Model Tess Holliday gets a Major Modelling Contract
Tess Holliday, the model behind #effyourbeautystandards has become one of the largest women to sign a major modelling contract – big news! And of course, the beautiful lady deserves every second of her success!
Typical plus size models who tend to be around a size 12-16 are considerably smaller than Tess (at a size 22 and 5ft5 in height), so this is a big movement for the plus-size industry and plus-size women in general.
“I think we’re the only agency with a model of her size. She is by far the largest model I have in the [Curves] division,” said Anna Shillinglaw, the owner and director of MiLk Model Management, the agency that signed Holliday after seeing her on Instagram, to the Daily News.
So what does Tess herself have to save about the amazing news?
“I understand not everyone understands what I’m about. But to me it’s such a simple concept. It’s all about loving your body regardless of your size and chasing your dreams”
