Ashley Graham an official Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model for 2016

Ashley Graham an official Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model for 2016

When dreams come true! I can only imagine how happy Ashley Graham will be feeling right now. She just announced a hour ago that she will be an official Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model for this year. She will be in the selection for Rookie of the Year 2016 and yes, we can all vote for her to help her win this award. At the moment you can only see the models from 2015, if the voting is online we will share with you the link.

It is amazing to see all the things Ashley Graham achieves in her career. Although she was only included in the Sports Illustrated magazine as a commercial for Swimsuits For All, for us she is still the FIRST curvy model to be seen in this magazine.

At least this year she can also become an official model for it.

RACHEL ROY OFFERS NOW ALSO PLUS SIZE CLOTHES

WE WANT MORE PLUS SIZE BRANDS TO REPRESENT BIGGER SIZES!

WE WANT MORE PLUS SIZE BRANDS TO REPRESENT BIGGER SIZES!

english

I am thrilled to see how the most wanted plus size brand of the US featured a size 28 model for their newest lookbook. The plus size brand Eloquii started to feature bigger models for their lookbooks. This time they show plus model and blogger Emmicia Bracey. Though it’s not the first time they featured bigger sizes, it is for me the first time I saw it. And I loved it!

Second Model/Blogger: Reah Norman

If you ask me plus size brands should present more plus size women who are above size 16 also. I don’t want to exclude the smaller plus sizes, I just want to include the queen size women.
Why is this still so difficult to do?
Eloquii found them by asking bloggers to do this. Is this such a bad thing?
Honestly, bloggers are called the new fashion superstars for a good reason. Bloggers like me and many others we know how to pose. We try new poses with every look and we grow through our blogs. Bloggers are not only already proffessional enough to work with, but we represent also the real consumer. Mainly because we also consume like all the others. 😉 But yes, I like the idea of fashion brands using bigger sizes for their lookbook.

Eloquii is not the only brand who already did this. See below pictures of Tess Holliday who became a model for Monif C and pictures of German bloggers who presented their own designs for the brand Studio Untold.

Monif C is without any doubt also very trendy and everyone wants their looks, even we in Germany. Monif C and Eloquii proved both to be a hit for the consumers, because of their tredy styles.

Models: Tess Holliday, Jada Sezer & Kris Yeo

Studio Untold is a new German plus size brand which is also very trendy. Studio Untold asked several German bloggers to design outfits for them and the result are 5 great looks. Some of the bloggers like Theodora Flipper, Conquore · The Fatshion Café and Lisa Mosch are even some of my favorite bloggers from Germany. I can already predict that they will become Germany’s answer for Eloquii and I am very excited about it.

Dear owners of plus size brands, please don’t be afraid to present bigger sizes in your lookbook. Your consumers will not hate or criticize you so much for this. They will rather think: “WOW, I am so happy to see a woman in my size wearing the dress I always liked from this brand.” And then the consumer will think that the model still looks great even with her big tummy. And that is so much more important in gaining trust! This was just an example, but as a consumer I know how other women feel.

Style & Curve stands for plus size diversity, therefore we want to feature different sizes in the upcoming magazine issue. I hope many more brands will also change their way of thinking and start to understand that fashion is for all sizes, all ages, all nationalities, all religions… – ALL WOMEN LOVE FASHION!

Cheers from Lyz Lupo :*

Ich war hellauf begeistert davon zu sehen das eines der angesagtesten Plus Size Marken der USA ein Model der Größe 60 (US Größe 28) für ihr neuestes Lookbook gewählt hat. Und sie sieht toll aus! Die Marke Eloquii hat schon zuvor ein größeres Model präsentiert, aber ich habe jetzt erst etwas davon mitbekommen. Ich muss wohl nicht extra darauf hinweisen, dass sowas in Deutschland unmöglich erscheint….Aber ich liebe es!

Wenn ihr mich fragt, dann sollten sich mehr Marken trauen Frauen zeigen die grö0er als sind. Ich will damit nicht die kleineren Größen ausschließen, sondern nur eher motivieren die richtig Großen Größen in die Mode einzuführen. Warum ist das heute immernoch so schwierig?
Eloquii hat es doch auch geschafft, indem sie Blogger gefragt haben. Ist das denn so eine schlechte Sache?

Ganz ehrlich, Blogger werden nicht umsonst als die neuen Mode Superstars benannt. Blooger wie ich und viele andere wissen wie wir uns präsentieren müssen. Wir probieren immer neuere Looks und Posen und wachsen durch unseren Blog. Blogger sind nicht nur proffessionell genug, sondern wir repräsentieren die Kunden. Hauptsächlich, weil wir ja auch Kunden sind. Und ja, ich mag die Idee das Plus Size Marken auch Größere Models zeigen.

