PLUS Model Magazine (PMM), plus-model-mag.com, inspiring the style-savvy, fashion-forward, full-figured woman to embrace her curves, is shooting fresh-faced newcomer, Arissa, for the spring cover and editorial of PMM, during a photo shoot happening in New York this up-coming weekend.
“Arissa is a beautiful young woman, who is poised to take the plus size fashion industry by storm, comments Madeline Jones, Editor-in-Chief. “Her parents, Kelly LeBrock and Steven Seagal, may be household names, but from what I have seen of Arissa so far, she has the looks, talent and charm to hold her own in this competitive industry.”
As the daughter of a former Vogue cover model and sex symbol, as well as an action-hero father, this young talent has big shoes to fill. “All my life I’ve been around celebrities,” shares Arissa. “As a little girl, I would always dress up and perform in front of people and by the age of five I was showing up to breakfast in full hair and makeup!”
As is the case with many young girls, learning to embrace your body in a society that is not always kind can be a challenge. “As I reached puberty, I started to get ‘those’ curves, comments Arissa. “Having a supportive mother, I was proud to be a vivacious, curvy woman, as she taught me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. When I didn’t always feel that way, I would remind myself of my mother’s words. Now, at age twenty, I am healthy, happy, curvy and am going to New York to pursue my dreams.”
“Arissa has the right attitude and focus to make her dreams come true and in the process inspire other young women to do the same,” comments Jones. “Keep your eye on where this young talent is headed.”
