As you may know, Tess (Munster) Holliday was recently signed to Milk Model Management in London, as the first model of her height and size. She is 5’5 and a size 22, this is beyond major!
I would have loved to see a woman of her size in ads when I was a teen shopping for school clothes or daydreaming about being a model.
Unfortunately, media had fooled us into believing that plus size women were unacceptable to be in mainstream media. With the likes of Rebel Wilson, Gabourey Sidibe, and Melissa McCarthy starring in movies and t.v series, they are paving the way and making a significant change in the game. As well as body positive activists Gabi Gregg, Tess Munster, and many others. I am excited to see what this year brings.
What are your thoughts on Tess being signed to a major model agency? I would love to hear your feedback.
