess Holliday, aka Tess Munster, covers the June 1, 2015 issue of People Magazine in its Body Issue. Although Holliday has been making big waves in the fashion industry lately, not everyone is happy about it. Before we get into that, let’s recount some of her recent accomplishments.  At 5’5? and 280 lbs., she made news by becoming the first size 22 model to be signed by a major modeling agency, MiLK Model Management. She was interviewed by Vogue Italia. She was featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine. A while back Holliday created the hashtag effyourbeautystandards which has been used across social media and has been instrumental in her meteoric rise to international fame.

Reports from Business Insider have it that an unnamed source who is inside the industry has been quoted as saying that in their opinion, Holliday would receive little work after all the hoopla dies down from recent events. Tess Holliday’s recent celebrity has reignited a familiar chorus in the seemingly never ending battle between those deem “body positive issues trump all” and those who think that at some point health and obesity concerns must be addressed. Social media is ablaze with comments from the major opinion camps and all points between. Tess has received over 900,000 fans on Facebook and over 700,000 followers on Instagram.

It’s hard to predict the outcome but now it’s probably safe to say that most sides have been heard and the public will decide, but it may take a while.
