Griselangel

Posted in Beauty, Plus Model Spotlight on December 16, 2010 by miaamber

I’m trying out a new kind of post in an effort to introduce you to some new faces in the plus modeling industry while re-introducing you to some you may already know and love!

Introducing:  Griselangel.

I think she’s stunning and would LOVE to watch her unique, doll-like looks skyrocket her into the fashion stratosphere the vein of Supermodel Lily Cole.

Grisel and I are with the same agency in New York and she’s not only beautiful on the outside, she’s a really nice person, too!

XOXO,

Mia

Takes me back to my days as a First Soprano in Mrs. Jackson’s chorus. 

Handel’s Messiah (aka, The Hallelujah Chorus) is the most fun and exhausting piece I have ever performed… In the words of Archie & Edith Bunker,”those were the days!”

Happy holidays, y’all!

XOXO,

Mia

If you’re looking for a surefire way to protect your curves this winter check out my old standby, “Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant.”

Once a year I buy a tube of it (about $17.50 at Macy’s) and it takes me all the way through the harsh NYC winters.  If your skin is in need of serious moisture you can slather on the Eight Hour Cream and sleep in some cotton socks and sweats.  In the morning your skin will feel like new.

Loves it!

If you have an old standby I’d love to hear about it!

XOXO,

Mia

Au Revoir, Renn…

If there were any doubts…I think it’s safe to say that with her two new editorials in the December/January 2011 issue of Vogue Paris (shot by Tom Ford and Terry Richardson) Crystal Renn has cemented her place in the high fashion world and has bid adieu to her career as a plus size model.
