Plus-size model Candice Huffine goes nude for Spanish mag
London, May 23 (ANI): Size 14 beauty Candice Huffine bared all in a nude photoshoot for a Spanish magazine as the industry attempts to do away with skinny models.
After flaunting her curves of Vogue Italia's 'Real Beauties' issue last July, Huffine is now the star of Spain's S Moda.
Wearing nothing but heels and a diamante choker the 27-year-old's appearance comes weeks after Vogue launched a campaign to ban the use of ultra-thin models, the Daily Mail reported.
The Maryland native, who claims she doesn't "exercise because I travel too often," scored her first modelling contract in 2000.
While she was successful in the commercial market, she crossed over into the world of high fashion after Solve Sundsbo booked her for V magazine's Size Issue in 2010.
She has since graced the cover of Italian Vogue and recently scooped a spread in W magazine's March issue, shot by Mert and Marcus.
British fashion photographer Damon Baker, who has worked with the likes of Lily Cole, Andre Pejic and Pixie Geldof, captured Huffine for her latest assignment with S Moda.
On the front of the glossy she is pictured unclothed posing on a leather chair, while the strapline reads "Reales y rotundas," or "Real and well-rounded."
Meanwhile the inside spread features a mixture of Fifties-inspired pinup shots, accompanied by an article exploring why the classic womanly shape has been replaced by a skinnier ideal.
"[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," Huffine said.
"It changed my life," she added.
This month in a statement published across all of its 19 international editions Vogue magazine promised not to use underage and underweight models.
A six-point pact, called 'The Health Initiative', issued by its publisher Conde Nast, aims at encouraging a healthier approach to body image within the fashion industry, which has been lambasted for promoting anorexia.
And Candice agrees that attitudes are starting to shift, adding: "Past disputes [over Photoshop] have made the industry understand the people what they want to see is real girls." (ANI)