Aber Eloquii ist nicht die einzige Marke die das erkannt hat. Siehe weiter unten Bilder von Tess Holliday welches ein Model für Monif C wurde und Bilder von Deutschen Blogger mit ihren selbst designten Stücken für die Marke Studio Untold.

Monif C ist ohne Zweifel auch eine sehr angesagte Marke und jeder will die Stücke haben, sogar wir hier in Deutschland. Monif C und Eloquii haben bereits bewiesen das sie ein Hit bei den Kunden sind, da sie so sehr gefragt sind.

Studio Untold ist eine neue Deutsche Plus Size Marke, aber genauso gefragt. Studio Untold fragte verschiedene Deutsche Blogger ob sie für sie designen wollen und das Ergebnis sind 5 richtig tolle Looks. Sie haben Blogger gewählt wie Theodora Flipper, Elisabeth von Conquore · The Fatshion Café und Lisa Mosch, welche ich auch selber gerne verfolge und mag. Ich kann der Marke jetzt schon voraussagen das es die Deutsche Antwort auf Eloquii wird.

Meine lieben Geschäftsführer der vielen Plus Size Marken, bitte habt keine Angst ein Model mit einer Übergröße zu wählen für euer Lookbook. Eure Kunden werden euch nicht zu sehr dafür angreifen. Sie werden eher denken: “WOW, Ich bin so froh eine Frau in meiner Größe zu sehen die mein Lieblingskleid dieser Marke trägt.” Und die Kunden werden auch eher denken das sie immernoch toll aussieht auch mit einem großen Bauch. Das ist in meinen Augen sehr wichtig um das Vertrauen der Kunden zu gewinnen. Das war natürlich nur ein Beispiel, aber da ich auch Konsument bin kann ich es eher verstehen was eine Frau so fühlt.

Style & Curve steht für eine Größenvielfalt, daher werden wir in unserem anstehenden Magazin verschiedene Größen präsentieren. Und ich hoffe das mehr Marke ihre Meinung ändern werden und Anfangen zu verstehen das Mode für alle Größen, für alle Alterklassen, für alle Nationen, für alle Religionen…. – ALLE FRAUEN LIEBEN MODE!!!!

Liebe Grüße Lyz Lupo :*

Arden’s Closet is actually my company. It is a pull closet for styling real size women for events, photo shoots or just everyday wear. I also offer personal shopping and Closet’s Cleanups. Every 3mths Arden’s Closet puts on a Sip n’ Swap where the FAB Plus Fashionistas of Atlanta get together and sip on Moscato and swap gently used or new clothing, shoes, hand bags and accessories. 

3. Do you also offer shipping? In which countries?

No Arden’s Closet doesn’t provide shipping but when I have the yearly closet cleanup I do put Items up for sale and will ship anywhere.

In 2014 I want to push my self to the next level and work out side my box.

5. What was your best and worst experience in your life?

The worst thing that I have ever experienced in my life is losing my father at the age of 13. The best experience is when I realize that I have the best mother in the world and she is my best friend.

6. What do you like about yourself the most and what do you hate about yourself?

I love my determination the will to keep going even though people think I shouldn’t. I hate that I wear my emotions on my shelves.

7. Do you think the plus size industry need some more inprovement? which ones?

I feel this industry is improving but I wish the industry was more open to petite plus models in high fashion and mainstream and would not be so quick to shut you down because of your height. 

8. What do you like about Style.& Curve?

I really enjoy Style & Curve because it celebrates women with curves in a positive way. It shows that women with curves have beauty & Style!!

Angelita’s Weekly Blog, Reflecting on 2013

Angelita’s Weekly Blog, Reflecting on 2013

AS3

Image by: Imiko

Hello Beautiful models and fans of Style & Curve. It’s Angelita Aronce Sorensen here with my first weekly blog of 2014.  First I want to take a moment to apologize for not posting a blog the last 4 weeks.  I was very ill and hospitalized for a week and I was on the road to recovery but now I’m much better and I’m back!  Being the second day of 2014 I thought I would reflect on the wonderful opportunities and amazing things that have happened in 2013.  I believe I’ve already mentioned in a previous blog that I started my modeling and acting career at age 41.  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be as successful as I’ve been and 2013 was definitely a wonderful year for me.

