There is no definition of perfection and should not be one because everybody is perfect in their way and style.
Beauty has no shape, and as diversity becomes an increasing focus in the fashion industry, so many plus-size models are becoming household names. These models have millions of fans on social media and appear on the runway, red carpet, and cover of magazines.
According to data taken by the ABS in 2016, the definition of a plus-size model might be surprising: in the fashion industry, plus-size models are defined as being those who are size eight and up, when in the real world, the average size of an Australian woman is a size 14-16.
Below, we present the top most famous plus-size models in the world.
Aussie model Kate Wasley rose to social media fame as one half of Instagram duo @any.body_co. She and her friend Georgia Gibbs share photos of themselves on social media to promote body positivity at any size. Now Kate is being recognized internationally, shooting for Sports Illustrated earlier this year. Their campaign encourages self-love and aims to empower women of all shapes and sizes.
American model Tara Lynn is most often shooting lingerie and swimwear campaigns. The 38-year-old mother has also graced the cover of international fashion magazines and has starred in campaigns for brands such as H&M.
As the first Black curve model to appear on the pages of American Vogue, Precious Lee is the personification of a leader. There are many aggressive believers in race and size diversity across the fashion, television, and film industry. Lee continues to transform the industry through her work as a model, actress, writer, and activist, with numerous campaigns under her belt for brands that include Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, and Fleur du Mal, a recent Italian Vogue cover, and a budding acting career.
