Model, editor, writer, mother, wife, actress, salsa dancer, motivational speaker, and gardening guru; meet your modern day super woman, Olga Gonzalez-Ramos.
Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, this only child was an avid book reader. She even started a “Dear Diary” journal at the age of eight. This started her love affair with writing.
Today she is an editor of Daily Venus Diva, the Plus Size Lifestyle Magazine, Olga writes on a variety of topics, including the “Ask Olga” column. Have a life problem? She’s here to give you advice.
With her job at Daily Venus Diva she wanted to “create a haven and space for plus-size women displaced in a world bombarded with unrealistic expectations of what women are suppose to look like.” Her self-professed mission has been “to remove blinding aspects of full figure girls who believe they are predisposed towards a unhealthy lifestyle by creating a positive outlook and agenda on being plus-size.”
Olga started her blooming modeling career a little later than most models, but that hasn’t stopped her. She’s been featured in Marie Claire, All You Magazine, Figure and BUST to name a few. And she has many projects in the works. I look forward to seeing what she accomplishes in the future.
To learn more about Olga, check out her web site.
They were looking for “aspiring models who are photogenic, poses great personal style, inner glow, and exude confidence.” Congratulations to all the beautiful finalists!
It might be New York Fashion week and I do love fashion, but do you know what I love more? Full Figured Fashion Week! And it’s set to all go down again in New York on June 16-18, 2011!
I was lucky enough to be selected as a member of The Curvy Collective in Los Angeles last year for Full Figured Fashion Week(end). It was an amazing experience!
Every time I see founder Gwen DeVoe post something about FFFWeek on Facebook, I get more and more excited! As a matter of fact, they are currently searching for The (New) Face of Full-Figured Fashion Week for 2011. You might remember the stunning Rosie Mercado representing in 2010.
There are over 30 beautiful women vying for the spot! I can’t wait to see who wins!
Ex-plus model Crystal Renn, in an exclusive video interview via the Ford Models Blog, speaks up again about the issue of her recent weight loss.
“For some a thinner Crystal Renn has meant betrayal of the very foundations upon which she built her career as the most famous plus model in the world. On the face of it, these accusations appear founded, but do not hold up when subjected to further scrutiny. Lost in the discussion has been Crystal’s steady call for greater diversity in fashion and especially as it concerns size.” -Ford Models Blog
In the interview, Crystal states that if she were to go back up to her plus-size model weight she would have to develop a binge eating disorder.
“Crystal is an incredible model no matter her size and should be celebrated as such. I am not sure this will be the final word on the issue, but so far as this page is concerned this Crystal Renn interview draws a line under it.” -Ford Models Blog
I think she’s a beautiful woman and an amazing model. Can you leave it at just that? Do you not care anymore? Or do you feel “betrayed?”
