Did Somebody Say "Ford Models"?!!

So, if you've been following my tweets, facebook updates, and references on recent blog posts, you know that I've been involved in a new series from Marie Claire & Hello Style on YouTube - a video version of my column "Big Girl in a Skinny World." On the series, I cover reader and viewer Q&A's, and now, a super awesome exclusive series that we've created in partnership with Ford Models - where I meet, interview, and hang out with the best faces from their Ford+ board. Think Candice Huffine, Kaela Humphries, Ashley Graham... Ford+ is the place where Crystal Renn and Tara Lynn made names for themselves, and that is the current home to some of my favorite models in the industry (including the very women I'm getting to meet now -- it's a total dream come true, like most of the things in my life lately, really). I'm so excited about the first two videos that we've created that I wanted to share them with you!!

Really, candidly - this experience has been so much fun. I mean, it's like a major babe fest, for one, and then there are little surprises - like you show up at Candice Huffine and her husbands's apartment and she's baked cookies for you and the crew and you chat about 50 Shades of Grey. Is this real life? Yes. Yes it is.

What I Wore: ASOS Curve Blazer, ASOS Curve Floral Dress, Miu Miu Glitter Heels (similar here)
What I wore: ASOS Curve Blazer, Alexander McQueen top (similar here), GAP Skinny Jeans, Miu Miu Necklace, Chanel Brooch

What do you think? Who are your favorite models? I'm so excited that these women are being heralded all over the world - not just as "plus size" models, but as incredible models and beautiful women - period.

  1. Congratulations on this cool project. It's great to have more and more focus on plus-size girls. And when it comes to my favorite models, plus-size or otherwise, Tara Lynn is definitely my favorite. Hope we get to see these girls more often. :)
    Love,

    This all sounds really great.  Would you be able to ask Hello Style if there is any way they can make the videos available for people to view outside of the USA?  As you know, you have a strong international following and I'd love to view these!  I'm based in Dubai, UAE but also have a UK VPN... thanks!
