“The B-Styles Curvy Girl of the Day”: Courtney Mills
I first met Courtney Mills a few months ago on facebook through a mutual friend. She then enrolled into my “Plus Academy VIRGINIA” Fall classes. But her plus-size modeling career has taken off even before taking the first class. Courtney is the perfect example of how the way that you market yourself will get you far. She wore her “Size is Sexy” shirt to “Full Figured Fashion Week” in New York last month and it was an instant hit. The designers loved her in it and by the following week she was in Philadelphia doing her first photoshoot with that company. She even made the “Best Dressed” list of FFFW by Plus Model Magazine.
At first glance Courtney has a model look and then to top that she also dresses the part of a model . I got to witness first hand last week Courtney’s runway skills when I attended her very 1st runway fashion show entitled “Curves at Full Throttle” here in Richmond, Virginia. I tell you what, yall ain’t ready.
By day Courtney works as a correctional officer in Alexandria, Virginia and as a sales associate at Torrid part-time. But I have a gut feeling that very soon she will be hanging up the handcuffs for a blossoming career as the muse of some big fashion house. I can’t wait until she starts The Plus Academy VIRGINIA fall session and maybe teach the other participants a thing or two about marketing yourself in this career. I’m sure you will be seeing alot more to come from this young lady in the plus-size modeling world!
Q & A with Courtney:
What’s your favorite store for shopping?
To choose just one is very hard but I am a Torrid fan to the highest degree. I like to get my looks from many different stores such as Voluptuous Inc in Canada, Dots (the best kept secret), Forever 21’s Faith 21 collection and I also do a lot of bargain shopping on Ebay for the hottest and cheapest accessories and shoes.
