Candice Huffine på omslaget till ELLE USA Swimsuit Issue

"For as long as I can remember, I dreamt of being a model. Anytime there was an opportunity to write down my future goals in class it was "move to New York City and become a fashion model"". Detta skriver Candice Huffine tillsammans med bilden där hon pryder omslaget på ELLE USA swimsuit issue som kommer ut i maj.

Samtidigt skriver Candice att det har varit gånger då hennes storlek inte passat in i branschen men att hon vägrat ge vika för ideal och måttstockar. Att hon nu få vara på omslaget till ett av de mest lästa numren av ELLE hoppas hon "kan vara en symbol för alla som tror på att de kan, är eller kommer bli precis vad de vill".

Kurviga modeller som Candice Huffine, Ashley Graham och Emma Sander tar över omslag, modevisningar och reklamkampanjer allt mer. Förra året var det Ashley Graham som prydde omslaget till Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue och i år är det alltså Candice som visar upp sina grymma curves på omslaget till ELLE  - sida vid sida med svenska Elsa Hosk, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Jas Tooks och Maria Borges.

 

 

For as long as I can remember, I dreamt of being a model. Anytime there was an opportunity to write down my future goals in class it was "move to New York City and become a fashion model". There was no plan B for me. So my body type wasn't ideal measurements, minor detail. 😉 I refused to be told I couldn't become what I had always imagined and committed myself to working tirelessly for the day when my size wouldn't dictate my possibility. I hope this cover can serve as a symbol for anyone who believes they can, that they are, that they will be. If you wake up every morning and can think of nothing but your dream, follow it and never stop. I am honored and so thrilled to share with you the cover of @elleusa!! Proud to be alongside @bellahadid, @jastookes, @hoskelsa, @iammariaborges, and @haileybaldwin, proving there’s no single definition of beauty.
