A few months ago modeling agency Models 1+ teamed up with Slink (plus size magazine) for an instagram model search to find a new plus size model for their plus size division.
Over 5000 women entered the model search and a winner was recently announced.
Simone Charles is a 20 year old, size 18 beauty who beat out thousands of models to win the sociable modeling competition. Simone, is now signed to Models 1+ and will grace the August cover of SLiNK magazine. She is also the face and body of the new luxury denim line Beauty in Curves.
There’s no time like the present to be a plus size model. According to the Models 1+ rep, “There has never been a better time to be a curvy model. Demand for our curvy girls just keeps growing and it is not just the size 12, 14 and 16’s that in are in demand, brands are looking for size 18 and 20 curves. We were so impressed by the calibre of girls that made it through to the final and we really look forward to developing Simone’s modeling career”.