I’ve acted in several great films starting 2013 off with filming the feature film “Zombie Prombie” in the role of Nurse AbbyIMG_2753 and although it’s still in postproduction you can find some info on it here.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Zombie-Prombie  The next feature film I worked on right after that was H.O.A. Havoc starring Daniel Baldwin and my character is Flatula. IMG_3051 It was a fun and comedic role and this film is also in postproduction and I even performed a scary stunt but it was well worth it.  A short film that I was part of and actually filmed in 2012, “The Symphony of Silence” in the role of Ana Symphony of Silence, a mother who goes after her son’s bully won the Platinum Remi Award at 2013 Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival.

I also starred in my first music video by Mallorie, the song is called “Imagine” and it is such a beautiful Military inspired Love Song.  It was such an honor when I was contacted and asked to be part of this project.   Mallorie wanted a real military couple so I my husband was my co-star in this music video.   The link to this beautiful song and music video on YouTube is below.

I was also involved with NDG Productions and was part of four commercials for various free family events for The Thingamajigy Fayre, SciFest 2013, Monstercon 2013

, and Nerdtactular Holiday Bazaar 2013.   I was also involved in other film projects ranging from commercial work to features and ranging from extra work to lead roles in 2013.  You can find my IMDB page here: http://www.imdb.me/angelita.sorensen

Regarding modeling projects, I started off 2013 by gracing the cover of Latin Connection Magazine with a 3-page story inside.  You can download a free digital copy or purchase a hard copy at this link. http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/550960  I was blessed to be part of a few print projects including the Timeless Beauty Book, featuring models over the age of 40 by the talented photographer Imiko. 465019_587995821224785_1494658278_o http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/3474397/631f1c4f7ed92dffcbb85f099ba314b2d0766550  I was also Miss August in a calendar fundraiser project for Cancer Benefit 1076992_10200985362748228_2051279750_o, Empowering to Live and I’m finishing the year out with another calendar project called “Warmth for the Homeless” as Ms. May 2014. Calendar Thumbnails revised The proceeds will be used to purchase coats and blankets for the homeless in our community.  The calendars are only $10 so feel free to contact me if you’re interested in supporting our cause and wish to purchase a calendar.   Two of the most exciting things that happened with my modeling career in 2013 was being the July Profile Pic winner for CMR and I will be one of the 8 faces of Fashion A Go Go Profile Pic launching this plus size clothing line in Paris, April of 2014.  I am in great company with some of the most beautiful international models!  I am also one of the bloggers on Style & Curve fka Curvy Models Rocks.  I have also modeled for quite a few photographers and ripped the runway in quite a few shows, many of them being charity fundraising fashion shows like the Fiesta Fierce Fashion Parade that benefited the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Fiesta Fierce

In 2013, I also gave back to the community with organizations like NDG HeroesNDG Heroes.  I participated in several events with NDG Heroes to help raise money for children with devastating diseases.   I also went to the children’s hospital to visit some of the children and knowing that they are suffering from horrible illnesses, seeing their faces light up when walking into their rooms was so rewarding.  I was also involved with several other projects including “Women in Heels” an organization that is consistently giving back to the community and co-founded by one of my best friends, Valerie Anne Chavira-Luna.   I also put together a fundraiser as Ms. Texas Plus Size Diva 2012/13 called TPSD Divas & Gents094.  It was a bachelor/bachelorette auction to raise funds for the TPSD organization and to benefit a family dealing with cancer.  Daytime @ 9 in San Antonio even interviewed me on their show to promote the TPSD organization and to promote this fundraiser.  I also mentor teenagers and women privately.  Giving back is one of the most rewarding things that I have the privilege of doing.

2013 was an amazing year.  I have a wonderful support systems, a family and husband who love and support me unconditionally and of course friends who also love and support me and mean the world to me.  I’ve learned a lot, grown from all my experiences this past year whether they would good, bad or indifferent.  For those of you who feel like your life is going nowhere, I can relate, I’ve been there and I can tell you that it’s up to YOU to change the direction of your life. YOU are the ONLY person who can make a difference in your life. Find your inner strength and understand that it is NOT too late to follow your dreams. Don’t let the “haters” bring you down. Smile and show them what you can do…that is the best “revenge” and Karma will take care of the rest.   I guarantee that you will get many rejections but don’t allow that to stop you from chasing your dreams, whether it’s to be a model, an actress or anything else you choose to do in life. Don’t allow the negative people along the way bring you down and trust me; there will be negative people that will cross your path. Take control of your future, even if it means smashing through preconceived boundaries in this industry. Until next week, stay positive!
