A real woman plus size model has been named as the winner of a competition to find the face of lingerie retailer Ann Summers. Lucy Moore, a 20-year-old University of Westminster student from Portsmouth, Hampshire, gained over 22 per cent of the 30,000 people who voted in the contest featured on ITV2′s The Only Way Is Essex. Miss Moore, a size 16, said:
This has been one of the most exciting things to happen to me and I couldn’t believe I made it into a national modelling competition and have now won. It is beyond anything I could have imagined.”
I want to represent women with a curvier figure and show them that you can be sexy, no matter what your size or shape.”
Jacqueline Gold, a CEO of Ann Summers, said:
This has been such an exciting campaign for Ann Summers and I was amazed by the amount of entries we received.The campaign was about finding a real woman who embodied our brand and oozed sexiness and confidence.”
Lucy really stood out for us and we are really looking forward to showing off our new Valentine’s collection with Lucy taking centre stage in the campaign and store windows.”
The other nine women chosen were Sinead from Beaconsfield, Katie A from Essex, Mary from Clitheroe, Hayley from Dudley, Natalie from Huddersfield, Melanie from London, Kassidy from Hebburn, Katy K from London, and Abigail from Hartlepool.
Imo, Lucy is pretty, but overweight and therefore unhealthy. So to say fighting against a kinda ‘discrimination’ against overweight people is getting more and more annoying. Claiming that big people are as sexy as normal ones is self-delusion. Stop worshipping obestity, it’s not okay.
