VELVET D’AMOUR: PLUS SIZE FASHION ICON

Plus model Velvet d’Amour is widely known as the first supersize-plus model to infiltrate the elite world of Parisian couture. She first received worldwide media coverage after her appearance as a plus-size model in Jean-Paul Gaultier’s 2007 Spring/Summer prêt-à-porter collection shown in Paris in October 2006. She also made a catwalk appearance in John Galliano’s prêt-à-porter showing entitled “Everybody is Beautiful” in 2006, and in the associated French Vogue article featuring photography by Nick Knight.

MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD IN PLUS SIZE!

StylishDressing has, of late, become a fan of Indian Beauty and Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai. According to thousands of websites, internet polls and even Julia Roberts, she is the most beautiful woman in the world. Ash, who has always had a healthy figure, never taking the anorexically thin bandwagon, has put on some weight post -pregnancy. The mainstream media, as usual, has been bickering about the weight gain and how she has been irresponsible by not going the Victoria Beckham way, going back to size zero in two weeks. We think she looks gorgeous in plus size, and these pictures of her at the Cannes Film Festival 2012 will prove that!

For the AmfAR Cinema Against Aids gala, Ash wore an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla designed saree. This was a love it or hate it attire. We loved it, because althoughit did make her look a tad matronly, it had all the elegance of traditional Indian attire. The minimal makeup looked great, but the gold streak in the hair, was a wee bit tacky for us. MORE IMAGES →
