Plus Size Role Models

By Emma Cossey - 24 Jul 2009
The beauty and fashion industry upholds a variety of celebrities as ‘role models’ for young women. Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Jordan and Twiggy are all hailed as inspirational. What about a role model for those of us over a size 12? Luckily we do have some plus size ladies who set examples to aspire to.

Charlotte Coyle
Charlotte is a plus-sized model from Northern Ireland, who does more than strut the catwalk. Charlotte recently came up with the concept for “Fat Beauty Contest” a channel 4 documentary for Britain’s first beauty contest for plus-sized women.

Queen Latifah
Queen Latifah is not only an Acadamy Award nominated actor, but also an accomplished musician, model and presenter. She has been the celebrity spokesperson for Covergirl Cosmetics, and Curvation ladies underwear. Her popularity is proof that fitting into a sample size is not the only requirement to continues success.

The lady who requires no second name is not only a role model for plus size ladies, but also for women in general. Oprah has been open about her struggle with maintaining a steady weight, and has recently graced the cover of her own magazine ‘O’ admitting a weight gain from 160 lbs to 200 lbs. However, weight issues have not held her back, and she has a huge empire including a TV show, radio show, magazine, Broadway musical and has helped launch the careers of Dr. Phil McGraw and Rachael Ray.

Mia Tyler
Recognise the surname? Mia comes from a family filled with celebrity royalty, including her half sister Liv Tyler and her Dad, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. Mia is primarily a plus size fashion model and designer, but has also appeared in several TV programs and films. Mia has come from a difficult background including eating disorders and drug issues, but now concentrates on promoting a healthy body acceptance.
