you feel about that?
first time I heard it I was humbled and scared. It’s a lot of pressure but I am
happy with what we are collectively doing for the plus size industry. I am humble
by it. Anna Wintour is at the top of the food chain when it comes to fashion
and if I can be a little piece of what she is than I am really happy about
