We got an early Christmas present today in the form of this video interview from Yahoo Style with coolest chick ever Tess Holliday on “plus-size” fashion, and it’s all the things. It’s hilarious, illuminating, 100% truthful, and would make angels cry golden tears of joy.
When the interviewer brought up that fun little time she called out Victoria’s Secret for lack of options for curvier babes, Tess didn’t hold back, and she clearly hasn’t gotten a handwritten apology from the company yet. Regarding the incident, she said, “I don’t know if they cared. They probably didn’t look up from their glitter and angel body spray–or money. They were probably too busy.” Lolz.
The company might be neck-high in dollar bills, glitter thongs, and Gigi Hadid’s tears of joy, but it would be great of them to at least acknowledge that Tess or other women of larger sizes exist and have occasions when sheer-panelled nighties are appropriate, too. Oh well. We’re glad to see the lack of recognition from VS hasn’t discouraged Tess from continuing to shoot them some well-deserved shade.
Other reasons this video will make you want to fist bump your grandma include why Miss Piggy is her idol and her spot-on thoughts regarding butterflies and leopard print on ‘plus-size’ garments. Stay cool, Tess.
