Ebony Magazine Highlights Curvy Women In March Issue
Thick women are taking over the fashion and beauty industry! Hot on the heels of Ashley Graham’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover shoot, Ebony is taking a closer look at plus-size actresses, entertainers, and influencers and getting their take on body image, self acceptance, and public perception.
Style Blogger Gabi Gregg (aka GabiFresh), singer Jazmane Sullivan, actress Danielle Brooks (Taystee from OITNB), and singer Chrisette Michele cover the issue in military-inspired outfits as “The Body Brigade:”
We are all Black women who have had varying struggles with weight, food and body acceptance. Unlike me, my dining mates lead public lives. In this exclusive conversation, you will be privy to their raw emotional honesty and sound intellect, and whether you are someone who could have joined us for the meal or someone who has never engaged in the body image battle, you will learn how critical, complicated, contradictory and sometimes completely satisfying the relationship between big Black women and their bodies is.
