Our August Model of the Month is Detras! Detras is a loving, kind soul who joined the SmartGlamour family during our #InYourSize campaign. Since then, she’s participated in last year’s Fall runway and look book and this year’s Summer + Swim! Learn more about her below.
1. Aside from occasionally modeling for SmartGlamour – what do you do?
3. You’ve modeled for us multiple times – what makes you continue to come back?
I come back because I’m a person who loves to feel amazing in her clothes and when I get the oppurtunities to model SG clothes, I know I will feel amazing in the garments.
4. What does body positivity mean to you?
Body positivity is when you love who you are no matter what your body looks like. Your body is your temple no matter the size, shape or color it is, it’s yours and you should love it in any condition it’s in. Embrace every flaws because no one is perfect.
5. If there is a message you could put across to other people through your modeling photos – what would that be?
LOVE WHO YOU ARE. We were all designed to stand out. Don’t compare yourself to the next person because you are a phenomenal person.
Self love is the best love you can ever get and it teaches you to give it in its best way!!!
6. What is your advice to other people who would like to give modeling a try?
When I coach my models, my main point to them is modeling isn’t always about a beautiful face, it starts from within. When you start loving who you are, it will show up in everything you do.
