This week, we’re talking curvy campaigns – that’s a beautiful brand new face for ASOS’ and the launch of Mango’s new fuller-figure-friendly range, “Violeta.” Plus, we’ve our Curvy Pick of the Week for you to wish after, as usual… Enjoy!
Violeta by Mango Launches in the US with A/W’14 Collection
Violeta, the brand new plus size range by Mango, first debuted in Europe at the beginning of 2014 but has now made its way over to the US, launching for the first time with its Autumn/Winter’14 collection. Packed with classic jackets, chic capes and draped jumpsuits to make the transition from Summer a little easier, the new collection is just perfect – and just for curvy girls, too!
However, as we’re sure you’re enjoying the Summer as much as we at SPICE are, we’ve decided to share our edit of Violeta’s Summer collection, with a few pieces you’ll find now in the sale. Have a sneak peek at the new Autumn/Winter range below (all of which you can shop here) and then take a look at our Summer edit, which includes a bold blue, flowing two-piece which’ll work well for day or night, plus leather and snakeskin accessories to lift the casual outfit some sophisticated edge – and all for under £100!
Lauren Punter Wins ASOS & Models 1’s #MakeMeACurveModel Competition
A few weeks back we featured ASOS’ campaign with Models 1 to find a new face for their Curve range, and ladies and gents, they have a winner: 20 year old Lauren Punter who, at a curvaceous size 18, beat a huge 8,000 entrants to become the new face of ASOS.
The mixed race stunner said of her win and her body;
“I wasn’t happy with my body for a long time and tried almost everything to change it; exercise, diets etc, but now I can say I’m finally feeling happy in my own skin.
I’ve embraced my curves and realised that they are a gift and I’m blessed because by being curvy – it’s bought this new career prospect into my life.”
ASOS also had high praises on Lauren and the whole campaign, saying;
“In line with ASOS, Models 1 know the importance of a healthy body image in all shapes and sizes – it is important to represent healthy girls.
Lauren’s Instagram pictures were great but the moment that she walked in we knew instantly we had found a winner who was a true ASOS girl with real star quality.”
We at SPICE wish Lauren the best of luck and are sure she’ll be making another appearance on #CurvesdayThursday soon! See her model shots, below;
