#BEYou

‪#‎WOW‬ She was reported on Social Media..
Meet one of the @FullFiguredFierce ‪#‎brandambassadors‬ @Shopaholickj aka Krystle Nicole. This photo was reported apparently because she is in her bra. I see all types of things on social media it CAN’T BE the bra. People are a mess. We ♡♡♡ this photo and it will be one of our featured photos for our ‪#‎WEDECLAREWAR‬ CAMPAIGN. It’s a ‪#‎Curvy‬ ‪#‎Queen‬ in a bra… GET OVER IT. Is that the problem or is it that she is confident enough to rock this? It doesn’t matter either way. She rocks and We LOVE & SUPPORT HER! 100000% and check out her feature in @curvyconnect magazine this month

Monique Gaines: Changing Her Stars

Greetings Beautifuls…

How have you been? We have missed you dearly. Lots of things going on and we will talk about all that soon including showing off our Full Figured Fierce Professional Model of the Month. Can’t wait for you to meet her..

But right now, I want to take the time to show some love to our models who represent Full Figured Fierce with the utmost class, style and grace. We lovingly call them   THE RUNWAY KILLERS

Our First spotlight is on our beautiful Petite Plus Model, Monique Gaines. We first met this Beauty at our very first Full Figured Fierce Anniversary fashion show in March of 2015. She hadn’t thrown her hat onto the runway yet.. but that soon changed. One of our fabulous sponsors were giving away a pair of concert tickets to an upcoming Anthony Hamilton concert. Now, listen, I don’t know too many women who didn’t want to be there. So in true fashion show form, we had a walk off. Well, Ms. Monique was not about to leave that show without those tickets. She gave a strut so fierce that made the audience cheer so loud… that I had to come from backstage to see what was happening. See for yourself…

Yep… THAT HAPPENED. That was me in the black dress going to find out who this queen was who just destroyed my runway. ONE.. somebody needed to pay for the damages.. and TWO I needed her on the team. We recruited her that night. A few weeks later, Monique invested in herself and came to our Walk Like Her Model and Confidence Class. She built her confidence, showed us that WINNING personality, perfected her walk.. and Changed Her Stars. That was just over a year ago. Since then… THIS happened..

moCYN

Yep.. she has walked for such designers as Shelia Lee, Blushing Hem, DJ Queendom, Echt Clothing, AJ Bischoff, Willette Prism, Model Haven Boutique, Classic Maven Boutique, and Belk. And not only has she walked for Full Figured Fierce but  Alabama Fashion Week 2016  and Confessions of a Goddess in Orlando Florida hosted by none other than the Queen Cynthia Bailey.

Don’t believe you can change your stars.. think again. Monique is the prime example of what a little hard work, determination and FAITH IN YOURSELF can do. So, Queens.. tell me.. How will you CHANGE “YOUR” STARS?

Check out some of the fabulous photos from Monique’s year…

Full Figured Fierce : Model of the Month April

Greetings Beautifuls…

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!

Be sure to follow Courtney on Facebook and  Instagram. But in the meantime, check out an uber collection of her photos.
