After years of hiding our curves away and desperately trying to slim down to whatever fashion has deemed to be “slim” this year, there is one particular lady who has proved us all wrong in demonstrating that curves can be exactly what people are looking for!
That young woman is Lucy Moore, who, despite being a size 16, has bagged herself the position of being the new face of Ann Summers. The student, currently at Westminster University studying criminal justice, entered a competition for the modelling job where she was competing against 4,000 other hopefuls for the position at Ann Summers. The judges ensured Lucy made it through to the final ten, after that it was down to the public to decide; after votes were counted, it emerged that Lucy monopolised a staggering 20% of the 30,000 votes that were made by the British public – making her the winner by a clear mile!
Lucy will soon be seen up and down the country modelling the Ann Summers’ Valentine collection, showing her curves off rather proudly to the nation. CEO of the successful firm, Jacqueline Gold, explained that the aim of the search was to find a real woman who oozed confidence and sex appeal, regardless of her size, further stating that, “Lucy really stood out for us.”
There has already been a lot of negative criticism towards the plus-size model, regardless of her winning the competition being a decision that was made by the public; however, negative criticism aside, I for one am over-joyed that someone as stunning as Lucy is finally standing up for girls with curves everywhere, and showing that we have some sex appeal too!
