The gorgeous Tess Holliday made history last year by being the first size-22 model to land a contract with a major modeling agency, and made waves again when she was featured on the cover of PEOPLE’s annual body issue in summer.
The stunning cover was also chosen by the American Society of Magazine Editors as a finalist in the 10th-anniversary ASME Best Cover Contest. It was one of five nominees chosen by top editors, art directors and photo editors in the women’s lifestyle cover category.
“It’s crazy,” Holliday, 30, told Today at the time about landing the cover of PEOPLE. “I’ve been reading it since I was a kid so to be on the cover is surreal.” The cover story documented Holliday’s rise from a severely bullied teenager to a sought-after plus-size model, who landed major campaigns with Benefit Cosmetics and Torrid.
