Plus-size model Thickleeyonce’s SA Fashion Week runway debut back in October of last year may have been marred by criticism and bullying. But the big, bold and beautiful star has clearly not taken any of it to heart.
In fact, even at the time, she vowed not to throw in her model hat and continues spreading her message of body-positivity and loving your own self.
And summer has seen Thickleeyonce post some of her fiercest looks yet on her social media accounts. Scroll down for a few of our favourite looks from the plus-size babe!

Is it not crazy how you’ll meet girls who you’ll look at and think “wow, she’s beautiful, I wish I looked like her…” then torture yourself and hate yourself simply cos you look nothing like her…and then you get to talk to the girl who you think is soooo perfect, and she tells you a story about how she doesn’t like how she looks and she is so ugly and so fat and how she can’t stand the stretch marks on her back or the cellulite that is visible under the sunlight … and then suddenly you realize how crazy the world is… you could admire someone’s looks …someone who you find flawless yet they don’t realize how perfect they are,,,suddenly you realize how you’re the same person as the silly beautiful girl who doesn’t see her beauty… perhaps you’re beautiful too and your too focused on what society has told you is wrong with your body…stop and realize that you’re unique and special, I swear, you’re perfect.
