First of all, wow. Second, if you're here to comment something dumb and tasteless, please let me direct you to the exit over there.

Now we have all that taken care of, let's get right on to it. You might have come across Tess Holliday a couple times before. She's a plus-size model. If you haven't, then let us introduce you. Tess, made bigger waves early this year for being the biggest plus-size model in the world to have been signed by a top agency, which is the UK-based MiLK Management.

Standing at five-foot-five (five-foot-four according to other sources), which is a relatively uncommon height in the modelling plane, Tess shook the social media by storm. Long story short, she basically just raised her middle fingers up at what is supposed to look sexy then turned back and walked away to give the world a better view of her fantastic arse.

But really though, look at her. She's gorgeous. I'm blown away by her shoots. I'm really not just saying this for the sake of journalism, but she really deserves the attention the world is giving her at the moment. It's no just the looks though, but to have that kind of confidence in being who you are is amazing. And that's not even all of it, have you seen her tattoos? That's what makes her more interesting.

She's also responsible for the #EffYourBeautyStandards movement last year, making women drop their insecurity blankets and follow her lead. And now with the rise of girl power and body love (not only to women, but to men as well), of which she's become one of the lead runners of. In her social media accounts, you will see shoots where she rocks her signature glamorous yet sexy pin-up style, highlighting that striking face and her many tattoos.

Before she became Ms. Tess Holiday, she was TessTyphoon/Tess Munster of Model Mayhem. She gave modelling a shot, after moThis led her to several modelling gigs, including being the face for a promotional material of A&E's show 'Heavy'. These days, the size 22 model is wielding the hypothetical hammer to break the media bullsh-t where a size 10 is apparently plus-size. Anna Shillinglaw, the owner and director of MiLk Model Management, tells NY Daily News on Tess, "She's such an important role model for so many women."

And in case you're wondering, all you curve-lovers out there, she is totally out of the market. She has gotten engaged last year to an Australian artist by the name of Nick Holliday, whose surname she took and began using professionally since this January. The couple started out from a message Nick sent the model in Tumblr, not quite expecting a response.

Three years after their romance began on Tumblr, Nick moved to Los Angeles to start a new life with her and now working as her manager. And that's not the only start of a new life they're going to get, as many are speculating how grandiose their wedding this fall will be.

Tess also has a nine-year-old son named Rylee who Tess always make sure to have time for. The little guy has gotten along well with Nick and Tess couldn't be happier to have the two men in her life sharing a bond.

Oh, and what about all the hate she's getting for all that self-love she likes to share with the world? Well, this is what Tess has to say:

“When people are telling you, ‘You’re fat and gross,’ it does the complete opposite. At the end of the day, they’re not paying my bills.”

Go on, her haters can try telling her 930k Facebook fans and her 775k Instagram fans about all the pounds she has to lose that's still not quite as heavy as how dense they are.
