french fries//french kiss

Though I style photo shoots here and there, I hardly consider myself a stylist. Still, I always have a million shoot ideas dancing in my head; plus size editorials are seriously lacking and there are so many cool concepts I'd like to see executed. In the rare case a fashion mag actually shoots plus size models or starlets, they're usually nude or horribly styled (and newsflash: styling curvy women in lingerie or 50s pinup clothing for the millionth time isn't fresh or innovative). Most recently, Carine styled Gabourey Sidibe for Harper's Bazaar and it was...tragic (more here if you haven't caught up on that yet).

Anyway, I often buy stuff I hope to use on models in future photo shoots, but lots of it ends up collecting dust. I fell in love with the Jeremy Scott x Adidas french fry bathing suit (eBay!) and the Miss Sixty lip print dress a couple years ago and thought I'd put together a pop art inspired editorial--it never happened. I've been staring at them again lately, so when my boyfriend and I were bored with way too much energy at 3 am, I decided I'd just put 'em on and we could have our own impromptu mini-shoot.

  1. Oh yes you did well with this photoshoot! I love the swimsuit! Yellow is a great color on you!
    Once again, Karl Lagerfeld just showed how much he hates plus size women with Gabourey Sidibe!

  6. it's been a long time fantasy of mine, imagining what a magazine would look like exclusively (and constantly) featuring plus size models. That would be amazing.

  12. Gorgeous photos! I agree with your comment on plus size editorials I also find that what mainstream magazines often constitute as plus size is completely misguided (i.e a slim size 12 as a +size is ridiculous!)

  15. Large size ladies these days have a lot to be thankful for specially when it comes to selecting their dresses and fashion. In fact, Shopping for large size womens clothing has never been easier as many stores and manufacturers are paying more attention to the need of them. Fashion and clothing manufacturers like Kita ku, including others, are doing a fantastic job in designing and making trendy plus size clothing that don't only fit the large size women well but also they have great fashion values. Finally, thank you for putting the list of the plus size clothing retailers in Australia. I am sure that the ladies will really benefit from your noble efforts.

  29. Smh @ the Gabourey Sidibe/Harper's Bazaar incident! I saw that and was appalled. I love the french fry swimsuit and your collection with Swim Suits For All. I agree with your opinions about plus size fashion. Now that the market is growing the next generation of innovators are sure to "TAKE IT THERE"
