For all those scouts looking for the next "It Girl" of the so-called plus-size modeling world, we'd like to submit for consideration Leah Kelley.
The New York City-based model and photographer recently got a boost from fellow plus-size stunner Robyn Lawley, who tweeted a photo of Kelley on Monday. Kelley's latest photo shoot is for Robyn Lawley Swimwear, the model's eponymous line of swimsuits that she had previously modeled herself. This time around, she photographed Kelley in the pieces.
Lawley is the more famous of the two, having become one of the most recognizable and outspoken faces of the plus-size modeling world. But Kelley is poised for similar success: She's repped by Wilhelmina, the same agency as Lawley, in its W Curve division, and she's got the active, carefree social media presence required for major models today.
Which not only makes her fun to follow, it also helps us get to know her work. Check out Kelley's latest shoots and get used to seeing this gorgeous face!
