Size 22 Tess Holliday scores modeling contract
The 5’5” Tess has become the world’s largest professional plus-size model to sign a modeling contract and appear in the fashion magazine ‘Vogue.’ The twenty-nine year old grew up in Mississippi where she would endure years of bullying due to her weight. And even after being told by an agent that she was too short and too fat to be a model Tess would not give up.
Tess, however, would not be deterred. She would take to social media, most notably Instagram, posting pictures of herself in bathing suits and underwear accompanied with the ‘#effyourbeautystandards.’ Positive comments and support would come pouring in and soon the number of followers she had would grow to amazing numbers. Her actions would become a source of inspiration to thousands of plus size females encouraging them to be proud of their bodies and letting them know that they too and sexy.
This would catch the attention of Anna Shillinglaw, the owner and director of MiLk Model Management. This past Thursday the MiLk announced the contract in a blog-post and via Instagram, the very vehicle that propelled Tess to this point. The young lady now looks to the pages of the fasion periodical ‘Vogue’ where we hope to see more plus-size self confidence that makes Tess so special.
Congratulations Tess! You should be proud and please continue to set such a fine example.
