In a recent post about the Spring/Summer 2005 campaign from French retailer Giani Forte, we noted that the campaign featured a stunningly exotic plus-size model, but we had no idea what her identity might be, or if she had any representation.
Well, now we know the answers to both of those questions.
Her name is Anabelle, a Parisian model represented by Agence Plus (linked below), which is France's first plus-exclusive modelling agency. Anabelle is the most remarkable talent at Agence Plus by far, and a significant departure in the ingenue direction from the more lifestyle-oriented girls who comprise the rest of the agency's boad.
According to international conversion charts, Anabelle, who stands 5'11, wears a size 12 on top, and a pant size 16. (It is the latter measurement that qualifies her as a true plus-size model.)
But her wild beauty speaks for itself.
It will be interesting to see if Anabelle ever makes an appearance on this side of the Atlantic. But regardless, it is encouraging to see Paris, the traditional home of contemporary fashion, finally making a showing in the world of plus-size beauty.
