This Model May Be "Plus Size," but This Campaign Is Not
Designer Sophie Theallet wasn't casting a plus-size campaign, but she didn't select your typical sample-size model. Instead, Theallet tapped the gorgeous Candice Huffine, who made headlines last year as the first-ever plus-size model to appear in the Pirelli Calendar. Since then, Candice has continued her rise to superstardom with her own plus-size clothing line and her spot in Lane Bryant's buzzy #ImNoAngelCampain.
This time, she's making headlines as the face of a "straight-size" campaign for good reason. Sophie's move to cast Candice simply because of who she is rather than what size she is is a huge step in redefining fashion industry norms. As the designer told CR Fashion Book: "There's only one Candice. She has all of this with an air of confidence, which I think is the key to being sexy. If you have that attitude and the freedom to be who you are, that is beautiful." We couldn't agree more!
