I thought that this was interesting enough to include in Debi Drecksler’s Authentic Me Campaign.
Congratulations to Lizzi Miller for helping change America’s definition of BEAUTY. Next step…Redefining the word Plus Size!

Lizzi Miller wasn’t looking to be famous. Yet almost one year after making headlines for baring all — including her fleshy midsection — in Glamour magazine last November, Miller has become both an in-demand model and a role model.
“Seeing someone not airbrushed, with an average looking body, compared to all those stick-thin pictures of perfection — I guess people thought: ‘Wow! This girl looks like me,'” Miller, 21, tells the Daily Mail.
“It really struck a chord. The work flooded in, with lucrative contracts with American and Italian fashion labels.”
Indeed, since baring her belly, which she calls “the part of myself I was most insecure about,” the 5-foot-11, size 12 stunner has not only starred in glossy photo shoots but also recently strutted her stuff in OneStopPlus.com‘s first-ever plus-size runway showduring New York Fashion Week.
