The partnership arose from both brands’ belief in and mission to promote female empowerment. Simply Be and America’s Next Top Model want to encourage women to seek out personal empowerment to achieve their goals in a big way.

In addition to sponsoring this coming cycle of America’s Next Top Model, Simply Be has also collaborated with 6 amazing figures in the plus size and blogging communities.

Making a guest appearance on the show to issue a Simply Be challenge is the lovely Whitney Thompson, who was the show’s first plus size model to win on the show!

They have also collaborated with plus size model Tess Holliday as well as curvy fashion bloggers Ty Alexander, Monique Frausto, Kristine Thompson, and Kelly Augustine to share their thoughts on what it means to be empowered.
