This Inspiring Plus-Sized Model Is Proving That Beauty Comes In All Sizes

Meet Tess Holliday, a mother and size 22 model who’s recently been signed by a major agency, MiLK model management.

 

She’s the largest working model to ever be signed to an agency in the US.

 

The photos from her first shoot have just been released, and she looks absolutely amazing.

She’s the creator of #effyourbeautystandards, a movement calling for more diversity in the modelling industry.

 

And she’s got a point. We could all do with more diversity in the fashion industry.

 

But MiLK has drawn criticism as well as praise over her signing.

 

Critics says that in no way is Holliday promoting a healthy body image, and that she is just as damaging a role model as women who are unnaturally slim.

 

Tess has hit back, saying “Health is everyone’s personal decision. It’s their choice and I think that should be respected. There are a lot of reasons people are over- or underweight. We’re all at different places in our journey.”

 

Whether you’re for or against her modelling career, there’s no way you can deny how beautiful she is!
