If you were wondering, whilst watching the Tyra Banks show yesterday, where some of the beautiful dresses the girls were wearing came from, let me shed some light and point you to the stores where some of these dresses and items can be found.

Most of the items can be found at the Monif C. online store in the ‘Rebel Colors’ collection, as well as the ‘Brown Sugar Classics’ collection:
1. “Candi” Colorblock Wrap Dress in Blue
2. “Nikki” Little Red Dress
3. “Krissy” Brown/Turquoise Silk Dress

The shirt Marguerite Brown was wearing, when she was announced the winner, however is available from Torrid. It’s a lovely corest lace shirt, very stylish, and you can take a close look at it: White Pinstripe Black Lace Button Down Shirt. At $48.00, it’s a holiday season bargain!

As I’m sure many of you have already heard, retired catwalk star Tyra Banks, hosted a contest for plus size beauties yesterday during her talk show. America’s Next Top Model host has said that “You do not have to be super stick skinny in order to model.” The voluptuous beauties who entered this contest, strutted their stuff yesterday on the TYRA show, fighting for the chance to show off their bodies and be named the winner! Among the judges of the contest, present were Mia Tyler, Josh Morrow and Ruben Studdard.

The first Top Plus-Size Model winner was Marguerite Brown, who weighs 218 pounds! Besides having the honor of being the first plus size woman to be crowned Top Plus-Size Model on the TYRA show, Marguerite won a photo spread opportunity with the new Bombshell magazine, as well as a $1,000 shopping spree and a one-year contract with top modelling agency Wilhelmina Models.

Well done Marguerite! You truly deserve your new title. And an even bigger well done to Tyra Banks who is showing her support to plus size models and full figured women worldwide, proving to us all, once again, that big is indeed beautiful and worthy of being on the front covers of magazines!
