The Petite of the Week is Michele

PETITE OF THE WEEK



I met Michele at my book part for my graphic novel Model Life: The Journey of a Pint-Size Fashion Warrior, and this week Michele shares her thoughts on models of all sizes in the industry: "walked a fashion show last year and I am currently freelancing with Model Service Agency. I've been acting since I was 12 and recently decided to try my hand at modeling. As a petite and a plus size model, I face a double challenge. Lot's of people dream of modeling, and like many I've always believed you had to be superskinny or supertall. After some research, I've realized there is room for everybody from the glamazons to the average joes. I believe women of all sizes, shapes, and colors can be beautiful, glamourous and sexy. I love how the modeling industry is starting to embrace that. An example of that would be in the recent Size issue of V magazine featuring Crystal Renn. Hopefully, the industry will continue to embrace this concept."

Right on Michele, there is room for everybody and as long as you know how to market what you do have "height and size isn't everything", each week a Petite of the Week is featured on this blog, submit at petitepride@yahoo.com put Petite of the Week in the subject, with your headshot and how you are making strides despite height. :)
