Christian Louboutin is making leaps and bounds… and history this year, as they named the new face of their latest campaign will be none other than plus size model Clémentine Desseaux. This is the first time the high fashion brand has ever used a plus size model as the face of their campaign, and she looks drop dead gorgeous.
“France has always been late in terms of diversity but this is one little step forward,” Desseaux, who left her native Paris for New York after being passed up for modeling opportunities, told Daily Mail. “I am hoping that more little steps will follow.” She continued, “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, blond, skinny, white-woman type.”
