Plus-Size Model Candice Huffine Signs With IMG

Plus-size models are officially in, and are taking the modeling industry by storm, with IMG Models being one of the leading agencies with this progression. 31-year-old Candice Huffine marks the latest addition to IMG’s repertoire, joining other leading ladies like Ashley Graham, Chelsea Miller, Danielle Redman, Precious Lee, and Tara Lynn.

Plus-Size Model Candice Huffine Signs With IMG

Huffine’s breakthrough photoshoot was in V Magazine’s “Curves Ahead,” an editorial feature photographed by Solve Sundsbo featuring the model. It wasn’t long after that when she was photograhed by Steven Meisel for a spread in Vogue Italia, and then later on for appearances in a variety of magazines, like American Vogue, CR Fashion Book, W, and she could also be seen on the covers of British magazine i-D and Spanish magazine S Moda.

The size-12 model also took the time to appear in ad campaigns supporting the maneuver of plus-size models into the fashion industry. Lane Bryant’s “I’m No Angel” and “Plus is Equal” campaign were among the most notable. Non-controversial campaigns featuring the model, however, included shoots for Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Marina Rinaldi, Marks & Spencer, Nordstrom, and Torrid, and she was also cast as a model for the 2015 Pirelli Calendar. Sophie Theallet also cast Huffine to walk the runway for her show back in fall, and Carine Roitfeld had her walk for her Cannes Film Festival amfAR Gala fashion show. She is clearly no stranger to the modeling industry, and in this time of her past she was being represented by Muse; it only seems natural that IMG would want to snag her up next.

Huffine is a model that really embodies what it means to be a plus-size model, by serving as a positive role model for the profession. Those who oppose the idea of plus-size models being cast often associate “plus-size” with “overweight” or “out of shape,” when in all reality they are some of the most fit women in the industry. Huffine has recently completed a half marathon in New York City, which is something viewers around the world could gain inspiration from.

Plus-size models don’t promote positive images of people being “overweight,” they promote the positive idea that it is okay if your healthy body weight happens to be higher than another person, who might also be beautiful – beauty doesn’t always come in a size 2. In fact, Huffine stands as proof that size 12 can look just as good, and with a half marathon under her belt, people around the world will be able to look to her for inspiration in fashion, fitness, and endeavors for a positive self-image.
