plus size model clementine desseaux is the new face of christian louboutin
'Beauty is changing and brands are putting girls that are different in the spotlight,' the French stunner said of her historic contract.
Clementine Desseaux has made fashion history as the first 'plus size' model to bag a campaign for luxury label Christian Louboutin, announced as the new face of the brand's lipstick line. Falling somewhere between a size 12 and a size 14, Clementine had always felt out of place in Paris, so she moved to New York, where she's been killing it ever since.
"Such a big French brand using a curvier girl for her face is a big step," the French beauty told the Daily Mail over the weekend. "The beauty norm is changing and differences that used to be weaknesses are now turning into strengths. Being curvy and freckly was never easy back when I was in France. Now beauty is changing and brands are putting girls that are different in the spotlight. They are opening up to all the beauty that is in the world and not only the European, blonde, skinny, white woman type," she added. Long may it continue.
