Tess Munster To Get Major Contract
The 29-year-old Tess Munster, who was named one of the top plus-sized models in the world by Vogue Italia and Refinery 29, started the movement #EffYourBeautyStandard to encourage other women to celebrate their bodies, no matter their shape.
At 5-foot-5, Holliday, real name Tess Munster, doesn’t fit into the mold of traditional plus-size models, who might typically be a few inches taller and be between sizes 8 and 16.
This move makes her the first plus size model of her size (22) and height (5’5″) to be signed to an agency. We always hear readers ask for more diversity in the modeling industry and more visibly plus models. Tess Munster represents diversity and many plus size women identify with her.
