My friend Erica Young, founder of Madison Plus, shared a great video with me that her team produced in collaboration with Wilhelmina Models W Curve division. Plus-sized models have seen a boost recently with the ongoing backlash against anorexic models and the growing popularity of plus-sized beauty Crystal Renn. Crystal Renn may be rapidly becoming the face of curvy models, but as evidenced by this video, there's a lot of talent right on her heels.
The editorial was created, photographed and produced by Wilhelmina models Phillipa Allum, whose denim ensembles were kick-ass, and Becca Thorpe. In front of the camera are newcomers Jenny Dettner and Erika Demmer who flew all the way from Germany to participate in the shoot in hopes of landing a contract with the famed agency. They did. Good for them. For more information visit Madison Plus.
