Thank you to the @dailyfrontrow
for naming me Fashion Force of the Year, and to #AmySchumer
for the most hilarious and heartfelt introduction 😘
By modeling the past 18 years, I’ve learned a thing or two about trends. You’re in one season, you’re out the next. I am grateful that now, season after season, the industry is becoming even more inclusive. My curves are not a trend, your skin color is not a trend, your culture and abilities are not a trend.
For a force to become a movement, it requires action and strength from many people. I urge you all — those working in the fashion and media industries and beyond — to think inclusively, to continue making and celebrating historical “firsts” until we truly reflect the diverse world that we live in.
And thank you to my incredible team at IMG/WME for always pushing the industry for real inclusion!❤️❤️❤️
