Denise Bidot is making waves. As a size-14 model, she's worked with Forever 21, Target, Levi's, Nordstrom, Macy's, Old Navy…and the list goes on. During NYFW 2014, she became the first plus-size model to walk the runway for non plus-size brands: CHROMAT and Serena Williams. Starring on the series Curvy Girls, she's also an advocate of body acceptance. As Bidot herself states, "there is no wrong way to be a woman."
Jones was the eighth contestant eliminated on the third cycle of America's Next Top Model, and then signed with Wilhelmina Models in their plus-size division. Since then, she's appeared in campaigns for Avon, Target, New York and Company, Ashley Stewart, and Rocawear. "When people think plus-size, they assume it means overweight, fat, or unattractive, but I've met so many different models of different sizes—beautiful women," Jones told Voice-Online.UK. "As for me, I am P-L-U-S. I'm big, black, beautiful, and love it!"
