The B-Styles Curvy Girl of the Day: “Tiffany “Tip” Jones”


Tiffany “Tip” Jones is most recognized for her appearance as a finalist on Mo’Nique’s F.A.T. Chance (The Oxygen Network) during its second season. Shortly after her appearance on the show, her involvement in the plus modeling industry soared. I personally met Tiffany a few years back via Myspace and then we’ve seen each other and worked on numerous fashion shows together from Atlanta , Richmond to New York. More recently Tiffany has become apart of The Plus Academy family alongside myself and many others as she’s the new Director of  The Plus Academy CHARLOTTE. Well I am proud today to feature “Tip” as my “Curvy Girl of the Day”.

I’m a night owl and as I scrolled thru my facebook page in the whee hours of the morning today I came across Tiffany’s new profile pic. Absolutely stunning is all I can say. From the makeup to the jewels everything was perfection. I know I probably woke her up at the crack of dawn with my text message  but I had to let her know that I wanted to feature her on my blog. Luckily, she obliged, lol. So here’s a little more about Tiffany’s career:

In 2006, she and business partner, Ms. Jay Jarvis, released their plus size urban couture collection, BLUR Custom Dezigns.  She and BLUR have been featured in Plus Model Magazine, in over a dozen fashion shows, Baltimore’s Fox 45, Radio One Baltimore 92Q Jams, Richmond 92.1 and 98.3.  Tip has also appeared as a feature model in Devoe Signature Events’, “Full Figured and Fabulous Competition”.

Most recently, the founder of The Plus Academy, Ms. Gwen Devoe, honored Tiffany with the opportunity to be the Affiliate Director of Plus Academy CHARLOTTE (http://www.plusacademycharlotte.com). “The massive amount of talent and beauty in this city paired with Ms. Devoe’s elite training curriculum will render some of the most educated, well-respected, industry-savvy plus models.  Charlotte deserves The Plus Academy.” – says Tiffany Jones

Tip is CEO of The Consulting Studio, a boutique guerrilla marketing consulting firm.  The Studio, as it is affectionately known, is the “secret weapon” behind the fashion and entertainment industries.

Coming Spring 2011, she will debut one of her most cherished efforts, the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, One Dollar College.  This national initiative encourages each citizen to donate just one dollar in order to send college bound students to school on full-ride scholarships and stall the cycle of debt.
