It’s a GLORIOUS Day in the Land of Fierce… We hope you had a Fantastic week.. We sure did. We have beautiful contestants for the Fierce Face of the Month contest.. I’m so glad we don’t have to pick a winner..
But one job that I am glad to have is to announce our BEAUTIFUL PROFESSIONAL FULL FIGURED FIERCE MODEL Of the MONTH. Meet the Absolutely AMAZING Courtney Buchanan.
I met this gorgeous Queen this past month at our 4 year anniversary celebration. She twirled and like Liris and slayed Tyra!! She is one of my new favorite people. Meet Queen Courtney.
So Beautiful, tell us where you’re from. I’m Courtney Buchanan from Atlanta, G.
How long have you been modeling? 1 year
You have a very unique look, tell us what made you decide to go purple? It was casual brainstorm with my stylist that quickly turned into reality! We were literally bouncing ideas off of each other when she suggested purple. I said keep it classy and let’s do it! So we started with purple and built on that for the last 2 years or so. I think we have perfected the blend with the current colors!
It’s Extremely beautiful.. We love it. Who are some of the designers or boutiques you have worked for over the last year ? I’ve worked with Lavender’s Jungle, Shun Melson, Classic Maven Boutique, Geek Junky, Fluff Couture, Thiq Boutique, & Livi Rae Lingerie just to name a few.
That’s amazing. Lavender’s Jungle was my big break as well.. I simply LOVE them. So, tell us, with all the talk of what we should be labeled, how do you feel about the term “ Plus Size”? Does it bother you or empower you? Honestly, “plus size” is just a label to me and labels don’t effect me like that.
We LOVE that. If you could do one thing in this industry, be it ,work with a designer, walk in a show, what would it be? The one goal I had when I began modeling was to leave a mark on the industry in a significant way and I am working toward it everyday!
Yess Maam, you most certainly are. Is there anything you would change about the industry as a whole? I feel like there is always room for improvement and the modeling industry is no different.
In 5 years, where do you see yourself in this industry? The opportunities are endless! What I do know is that whatever I am doing I will be giving it 100% of me!
Amen to that.. If you aren’t giving your very best, what’s the point, right?
So what are your 3 “MUST HAVES” in your model bag? Things you can’t live without? I always have a large bottle of water, black pumps and MAKEUP! No model should ever be anywhere without her makeup!
What’s next for the Beautiful Courtney? You never know where I will be next! Stay tuned!!!
We definitely will be keeping our eyes on your career, Courtney. Thank you for allowing us to chat with you for a second. We wish you nothing but the absolutely best of luck.. Can’t wait to see you Shine!
