“I worked for Laquan Smith a few years back; I shot his look book. Then about a month ago I ran into him a a party and he asked if I would come by the casting for the Spring 2014 presentation. So I did, but I was the only plus girl there which doesn’t bother me at all,” said Tolliver, modelling the look she wore during the presentation.
Designer LaQuan Smith and Tolliver.
“I’m beautiful because…of who I am as a person. I have very open and caring personality. I give a lot to the people I love and care for because seeing them happy makes me happy.”
When asked about her best feature, “that would be my eyes,” said the model.
“I can’t walk out my house with out a spray of perfume. I feel naked!”
“Running around the city day-in and day-out is just about all the exercise I get, but I do make sure that the things I’m eating are the best they can be,” says Tolliver on healthy living.
Tolliver’s advice to models on the rise: “Be confident in every situation you find your self in and never think of your self less than because you’re plus.”
Her style icon? “Beyoncé. She embraces her curves and isn’t afraid to take risks.”
