‘It doesn’t matter what shape you have or the size you wear, whether you’re skinny or curvy, tall or short. The important thing is to be happy, to feel comfortable in your own skin and love our bodies like thin.’
The world renowned NY model started her career at the age of 15. She appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia, fronted Levis and Evans and even walked in Paris for Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion show. The 21-years old star of the ‘curvy universe’ is 12-sized but some ad clients still say she isn’t voluptuous enough. That’s why Marquita even uses the special hips pads to make them look larger. The outsized diva admits she really enjoys the small community of the curvy models, because such girls are more friendly and peaceful than the ‘thinner’ ones. She also reveals she’s been self-conscious or has had image problem about being outsized. To maintain her weight and shape she needs to work hard daily sometimes even more than some of the skinny girls. Guess what is her ‘guilty pleasure’? Chocolate of course! We should all learn to love our bodies the way this classy diva does.
