      i-D meets: paloma elsesser

      Growing up without role models who reflected who she was, Paloma Elsesser knows the importance of showing young women that there are so many different ways to be beautiful. With her doe eyes and radiant skin, plus size model Paloma is at the forefront of the body positivity movement, winning over the industry simply by being her radiant self. She was plucked from obscurity for legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath’s Golden Makeover series, and since then has been desired by editorial spreads and ads -- not only because she looks amazing, but also because she's seriously smart. In this episode of i-D Meets, we get to know body positivity pioneer Paloma in London, before visiting a group of teenagers at a school to talk about how important it is as girls to surround yourself with strong female friends. Then we'll head to Brixton Village with Paloma's fellow International Girl Crew member Madeline Poole to discuss the power of sister hood and body confidence - and how in 2017, you can be your own role model.
