My heart is so heavy thinking about what is going on in Haiti. This type of disaster hopefully reiterates to all of us how connected we all are as a global family. I know there are many fantastic organizations collecting money for Haiti, I already sent money through Yele, Wyclef Jean’s charity, but I know there is more than can be done.
The post man that picks up at our boutique is from Haiti and travels to Haiti yearly on humantarian missions. He works directly with a church in Haiti and we are working to reach the Pastor there to send packages and money there. If any of you guys are interested in sending down with me and the rest of the Monif C. family, leave a comment here AND email info (at) monifc.com. Let’s also keep the Haitian people in our prayers. Google set up a great link on it’s front page with all the different organizations/ways to donate, so check it out here.
A few months back, Mia Amber Davis (model, actress, producer, and now stylist extraordinairre) asked me to borrow some clothes to test shoot plus size super model Charlotte Coyle. I never saw the final shots, but happened to run into them on Judgment of Paris, a forum that showcases plus size beauty.

One of the biggest buzzes right now in the fashion industry is V Magazine’s Size Issue. V Magazine is probably the first major mainstream magazine to take on doing fashion forward editorials using plus size models. Although some people have been critical about the sizes of the models used, the reality is it is a HUGE step forward for a major magazine to use plus size models in editorials and I for one am UBER excited for the magazine to come out on January 14th.
V Magazine has been leaking some of the pics from the editorials, the first one featuring plus size supermodel Crystal Renn. I was really happy to see the editorial, but I damn near lost my mind when I saw the latest editorial featuring a variety of plus size models on Christina’s blog Musings of a Fatshionista.
Here are some of my fav pics from the editorial…
This is inspiring me to do a naked photo shoot…I’m so serious…
