NFL Football Player and Plus Size Model Break Stereotypes for Sensual Editorial in PLUS Model Magazine
PLUS Model Magazine Publishes ‘No Limits’ Editorial Featuring Former Atlanta Falcons Football Player Ray Edwards and Plus Model Tiffany Bank
PLUS Model Magazine (PMM), plusmodelmag.com, the #1 plus size fashion and beauty magazine, has never been afraid to push the envelope and represent beautiful, stylish and empowering plus women in their editorials and fashion spreads. In the October ‘Love Your Body’ issue, Reality Show Star and Plus Model Tiffany Bank, along with Ray Edwards, Former Atlanta Falcons Football Player, Model and Boxer heat up the pages in ‘No Limits’, a sensual, artistic editorial.
“PLUS Model Magazine is a celebration of women and their curves,” shares Madeline Jones, PMM Editor-in-chief. “I am honored that we can share Tiffany’s artistic vision of bringing this beautiful and poignant editorial to life in our ‘Love Your Body’ issue. Her work with Ray speaks volumes to our readers, and I am very proud of all that she has accomplished in breathing life into this project.”
“I did this to give people the opportunity to see what they are afraid to see or haven’t seen in mainstream media,” shares Ms. Bank. “Images like this of liberation, acceptance, and celebration redefine the ideals of beauty.”
Mr. Edwards, understanding the scope and depth of the project, shared, “I decided to be a part of this project because I believed in Tiffany’s vision. It represents thinking outside the boundaries of what society perceives beauty to be. It also promotes being comfortable in your own skin, no matter your shape, size, or background. No matter who you are, you are beautiful!”
Ms. Bank closes in saying, “I won’t tell you what I see. I want this to speak to you how it’s meant to speak to you. But just know that each image was on purpose and the overall message is one of inclusion and liberation. I got tired of waiting for someone in charge to make the decision to be different… so I made it happen for myself. The conversation needs to happen & things may get weird but change won’t happen unless things get a little uncomfortable.
The photos will be on display, and available for purchase, during the No Limits exhibit in NYC on Friday, October 4th, 2013 Location: 96 Lafayette Street, NYC Doors open at 11pm FREE before midnight, $10 thereafter.
