Yea, She still models it just that it seems she’s booking less than what she was before, I’m not sure. Or maybe the gigs are not as high profile so maybe her fans/supporters don’t see her work much as before.
Her latest editorial that’s been published so far is for Marie Claire Italia September 2013.
She walked the runway for Zac Posen for his Spring 2014 collection for New York Fashion Week last yr. She seem like she is just enjoying life. I follow her on instagram, Her instagram is @therealsessilee You can view her life on there, She’s very active on there.
“All three of us models are very successful in our careers, but because in the fashion industry ‘there’s only one black girl allowed’, they’ve made us compete to be that one girl. Beyoncé allowed us to show the world that we don’t have to fight against each other. She gave us the chance to see that we [black models] are far more powerful together.”—Chanel Iman about her breakthrough feature on the ‘Yoncé’ video with Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn (via adoringbeyonce)
Opinions on Jourdan Dunn becoming the face of Mayballine?
Oh wow! I had no clue she’s the new face of Maybelline. Thanks for telling me! I’m happy for her. It makes me wonder Mhhhmmm.. Does this mean that Jessica White is no longer a spoke model for Maybelline. If so it doesn’t surprise me, because she’s been with the company for awhile, and i know she’s trying to pursue a music career. I’m truly happy for Jourdan, I feel like being the spoke model will help her career, help her be more of a household name, just for the fact she will be associated with a brand that outreach to a wide variety of women.
i want to be a model but i am not skinny . i am not overweight i am a size 9. so can i be a plus size model
Yeah, I think you can still do plus size modeling. Plus models are generally 5’8” to 6’ in height, and wear a size 10 and up. But some thing I’ve notice with some plus size models aren’t really plus size. Its like they are just bigger than the average high fashion/commercial model, but they are not really “plus size” but compare to size 2 girls they are consider plus size. Because generally here where I’m from (US) plus size clothing starts with a size 14 or 16, I think.
I remember reading a interview plus size model Marquita Pring stated that there’s been times where she’s been asked to wear padding to appear bigger, because she’s in between sizes.
So I would say contact an agency with a plus size division, see what they say.
Also here are few links, that can possible provide you more info than I can share. I hope it helps you out more.
Well the most common way people become models are going to a open call for a agency, if the agency like what they see in you, They will offer you a contract to sign with their agency. Once you sign the contract, the agency take you under their wings; coach and guide you to a modeling career. Tell you if you need to work on any physical appearance, losing weight, or changing hair style etc. Set up test shoots for you, send you on casting calls for gigs. Once you start going through that process, I’ll say you are official living the model life.
