Ashley Graham recently talked about how the Victoria’s Secret brand should have plus-size models working for them and rocking the annual runway show.

On whether she would work for Victoria’s Secret:

Oh yeah. I mean when Victoria’s Secret calls me and asks me to be on there runway I am going to say yes. It’s a matter of time.

On maintaining her shape:

I eat in moderation and I workout. Only the things that are supposed to jiggle, jiggle.

Ashley Graham: “I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it”

ashley-graham-legs-5-1 - Ashley Graham: "I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it"

On her big break and becoming a super famous model:

For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalog girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back.

On the fact that she is genetically blessed, but that’s not enough:

Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, “OK, so what can I do now?”

… says Ashley.

Tess Holliday & Regular Women Re-Created the VS Show

tess-holliday-victorias-secret - Tess Holliday & Regular Women Re-Created the VS Show

Tess Holliday modeling for Victoria’s Secret? Not quite, but close enough – ladies of all shapes and sizes and famous plus-size model Tess Holliday (who says she is a size 22 US) created their own VS-like runway show and rocked the catwalk in lingerie.

More details from Buzzfeed:

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is an event that happens every year, and the models who walk in the show are often regarded as the most beautiful women on earth. It’s safe to say that there is a Victoria’s Secret “type” of model. The women are usually all cisgender, with long hair (though several models had short hair this year), extremely tall, and of course, thin. But if you look around you, you’ll see the beauty in the everyday woman. So we decided to put on our own fashion show — with women from all shapes and sizes. Here’s what happened!

Watch the video below!

Plus-size model Tess Holliday on not feeling ready for the runway because she just had a baby:

‘I’ve never been the kind of model that gets to be part of runway shows, especially lingerie because of my size and height but I did the damn thing. It’s full of diversity, the way VS shows should be. I was definitely really nervous to show my stomach because I don’t really ever show this much of my stomach — especially because I have a five-and-a-half-month-old baby.’

So, I did a thing 💃🏻👠👑🙈@buzzfeed recreated their version of the #victoriasecretfashionshow & I walked the runway in my diiiiiivine @catherinedlish dressing gown & my undies! 🙈 I've never been the kind of model that gets to be part of runway shows, especially lingerie because of my size & height but I did the damn thing. My husband was cheering me on in the back & even though I was terrified, damn if it wasn't liberating! The link to watch the video is in my bio, & please do! It's full of diversity, the way VS shows should be 💁🏻 Thank you to @jazzmynejay & @sheridanbwatson for the opportunity & @curvycoutureintimates for capturing this image 💯🙌🏻💋#6monthspostpartum #effyourbeautystandards @effyourbeautystandards

Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: “I’m not selling out the big girls”

chrissy-metz-weight-2-1 - Chrissy Metz on Losing Weight for Her Show: "I’m not selling out the big girls"

The topic of ‘Chrissy Metz weight’ has been trending recently, after the first hit episodes of the new NBC show This Is Us. The 37 year-old actress plays Kate on the show, who is about lose weight as a result of gastric bypass surgery – and the actress is excited for the major journey she’s about to embark on. Chrissy recently opened up about her weight, body image and losing weight for her role:

On losing weight for the show:

It’s a different kind of motivation, so I was excited about it. In our contract, it did state that that would be a part of it, to lose the weight in the trajectory of the character as she comes to find herself. That was a win-win for me. Because it’s one thing to try to do it on your own. But as human beings, it’s an ego thing: We’re more likely to do something for someone else.

On the fact that losing weight doesn’t mean that she is betraying the bigger girls:

I, as Chrissy, want to do things that mentally, emotionally and physically make me the best that I can be. That’s the intention for our writers and the development of the character. I just have to be very clear. Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive — because I think they’re awesome and sexy. So I’ll just have to make sure that’s known, because I’m not selling out the big girls. I don’t do that. That’s not me.

On how at her size, weight is always the focus:

You know, it’s really hard for me because I have friends who are like, Why do we have to talk about the weight? Why can’t you just be an actor who happens to be overweight in the show and you’re moving on with your life? and I completely understand that. Eventually I know that that will be the case — there will just be plus-size actors and it’s not going to be talked about. However, this role is written about a woman who — it was loosely based on Dan Fogelman’s sister — who struggled with her weight and her self-worth. And a lot of people do, and I have myself, as a human being. So this is a story that needs to be told because there are people who find their self-worth in the number on the scale.

Tess Holliday: “I don’t understand why it’s not okay to be plus-size”

Size 22 model Tess Holliday recently shared her thoughts on a few body image topics:

On not understanding why people hate the terms ‘plus-size’:

‘I don’t understand why it’s not okay to be plus-size. I don’t know why people hate that phrase. Many models have built their careers as plus-size women and then suddenly don’t want to be called that anymore.’

On why the world needs more plus-size models:

‘When young girls Google the term model, the first women that pop up are Gigi and Kendall. I think it’s really important for all young girls to see themselves represented in fashion so they don’t feel alone in the world.’

On the pressures of bouncing back after having a baby:

‘I try my best to distance myself from the pressure, but it’s a lot. I recently attended a Refinery29 event and I was reminded that I’m still the biggest person in the room. I’m still trying to figure out my new body and how I feel.’

On her ambition of becoming a famous model:

‘I think that I have a career because I never gave up. I had to fight for everything. I was always in a position where I had to figure things out on my own. So when people told me that I couldn’t model, I just remember thinking that it was ridiculous. I felt like I had already been through the impossible.’

… says size 22 model Tess in a recent interview.
