At just 5'5", Tess Holliday is significantly shorter than most of today’s fashion models. But it’s not the Los Angeles resident’s height that’s causing such a buzz. Holliday wears a size 22, whereas plus-size models in the industry traditionally wear sizes 8 to 16. Now London-based Milk Model Management has signed 29-year-old Holliday, making her the largest plus-size fashionista to ever land a major modeling contract. It’s a sweet reward for the tattooed stunner who was bullied in school and gets plenty of modern-day hate on social media for her appearance. Click through to see how Holliday's confidence and gorgeous good looks (those eyebrows!) are upending society's body-shaming messages.
