images “The World of Velvet d’ Amour” By Leah Vernon

I was looking up different plus-size fashion models and stumbled upon this crazy B! I looked up some pictures of her. I saw some amazing stuff that I’d never seen before. I kept gasping and saying to myself, “Oh, no, she didn’t!” Let me tell you. This chick is bad! And it’s not even a “plus-size” or a “skinny” model thing, it’s a healthy and confident thing. Not only does she take amazing shots, but they are artistic and fierce.

Velvet d’ Amour is from New York and first came on the scene in 2006 making a grand catwalk entrance in John Galliano’s “Everybody is Beautiful” show. She was 5’8 and 300 pounds.

D’Amour is a fashion photographer (Velvetography.com) and has started her own magazine ( Vol-Up-2) showcasing lots of plus-size models and photographers.

She has big hair, even bigger boobs, and a huge fan base. Take a look at some of my favorite shots below:

I got a letter in the mail telling me that I no longer have health insurance. I need allergy shots. Glasses. My yearly physical. My monthly birth control pills. And I was going to enroll in therapy because I need it again. I did break down this morning. But, I will not allow life’s inconveniences to break me fully. But instead mold me. Because with hardship is ease. Because pain is temporary. Because things are falling apart for a reason, a grander scheme and I have to move with it or get crushed in the process. I arrived home last night, and my former roomie took me to get tacos. It was so nice to catch up. I explained to him the woes of moving from his cushy home. That it was a mistake to leave. Because I’ve been going through it. I told him that I’ve cried more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. He said, “When you first moved with me after your divorce, you were in a similar situation. You got through that. How can you get through this?” He was right. I had gotten through that. I thought back to what I did. I know I cried a lot. I beat myself up. Told myself that I should’ve been okay being abused emotionally and whatever else he was doing. That I deserved to be battered because I was a bar person. I also submerged myself into creating. Videos and makeup and stories and narrative and I posted all of that here. That’s how I wrote my whole book. The one that’s being published in October. It wasn’t about money or popularity. I was creating because it felt right. It gave me something to do. What has been that one thing that has always saved you in times of desperation? What’s your motto for when messed up things happen back to back?
