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:

Here to brighten up your Sunday timeline with lewks and a story 🙋🏾‍♀️ On Friday, I was about ready to run away from it all. Emails. Folks messaging me with nonsense. Having to deal with book tour stuff. I was irritable and didn’t want people talking to or looking at me. I took a good ole depression nap and woke up with such a bad headache. “I’m leaving!” I told myself. I started looking up rental cars to go somewhere, anywhere. But no rentals were available. I slammed the laptop, wondering how the hell I was going to get away with no whip. The next day, I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any work or social media for 24 hours (we gonna start small. It’s hard 🤷🏽‍♀️). And that all of the work can wait. I asked me, “what would you like to do today?” I took an almost 2-hour train ride by myself to Coney Island and with my rolling luggage, I created editorial images in the amusement park, I ate chicken fingers and fried Oreos, I got my fat ass on not one but three scary rides (I’ll make a post later about how to navigate amusement parks as a fat person). One was a rollercoaster, bitch, that almost took my hijab straight off 😂 I took my shoes off and walked on the beach. I watched the sunset. I found a random party on the boardwalk, parked my luggage, and danced with strangers. I’m proud of myself because I get anxious going places I’ve never been alone. But I did it anyway. I had fun. I was spontaneous. I went on an adventure. And was my own company. Have you ever felt the need to just “run away”? What do you do when you are just overstimulated and overwhelmed? What solo adventures have you embarked on? Let’s chat. P.S. Can’t wait to show y’all these fire pics! #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #wamfam #editorial #hijabi #beautyblogger #covergirl #monochromatic
