PLUS Model Magazine Unveils Anniversary Issue with Cover Model Lizzie Miller, this Time WITH Clothes!
The Number One Plus Size Fashion Magazine Celebrates 5 Years in Virtual Print Featuring Plus Model Sensation Lizzie Miller
PLUS Model Magazine (PMM) unveils a sleek, new look in the July 2011, 5th Anniversary issue featuring plus cover model Lizzie Miller. Online continuously since July 2006, what started as a bi-monthly publication became a monthly staple helping to directly impact the growth and development of this multi-billion dollar industry. Five years later, PMM is thriving online with a broad following and readership, and was just named the ‘#1 Plus Size Fashion Magazine’ at Full Figured Fashion Week 2011 this past June in New York City.
Madeline Jones, PMM Editor and Co-Creator, knew just the plus model she wanted to grace the cover for this mild-stone anniversary. “Many got to know Lizzie Miller when she went from plus size model, to an International plus size sensation after appearing in the September 2009 issue of Glamour. The nude, un-retouched photo of her stomach caused a media frenzy as thousands of women responded to seeing a natural looking body in a woman’s magazine. Having personally followed Lizzie’s career since she began six years ago, I wanted the public to get to know another side of this dynamic beauty… this time with clothes!”
Valery Amador, PMM Creative Director and Co-Creator shares, “Maddy always puts together an entertaining ‘Behind the Scene’s video’ to give our readers a first-hand look at what it’s like to be onset during a shoot. Watching the footage of Lizzie for the July 2011 issue makes you understand exactly how professional, funny and yet down to earth this wonder-woman is!”
PLUS Model Magazine partnered with the number one Australian plus size brand, City Chic (citychiconline.com) for the anniversary issue. Jones shares, “City Chic is a brand that has stood behind us from the very beginning, and believed in our vision to provide plus size women not only beautiful fashions, but realistic images of body-types they could relate to.”
Over the past five years, PMM highlights have included features with:
America’s Next Model winner Whitney Thompson
Plus size icon Natalie Laughlin
And super-model Fluvia Lacerda
PMM appearances include the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency Show, CNN, Star Jones Show and more. In 2008, PLUS Model Radio and host Chenese Lewis hit the airwaves and now have the number podcast for plus size women on blog talk radio.
In addition, PLUS Model Magazine will be releasing a swimsuit supplement on July 15th, featuring some of today’s hottest models ranging from size 12 to 18. PMM’s commitment to bringing images that continue to inspire and feature a more realistic view of curves will be visualized in this ‘Sports Illustrated meets Vogue’ issue dedicated to it’s curvy readers.
