We think it’s great that Ford Models is recognizing the beauty and marketability of the plus size woman. Ford+ is holding its first plus size open call in over a decade. That’s a long time coming, seeing the average size of women has been 12-16 for over the last ten years.
Ford Models is famous for launching the successful careers of Crystal Renn (pictured left); who is no longer a featured plus size model after her weight loss last year, Ashley Graham (pictured above), and now Kaela Humphries (pictured below), who is sister to Kris Humphries, ex Husband of Kim Kardashian. Just to name a few.
Ford Plus division has teamed up with Vogue it blogger Beniamino Marini to aid in the search that will be held on May 5, 2012 in New York city. We hope you can attend!
Aspiring models, must meet the following criteria for consideration.
Please bring at least one non-professional head shot and one full-length body shot (they will not be returned to you).
The search will be held at Tribeca Skyline Studios, 205 Hudson Street, at Canal Street, in the penthouse, on Saturday, May 5, 2012 from 10am-2pm. Promptness is a must. The line will close at 1:30pm, and no one will be seen after 2pm for the general search. If chosen for a call back, you will be given a pass which allows you to return for the call back between 3pm and 4pm that day.
