When I look back and realize how far the plus-size fashion industry has come, I can’t help but think of those who fought and helped it evolve. Emme, known as the “first plus-size supermodel,” is one of those people. And she is far from finished. I don’t normally share interviews that I don’t do myself, but I felt like this is one you should read. She opens up about how she got started, her views on the plus-size fashion industry, and what she’s working on.
I think this just might be my last post about Full Figured Fashion Week 2013. I’ve done quite a few! Well, since it’s probably the last (unless I come across more photos), I’d love to share some of the looks I saw on the night of the Indie Fashion Showcase. I’ve always been kind of a people watcher, and I can’t enough of other people’s personal style. This night I saw such an eclectic mix of fashion and it was awesome!
Looking stunning as ever, model Clementine Desseaux is featured in IGIGI’s new campaign for their “Into the Blue” collection. I’m loving the bold colors, feminine silhouettes, color blocking, and fun prints. It doesn’t hurt to have a gorgeous model shot against the backdrop of San Francisco’s historic Cliff House by the Sutro Baths in Ocean Beach either.
My favorite “5 Questions” is getting a little extra something something over the next two weeks! It’s the CURVY GIRLS Edition! Get to know the girls from NuvoTV’s hot reality show CURVY GIRLS, before the June 11th premiere of Season 2!

Hey loves! Here we are with another 5 Questions profile! This time I want to introduce you to Robin, who is awesome by-the-way. You may recognize her as one of the models from the 365Hangers Style-A-Thon. She’s not only beautiful, but very kind and always willing to help me out! I love this chick!!
Are you ladies ready for nuvoTV’s fall premiere of Curvy Girls? I know I am!! It’s like hurry up already!! Models Rosie Mercado, Denise Bidot, Lornalitz Baez and Ivory Kalber give us a look into their lives in this anticipated reality series. Last week, they welcomed me with open arms to the famous Siren Studios set in Hollywood.
I love the “5 Question” feature on this blog. I think it’s a really great way to get to know someone a little better without dragging on a long interview. Today, I want to introduce you to an amazing model, Monique Robinson. I first met Monique at Full Figured Fashion Week 2011. She immediately stood out to me and rocked that finale runway show! I had to go over and introduce myself after. She is one of my favorite models and of course I love her name…duh! So, If you don’t know who she is…well get to know her, because I know you’ll be seeing a lot more of her!
I’ve said this before and I will say it again…this magazine is just getting better and better. Seriously, I’m in awe of the April issue of Plus Model Magazine. Maddy and her team do an amazing job of bringing us this monthly issue. Yes, I’m the shopping editor, but even if I wasn’t I would still love it. You can check out my shopping trends feature on pages 36-41. Make sure you read this from front to back. It’s filled to the brim with amazingness!
IGIGI’s latest campaign, Art of Fashion in Motion, features beautiful model Kailee O’Sullivan. I’ve always been an IGIGI fan, not only because Yuliya Raquel’s designs are so chic, but because she uses the most stunning models! Don’t take my word for it, just take a look at the images below, then do a little shopping here.
If I’m going to do any kind of 2011 recap, I’m definitely going to add my favorite plus models of the year. These models are taking the fashion world by storm. You’ve seen these ladies everywhere and there’s no stopping them! I personally know a few of them and I can tell you they are amazingly sweet and down to earth. Each of them are unique in their own way and have curves that kill! If you want to know about more about these beauties click on their photos, most of them are linked to their web sites and Facebook pages.
