MEET THE SIZE 26, TATTOOED SUPERMODEL WHO IS CHANGING THE FASHION INDUSTRY- TESS HOLIDAY

Tess Holliday is one  of the biggest models on the planet – both  literally and metaphorically.

Last year, Tess became the first woman over a size 20 to be signed to a major modelling agency. Soon after, she graced the cover of People magazine.


‘The world’s first [US] size 22 supermodel!’ screamed the front page, her image dwarfing those of Charlize Theron and Salma Hayek, who had been relegated in importance to tiny puffs.

Her Instagram followers tipped the one million mark, more devotees to add to the legions of people who had responded to her #effyourbeautystandards campaign, which first launched her into the spotlight when she created the hashtag in 2012 as a way to show the middle finger to everyone who says you can’t be beautiful if you happen to be over a size 10.
She has since appeared in an H&M campaign alongside Iggy Pop, a shoot for Benefit Cosmetics, and created a clothing line with the Canadian brand Penningtons.

And this year she was named as one of the ‘30 most influential people on the internet’ by Time magazine, alongside Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian and JK Rowling.
