Bullies Said She Was Too ‘Fat’ To Be A Model… But Look At Her Now.

She might look like an effortless pro in these photographs, but plus size model Tess Holliday has worked really hard to get where she is today. Bullied in high school, she dropped out and eventually moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of modeling, even though everyone told her she couldn't because of her size.

However, Holliday persevered, and over the last few years has gone from relative no-name to becoming the first size 22 plus size model to ever be signed to a major agency. This gorgeous woman's story is truly inspiring, and her presence in the fashion world proves that the size of your body doesn't have to determine the trajectory of your career. Check out her stunning photographs below.
