Mentor Model Agency have recently signed up the beautiful Abby Creaghan. Plus size models are more and more in demand at present due the fashion industry realising the demand for plus size clothing, this has had a positive knock on effect for curvier models and for the modelling industry as a whole. We have asked Abby to tell us a little about how she got into the modelling industry and what she likes about it.
When did you start modelling and how did it come about?
I'm still fairly new to the industry, I joined my first agency last November. Modelling has always been something I wanted to do but didn't think I would ever get the opportunity due to me being curvy. As there is now more demand for plus size models I decided to embrace my curves and eventually applied to be a plus size model and was signed up to my first agency.
What do you enjoy about modelling?
I think modelling is a good way to boost your confidence, being in front of the camera and seeing how u look on camera is a wonderful feeling!
What do you like to wear and what styles do you think best suit a woman with beautiful curves?
I have a smaller waist in comparison to my hips and find it difficult for anything to fit properly bodycon midi skirts tend to be my favourite as they seem to fit perfect and also Spanx are my best friend! I think high waist trousers and skirts are perfect for women with curves and bodycon midi dresses are perfect at showing off beautiful curves.
Whats the best style advice you have ever been given?
Own a black leather biker jacket, it can literally go with every outfit!
Whats your favourite make-up product?
MAC pro Longwear foundation, this product reacts so well to my skin and has the perfect 'yellowy' tones and creates such a natural look. Well priced also. I love it!
Can you offer any useful tips or advice to aspiring models?
Try and stay as natural as possible, keep eyebrows natural, try and avoid visible tattoos and try to stay fit and most importantly be patient!
