Did you catch the latest fashion news with Tess Holliday? For the July beauty issue, Tess Holliday is Nylon Magazine’s digital cover girl. The plus size supermodel has a lot to be thankful for, particularly the skin she is in. In case you didn’t know, Holliday has been a champion for self-confidence and body positivity for years. She rose to prominence in the modeling world in 2014 and has been on a roll ever since. Her Milk Model Management contract broke barriers and gave her a larger platform to further blaze paths.
We’ve featured Tess Holliday in her stunning campaigns with Penningtons, Marie Claire, PEOPLE, Torrid, Eloquii, Alpine Butterfly, and many more. And today? While we had teased the image on our Facebook page, we had to share a bit more about this Puerto Vallarta, Mexico based interview AND show off the various images that are JUST BEAUTIFUL.
Inside the Tess Holliday Nylon Magazine Beauty Issue
It’s fitting that Tess would cover Nylon while on the beach, wearing a bomb bathing suit! Eff your beauty standards! Pun intended! Her personal brand is literally called, “effyourbeautystandards,” and in a NYLON exclusive, she explores her internal conflicts over her sexuality after recently realizing her queerness.
“I definitely have a sense of relief. I can connect with people on a more intimate level than I was before because I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not.” Tess Holliday
When asked, for clarity, if she’s saying she would be in a romantic relationship with a woman? Tess responds, firmly, “Yeah!”
This interview is not your traditional one. As the editor in chief narrates this interview, we are given a behind the scenes sneak peek into the photo shoot. Not only that, this interviews goes a bit more deeper into Tess’s life- the challenges, her growth, and her peace that she finds. We learn about various intimate moments in and thoughts around Tess Holliday’s life.
Here’s another snippet from the interview:
“I feel like a lot of stuff in my life now makes sense. A lot of the things that I felt when I was younger make sense. A lot of the relationships that I had make sense… I definitely have a sense of relief. I can connect with people on a more intimate level than I was before because I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not.
