After all the New Year's Resolution-type blogging lately (my own included), it's great to get back to a story involving people being happy in their skin whatever their shape or size. A huge round of applause to the fabulous future model for Plus-Size-Tall.com and you can go along and cheer them on, if you're free and in the right district ! More info in the press release below :
It's not over ! The race continues as fifteen beautiful ladies pick out their favourite jeans and dresses to seduce the judges. Meeting at the Avalon London on 15th Jan. will be our fifteen finalists + a professional panel ready to pick out the final winner and send her off to Las Vegas to take part in The Curvy Revolution ! Amongst the panel are stars of the plus size scene such as Sue Thomason (editor of Beautiful), Lauren Darling (editor of blog Pocket Rocket), Rianne Ward (editor of Evolve magazine) and a member of Hughes modelling agency and Evans team.
The show will take place in two steps. After having their hair and make-up done by beauticians, the finalists must first show the panel that they can look just as good in jeans and a white tee as they do all dressed up. Then, they will be asked to slip on their favourite Evans outfit to show the panel how well it suits them - and the catwalk! The lucky finalists have all received a £100 voucher to take their pick. The ladies will of course spend their afternoon on over 2" heels - a task they will face with a little help from a high heel expert ;-)
It will most certainly be difficult for the judges to take their pick amongst these highly motivated models. They will carefully listen to the candidates introduce themselves and explain why they think they should be sent to model at The Curvy Revolution, Las Vegas . They will of course also take into account how comfortable each candidate is on their heels and walking up and down a catwalk in front of an audience. Whatever it takes, there will be only one final winner !
On this special occasion, our sponsor Evans will be showcasing some beautiful clothes from their latest collection - chocolate for the eyes or maybe even an idea of what to buy with the finalists' Evans vouchers!
Plus-Size-Tall.com's mission is to encourage all initiatives making plus size fashion more visible. This is why the British website Plus-Size-Tall.com has chosen to partner with the American event The Curvy Revolution.

According to Thibault Masson, chief editor of Plus-Size-Tall.com, « this model search fits our goal to make plus size fashion more visible. The rise of plus size fashion is truly global, as the Curvy Revolution in Las Vegas and our own plus size model search in the UK show. More than 6 million women in the UK are « plus-size », wearing a size 18. It's only natural for our online magazine to help so many women find fashionable clothing».
After a great event of the sam e nature in France , Plus-Size-Tall.com is hoping to receive a warm welcome in the UK where Plus Size fashion is a raging trend. The event on Saturday January 15th champions plus size women in a week where Lorrraine Kelly also launched her Curvy model search on ITV.
