L.A. is notoriously known for their stereotypes of the â€œThin is inâ€ mentality- yet something is in the air in Southern Caliâ€¦
Although you cannot drive down the 60, 10, or 15 freeways without the Lap Band ads knocking you on the head or the commercials with the Lap Band jingle, the plus size women of LA and its surrounding areas sift through this noise- tuning into the channels of positive body imagery- the kind that both Whitney Thompson and Chenese Lewis have recently shot – in the nude!
Chenese Lewis collaborated with 2010 Love Your Body Day host, Whitney Thompson in a beautiful and confidence oozing shot by the talented Inez Lewis.
What is Love Your Body Day?
Last year I attended an inspirational event of dancing, fashion, and women who oozed style, confidence, and panache- all rising to the challenge of loving their body. And that they did. This year, Chenese is challenging societal views to illustrate the beauty of women of all colors, shapes and sizes with a jam-packed three day weekend of festivities!
Americaâ€™s next Top Model Winner, Whitney Thompson, comes aboard as this yearâ€™s host of the fashion show and main event taking place Saturday, October 23rd at West Hollywood Park Auditorium at 647 N. San Vicente in West Hollywood from 12-4 pm.
Admission to Saturdayâ€™s event is free and open to the community. Will I see you there?
I am the Editor in Chic of The Curvy Fashionista. Often goofy. Forever emo. Always a Virgo. You can find me somewhere grooving to 90s R&B.
