Name’s Leah V. and I’m the creator of the style blog, Beauty and the Muse. The idea popped into my head one day when I was browsing through one of the many social networks in the wee hours of the morning (around eight o’clock). Eureka! I write. I love taking photos and posing and feeling pretty. And I can showcase my style and help inspire others to feel beautiful, too. So why not combine creative writing and my love of fashion to create a flow of channels combining juices of everything imaginative—concrete and abstract.

I don’t know why I’m so nervous. But, I am. You get to see the @simplybeuk ad here before it’s aired on TV right before the show X Factor tomm. Me. My face. On a whole ass commercial. I’m a bit at lost for what this all means to be apart of the #morethanourbodies campaign, but I just want to share this. I was 13. Bigger than all the other girls my age. Clothes for plus-size folks were nonexistent. On top of that, Mom was a single mother of 5. She hadn’t had the funds. I was frumpy. Some ppl had mistaken me for a boy. My confidence down the drain. Mom put my younger brother in modeling. He was half Black, half Algerian. Everyone said he’d do good modeling because of his looks. I used to watch ANTM. I knew how to smize. Knew all the moves and poses. I sat in the audience watching all the models. Watching my brother not do very well on stage. I could do that, I told myself. I wanted to ask Mom so badly to let me do it, let my try. But, after seeing the others, I noticed that none of them looked like me. That world wasn’t for me. And, if I ever wanted to be involved in fashion, then I’d have to style people thinner than me, taller, more proportionate. On set, I was the shortest girl. The biggest in size. The unsigned underdog of the group. But, I earned my spot as the first fat, Black, and very Muslim model to land a major campaign with a retailer in Europe. I’m not sure y’all understand how major this is. How I’ve never had anyone who looked like me tell me it was okay to be unapologetic. How that little Muslim girl is told no, no, no. With my body, I am telling her yes, fuck yes. And, I’m telling you yes! You are valid, your dreams valid. After you gas me 😂 answer this: who in your life gave you permission to be yourself unapologetically, and how? #ad #detroitblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #effyourbeautystandards #girlboss #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #streetstyle #feminist #fatacceptance #psootd #seventeen #turbanista #honormycurves #bodydysmorphia #instabeauty #intersectionalfeminism #fashionblogger #simplybe #eatingdisorderrecovery #editorial #hijabi
