In the world of high-end fashion, a plus-size model is pretty much any woman who shows the slightest hint of curves—hence why Kate Upton has occasionally been classified in this category.

As a fashion-minded woman I have many things to think about when I decide to hit the town. Not only do I have to choose what clothing to wear, but what other accoutrements I want to add on. Clothing itself is just the base. Once my outfit is decided, then it’s which shoes to wear, how to style my hair, which handbag to carry and what jewelry to put on.
