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:

Y’all know I like to dance. For me, dancing is such a major form of body positivity. Especially because once I started gaining the majority of my weight, I swore off dancing in public because of my massive wiggles and jiggles. I didn’t want people to judge me, stare at the blob dropping it like it’s hot. One day, I decided to dance again. Just as unapologetically as the other girls on the dance floor. I decided to go dancing while in LA during my trip. I’m walking around the venue scoping out the scene, in search of the hypest dancers. I see a big girl, a fat girl in a group with her thinner counterparts all dressed in bodycon dresses. The plus-size gal was modest and wore a faux fur vest. She wasn’t dancing, either. I made my way to her at once, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I love the way you rock that vest.” She looked over her shoulder with surprise, shock. So, I said it again. Her eyes widened and the biggest smile ran across her big cheeks. The fat friend. I was the fat friend. I am the fat friend. Who was picked over in a group of thinner women to be hit on, to be asked out, to be complimented. Invisible was what I felt like. A compliment goes a long way for marginalized bodies from very big to very thin. Have you ever felt invisible or the odd one around a certain group of friends or felt insecure? Also, do you compliment others? When’s the last time you’ve received a compliment? Any body type can chime in.
