We have a very special cover star on this week’s LOOK magazine, because for the first time EVER, we’re featuring a real girl as our star!
As you all know, we’re all about embracing all shapes and sizes over here at LOOK, which is why we picked the gorgeous Ali Tate to appear on the front.
24-year-old Ali is rocking Simply Be, who we’re partnering with this week, and also happened to win our LOOK curvy supermodel competition all the way back in 2011.
So, what’s the lady herself got to say about starring on our first celebrity-free cover?
‘I had no idea that entering LOOK’s competition would change my life’, she told us. ‘Before seeing it in the magazine, I never considered modeling, I always felt insecure about my body. But getting to the final really boosted my confidence.’
‘I quit my old job and began to focus on my career – and now I feel happy and secure about the way I look, plus I’ve worked with some of the world’s best-known brands and photographers and even done a nude shoot with Rankin.’
‘I really have LOOK to thank for that’, she added. ‘I have always appreciated that LOOK features women of all sizes, so I’m honoured to be on the cover. It’s a proud moment!’
Aw. And we couldn’t be more proud to have her…
Inside, you can also see Ali rocking Simply Be’s gorgeous Christmas party collection – just what you need to get you looking glam for the festive season.
Polly Wakelin, Simply Be Brand team says: ‘At Simply Be we are always looking for ways to showcase perfect-fitting fashion and celebrate confident curves so when LOOK magazine approached us with this unique opportunity to appear on the cover, damn right we said yes!’
‘We are really excited about this collaboration. LOOK has always pushed the boundaries by showcasing the curvier girl, a viewpoint we share here at Simply Be. Realness in advertising is key because fashion definitely shouldn’t come with a dress size.’
The issue goes on sale today, so don’t forget to grab a copy. Oh, and you’ll get a cheeky 20% off everything at Simply Be, too! WIN.
