Shortly after fashion magazine Vogue launched its campaign against using ultra-thin models, and using plus-size model Candice Huffine for their Vogue Italia’s “Real Beauties” issue last July, Candice has now landed another magazine cover for Spain’s S Moda.
Crossing over from the commercial market to high fashion, Candice was also booked for W magazine’s March issue. Candice claims she doesn’t “exercise because I travel too often.”
‘[The Vogue Italia] editorial opened the eyes of the industry and proved that we are beautiful, sexy and good models. Now people want to see more.
‘It changed my life.’
Conde Nast’s publisher issued a “six-point pact” called “The Health Initiative” which promises not to use any underage or underweight models. And Candice notices how the attitudes in the industry are starting to shift. She added:
‘Past disputes [over Photoshop] have made the industry understand the people what they want to see is real girls.’
