Michael Kors Features Ashley Graham in NYFW
Designer Michael Kors’ decision to feature plus size model Ashley Graham in his NYFW show last week has gotten a lot of attention by mainstream media. While Kors was one of the first high-end designers to carry extended sizes, that inclusive attitude stopped at the catwalk, until now. The fierce and fabulous Ashley Graham stole the show (Kendall Jenner who? Kidding!) I’m excited to see where this goes. Here’s a look at the full show, enjoy!
Prabal Gurung is in the right lane with his collaboration with Lane Bryant. He’s the latest designer to join forces with the plus size retailer and it looks like they’re the perfect pair. Gurung’s muse is none other than the amazing Ashley Graham. Sarah of Curvily created the hashtag #plussizeplease and it looks like retailers are taking notice. Head to Curvily for the full scoop, release dates and price range.
Hunter McGrady is S I Swimsuit’s Curviest Model Ever!
Images of plus model Hunter McGrady’s hand painted body have been flooding the internet. The American Beauty is officially the curviest girl to be featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. The 23-year-old is one of SI’s Rookies of the Year and wise beyond hers. I love the body positive post she shared on her Instagram. “Women, for anyone who has ever felt uncomfortable or insecure because of rolls, or stretch marks, or cellulite, or acne, or felt like you didn’t measure up because you weren’t represented in the magazines–THIS IS FOR YOU! You are beautiful. You are STRONG. You are powerful and together we need to lift each other up and inspire one another.”
Plus Model Magazine is one of my go-to resources for finding models to feature in my Model Monday Moment series. I love their 40 + Blogger Series where they feature bloggers who are over 40 and fabulous! I’ve followed Sandra of La Pecosa Preciosa on Instagram for a couple years and love her love of leopard and pops of color. I was happy to see that she was featured in PMM and just had to share!
