Size 22 plus size model Tess Holliday made the cover of People
Magazine June 2015 issue.
Tess, who was bullied for being plus size when she was a teen,
is the only plus size model of her size to have a modeling contract, she is
signed to top modeling agency MILK.  In
an interview Tess said about being bullied: ‘I was getting
shoved into lockers, I was being called names. I was getting death threats at
my house. It was awful”.

The 5’5, 280 lbs., tattooed model is taking the fashion world
by storm. She told People magazine “’I just got back from London three weeks ago.
I’m going to New York this week, then next week I’m going to Montreal and New
York again. Then I go to Seattle, New Orleans and Vegas after that, all for
work!’

She
recently worked with plus size brands such as Benefit cosmetics, Torrid and
Monif C. just to name a few, and she has a swimwear line in the works.

Tess was always told that she was too short to model but she
never gave up on her dream of becoming a model.

Congratulations Tess!!
