If you see photos of Nadia Aboulhosn, one thing will become very clear: this pretty lady gives no fucks. There's something specific about the way she poses her face and her ass that demands attention. So you'll look...and then you'll keep looking. Between her personality and her sense of style, I think it's a pretty safe bet to say the fashion world will continue looking at her for quite a while.
I first discovered Nadia via Nicolette Mason's Instagram account
, where she posted about the Mynt 1792
coat collaboration that both women designed for. Not to take anything away from any of the other ladies in the promotional group photo, but my eyes immediately went to Nadia! She had on a black and white striped crop top, black skinny jeans, strappy sandals, and dark red lipstick. Also known as The Best Outfit Ever™
as far as I'm concerned. So obviously, after seeing her I set about following her in all of her various online outlets (Instagram
, and website
So, yeah. Nadia isn't a size 0/2 like most of the models working in the industry today. But to cast her as simply a "plus-size blogger and model" would be to put her into a narrow box that she doesn't deserve. If we want to get real, Nadia is smaller in size than the average American woman. So is calling her plus-size even accurate? I don't know, and honestly I don't care. I'm following her because her outfit choices inspire the hell out of me, and that would be true whether she lost or gained fifty pounds.
I can't even deal with her sunglass game. It's too good. And I never thought I'd look at pair of athletic shorts and think they looked stylish, but she's proved me wrong about that! Apparently you just need a long sleeve white T-shirt, gold jewelry, and heels. (It probably helps that her waist to hip ratio is an 11 on a scale of 1-10. Scientifically attractive!) And Karla Deras circa 2012-inspired hair
is ALWAYS a good idea.
This is totally a promotional photo for a swimsuit line, but I liked it so much I had to include it, and i don't care that it's late October. (I promise to do a more seasonally appropriate post soon. There's no such thing as too many wide-brimmed hat and boot posts, am I right?)
Special thanks to Nadia for letting me use photos from her website
for this story. She's a doll.
