Size 22 Model Tess Munster’s First Agency Photo Shoot Looks Amazing

by Debbie Stoller

Founder of Eff Your Beauty Standards, Tess Holliday (maiden name Munster), shared her first agency shoot as as a MiLK model on Instagram Monday. And needless to say (because, um, look down), the photos are crazy awesome.

“So thrilled that I can finally share these images,” the model captioned one. 

When Holliday got signed, she was flooded with reactions on Twitter, Instagram, and personal letters. She told The Guardian“Some people were very excited, some people called me fat and said I was too big to be a model.” How did Holliday see it? “Ultimately, in my eyes, my being signed is changing an industry that needs to be changed.”

We agree.
