I have been asked who I would give the “Plus-size crown,” to. So I decided to put 15 names into a hat and pick five by random, starting with a description of what I thought about each one. This was fun, so here it goes.
Rosie Mercado – Although I’m a sucker for wide hips, she is one of a kind, showing to be graceful with great persistence in reaching her goals. She is a woman with courage and a need to show what plus-size fashion is all about. With a high rise smile her cheek bones stand out, and to add the cheery on top, her teeth are as white as snow. In my eyes, there’s no such thing as seeing too much of Rosie.
Alex La Rosa – The caramel voluptuous princess, long hair don’t care — shines bright in her dress. To me, she’s so smooth that she can walk a catwalk and make everything look groovy that even straight-size models would look up to her. Having said that, she always smiles with a body positive credence, showing no slight form of doubt within herself. Something that I love to see in all plus-size women.
Joby Bach – Tall, thick, seductive, with good dressing etiquette. I can tell you that I honour her, that she looks good in every bit of garment she puts on, and I can tell she’s such a strong woman from her persona. Yes, I am receptive to peoples’ energy whether that’s through pictures or meeting them in person. Joby is eye-catching in every direction.
Laura Lee – This beauty, always shows what she’s got in her wardrobe, those endless sets of finery will never cease to exist. Her taste from tops to bottoms, and not to forget, her shoes makes me always wonder what she’s going to put on next. Logging on to social media, that inner voice in my head says, “surprise me,” and guess what, she invariably does. Laura Lee sends tingles down my spine.
Philomena Kwao – Say hello to the sweet mother of chocolate — the African dame to kill for, the lady in the high-rise skinny jeans. Not many women have the style she has; being so humble and curvy with it is a huge attraction for me to feel that she’s one of the most remarkable plus-size models around. She is a glorious goddess with a bonus of curves.
So who would I give the “Plus-size crown,” to? Well, I cannot decide because they are all beautiful and each have something unique to offer to us. They are all winners in my eyes, all can walk the catwalk with great style and curves, and I love how they make social media a better place; without these models I would feel as if something’s missing in the world full of plus-size women. They bring out the artistic side of things to show that they have an equal-eloquent flavour just like straight-size models.
Who would you give the crown to?
