In a special i-D Meets with model Paloma Elsesser last year, director Tom Ivin wrote:

“Paloma Elsesser knows the importance of showing young women that there are so many different ways to be beautiful. The plus size model 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 too.”

So, in this episode of i-D podcast, Fash-ON Fash-OFF, stylist and i-D Fashion Director Alastair McKimm chats to Paloma -- the Pat McGrath muse and Fenty Beauty ambassador who graced the cover of i-D’s Radical Issue earlier this year. Together they discuss Paloma’s career so far, as well as their thoughts and feelings on the state of the industry today. Subscribe now and listen below.
