Shout out to plus size diva Tess Holliday! She is covering this weeks People Magazine and doing it quite well! Curvy gals are making waves now as far as modeling and I can’t be more excited for her! Why shatter someone’s dreams of modeling if they have the looks to do it, no matter what size! I dream too of my daughter Dootie modeling but I am realistic and know that she may not be tall enough but she just may be able to do some print work! Whatever in life you want to do guys, pursue it and don’t let anyone tell you no! Work hard, be diligent and just like Tess, all things are possible!
Tess is now signed to Milk Modeling agency out of the U.K. but you may have seen her model for Monif C, Torrid, cosmetic line Benefit and a few others! This is such an inspiration for other young girls out there!
In her interview she shares her first experience at a casting at 15yrs old…
“Nobody was interested… I got one call back and they said, ‘Look, you have a pretty face, but you’re too short and you’re too big.’ “
