Here are mine - if you comment let me know who your inspirational people are!
1. Denise Bidot. Her face is familiar to most and it took me forever to figure out who she actually was. All I knew when I shopped through Macy's Junior Plus and Forever21+ was that she had the most beautiful face and body. She's been in much more than clothing catalogs, including magazine covers for plus size women and the new television show 'Curvy Girls' (which I have yet to watch). She's a full-time single mother and her career is an always on the go job. She has really gave me inspiration in understanding I can be a plus size and still be beautiful. Granted I could really shed some weight, I could never give up being a curvy girl.
2. Ellie Goulding. She is my whimsical lady. I have a thing for loving singers who really have their own style of vocals and she's on the top of my list for sure. Her music is the kind I go to when I feel in a mellow mood or just need that emotive kick, because she portrays it so well.
3. Lana Del Ray. I love her voice and her style. It is so fresh. I can't say I ever really liked the Americana theme before until she incorporated it into her music and videos. She is very strong and an independent lady. It's stories like hers that show how the past has really shaped her future, turning some misfortunes into positives.
4. Adele. Probably my biggest role model to date. To be honest, I hated her music in the beginning and all I ever heard was that I looked just like her (during this time I never knew what she looked like). Suddenly one day a light bulb just clicked and I could not stop listening to her music. Her voice is incredible! I have done several songs by her on karaoke nights out, though I know my vocal talent could never compare to hers. She is a strong lady, never fazed by the media and proud to be everything she is. Ever since I found out we share the same birth date, people have even called her my English twin. I've seriously been stared at while cruising through Torrid and was finally approached by the sales associate who went on about our look-alike features. I think they are the best compliments ever received since Adele is such a beautiful woman to begin with.
