FIRSTS: COVER GIRL COSMETICS

Post image for FIRSTS: COVER GIRL COSMETICS

Of all of the fairytale starts to a modeling career, surely one of the best stories is that of Jordan Tesfay, a woman of Eritean descent from Alberta, Canada who won the first legitimate plus-size model search back in 1999, conducted by Wilhelmina and Mode Magazine.  In a career that took off as soon as it was launched, with bookings for companies such as Levi’s, Playtex, Addition-Elle, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom department stores, and minor roles  in theatre-released movies, a career highlight must surely be her casting by CoverGirl cosmetics alongside Queen Latifah as their first ‘plus size’ model.

These images presented important intersections of size, colour and age which deserve a far broader reach than they received, due to their targeted magazine placement for the US market.
