A Laurel woman has landed a major modeling contract, making history as the first plus size model of her size to sign with an agency.
Tess Holliday, formally known as Tess Munster, signed with the London based modeling agency MiLK.“I was in Hattiesburg and they had a Lane Bryant there. I was 15 and it was my first time wearing plus size clothing,” Holliday said. “I saw Emme, who was the first plus size super model. She was on a magazine they had in Lane Bryant and I told my mom I wanted to do it.”
