|Top Plus size model Ms Cherry Red Rachy|
As a mature alternative woman who is also interested in fashion I describle my fashion sense as ROCK N ROLL QUEEN. There is no reason as one matures, to ignore the faithfullness to ones style. However age does dictate an appropriateness required.
Most definiately. Women of age and size are shockingly under represented in the mainstream - as is ANY alternative fashion.
I love designers .. Jean Paul Gaultier would be dramatic and fun... Michael Kors would be interesting and appropriate. Ben De Lisi would produce a stunningly beautiful gown... Vivienne Westwood would have fun clashing with my style.. however... the late great Alexander McQueen would probably have encapsulated my personality and my curves.
I have seen little of the world so anywhere would be greatfully received - although I would like to visit the Americas first. Friends in Texas and Florida would be sooo excited :)
Im a challange even to myself. I have found my niche late in life after a difficult childhood and aimless wanderings. I am fiercely loyal, sarcastic and funny. I enjoy the solitude of my own company and love to cook, draw and decorate. I am a strong believer in doing what is right - no matter the cost. Animal lover with a penchant for Terry Pratchett books and costume drama TV and a collection of over 200 pairs of shoes.
The fashion world is changing - but far too slowly. The idea that a 'plus sized' model is a size 14 (the national average) still grates at me. I am not dissing the more slender models but.... ALL SIZES should be represented AND labelled correctly.... starting IMMEDIATELY... and if JPG can use BBW models on his runways, so can everyone else.
Attitude.... quite simply put.... if you have the presence to be photogenic or lucky enough to be able to walk.. your natural talent WILL take you so far. A good model will be easy to work with, pleasant to converse with, amenable to difficult situations, focused, creative PATIENT and controlled.
My sleeping attire..... I have a penchant for sleeping in t shirts and boy shorts....
The banter... when on set we are ALL equal..I love talking to the make up artists and hairdressers, lighting techs and the photographer.
HAHAHAH. ;)p .. in all honesty... my eyes.... I can use them to draw people into an image.
Im addicted.... nuff said :)
My friends Shelley and Danella (and a quick mention to my ex husband Sid.. still my best friend)
I couldnt possibly keep it to just four... :)
Guns and Roses still moves me even after 20 years... im currently obsessing about a group called the Black Veil Brides....
Trust me - the worst is unpublishable....
Women dont walk (a certain way) for women - we should celebrate men strong enough to embrace both the masculine and the feminine AND convey themselves to teach.
Man in a thong??!!!!!!!!! noooooooooo - lol... I personally prefer briefs.. nice... tight... black.... cough - anyone got some water - Im feeling a little flushed ;)
Sadly the choices are not such that I have many to choose from. Velvet D'Amour and Tess Munster would most definitely feature.
You cant go wrong with suspenders and stockings under a LBD...... as for food..... I do an amazing moroccan roast lamb..roasted veggies and red wine followed by amaretto infused chocolate mousse... YUM.
DONT GET SUCKED INTO PORN
I hate bullys and sometimes standing up to them you have to be a little hard.. inevitably there are two sides to every argument and I have been accused of being a bully myself. This is one of the most untrue things ever said about me. I have a strong personality but I most certainly do not go out of my way to hinder people for my own satisfaction..... quite the reverse.
