Fat chics RULE


In a world where plus size models are size 10s and 12s,Ms Velvet D'Amor is such a breath of fresh air....

She has broken size barriers in the modeling industry showing that FAT IS(and not 'can be') BEAUTIFUL by appearing in runway shows for Galliano and Gaultier.She has been condemed for her size with critics saying that she is the role model for a 'unhealthy lifestyler',when she is quite the contrary.



The fashion industry shuns women over a size 2,and for plus size over 12,Velvet is a 5'8,265llbs and size 28...She embraces every pound of it!Everything about this woman is amazing,and even in her early 40s she is still slaying the modeling world.Velvet is internationally known,paving the way for Toccara and other more realistic size women.



Who says fat chics cant be super models?



When asked 'Do you think you are encouraging other to adopt a fat lifestyle?'
'I find the notion utterly laughable. Having read one forum which stated, by Jean Paul (Gauthier) using me on the runway, we were ‘promoting’ obesity, I was left incredulous. Honestly, do you think the next day 8 year olds were powering down pizzas in vain attempts at emulating me?!'-Velvet d’Amour

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
