Here’s to one of my New Year’s wishes! For 2009, let’s hope we see more of plus size models like Miami native Crystal Renn and Brazilian Fluvia Lacerda! Crystal Renn is a size 14. Crystal has been featured in French, Italian, and American issues of Vogue and walked the Paris runway modeling creations from Jean-Paul Gaultier. Crystal says, “I accept this is who I am. I love that I can model at this size and it’s fabulous.” Fluvia has modeled for Igigi and been featured in Figure Magazine. Here’s to both Crystal and Fluvia who inspire me to be the best I can be and who represent plus size beauty so well.

Plus size Model Fluvia Lacerda

Plus size model Nancy Hayssen

“Happy with who I am and where I am at!” The battle cry for the ages! That sentiment expressed so well by plus size model Nancy Hayssen who bares it all to make a statement as a response to anti-anorexia billboards that shocked the fashion world. Her point and the title of her book: You Can Be Sexy at any Size! We wholeheartedly agree.

Natalie Laughlin 1st Plus Size Model

I love the model Natalie Laughlin’s message. Natalie is the face of Anne Klein II and Liz Claiborne and has her own Billboard on Times Square for Mode Magazine. She promotes the concept that size is no longer an issue. She says, “It is all about style and not about size.” Here is a plus size model making a difference in fashion and how people view plus size women.

“Beat the Stylist” plus-size challenge

What? One of the criticisms for curvy women? Never seen a wrap dress that is flattering? How about one of the wrap dresses from Kiyonna. The difference? A wrap dress that wraps at the thigh which elongates the silhouette and flatters the figure! Kiyonna’s wrap dresses are the best wrap dresses on the market. Not comfortable in a wrap? Try a dress which cinches in at the waist to create or accent curves.
