This Web site is a modest encomium for the most dazzling rising star in the world of film and fashion.
Christina Schmidt is a 19-year-old Canadian plus-size model and actress whose beauty, confidence, and talent have earned her professional acclaim, and have made her a role model for a generation of full-figured girls.
Miss Schmidt initially won fame playing plus-size model Terri MacGregor on the television series, Degrassi: The Next Generation. Her understated and sensitive portrayal earned her the award for “Best Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama)—Supporting Young Actress,” at the 2005 Young Artist Awards in Los Angeles.
In a case of life imitating art, Miss Schmidt has recently become a plus-size model herself. She headlined the Fall 2007 campaign for MXM, and has shot extensively for Torrid.com. She appears in the Fall/Winter 2009 campaign for Nygård, and stars as one of the professional runway models in the new 2010 program How To Look Good Naked Canada.
Christina, who wears a dress size 14, is represented for fashion and print modelling by B&M Models in Toronto, Canada.
This site currently offers seven galleries of Christina’s most remarkable modelling images, as well as a scan of Christina’s official Wilhelmina comp card. Visitors can also read a profile of the actress, based on an original interview from November, 2004.
Most exciting of all is Miss Schmidt’s new one-minute promotional video for Wilhelmina. This is the first time fans have been able to see Christina in any kind of motion picture since Degrassi, and she looks more gorgeous than ever.
