Tess Holliday is angered by celebrities who won’t support and promote plus-size models on social media.

The 34-year-old vented her frustrations during a recent interview with Nylon magazine, and claimed fellow models refused to show enthusiasm for plus-size women for fear of “messing up” their Instagram feed.

“Why is it controversial to talk about the fact that fat people deserve to take up space and deserve to be sexy? All of that just makes me so angry, because I see so many people that are plus-sized figures and figures in general, like celebrities, and they will post Black Lives Matter in their Insta-Stories, but not on their page because they don’t want to mess up their beautiful feed,” she fumed.

“It just makes me so mad because this is why people are dying, this is why people feel so alone. We are not showing up for these people, and we are not telling them that they matter.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Tess noted that she believes she has been brainwashed by society to feel bad about her curves.

“Obviously I probably have internalised fatphobia about myself and what the world has ingrained in us,” the model stated, before reacting to the barrage of comments by social media users earlier this year after she disclosed that she had an abortion after welcoming her second child. “Why is it controversial that I chose to talk about my abortion? And the fact that I got an abortion when I was in a marriage and could have financially supported a child, why did I feel so much shame for that?”

Tess gave birth to Bowie, her son with husband Nick, in 2016. She also has another son from a previous relationship.

Lana Del Rey channelled Old Hollywood at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (28Jan18).

The 32-year-old singer, who was nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her record Lust for Life, stepped out in a stunning off-white dress with silver star embellishments from Gucci.

Lana accessorised her look with silver platform shoes, a long sparkly necklace, and a white silk rose on her wrist in support of the Time’s Up movement – but it was her halo-like headpiece that really grabbed fashionistas’ attention.

With her dark hair parted down the middle, the twinkling headpiece was placed on the back of her head, with many social media users pointing out at the look was very similar to a costume and headpiece worn by actress and World War II-era inventor Hedy Lamarr in the 1941 movie Ziegfeld Girl.

Lana wasn’t the only celebrity to make a serious sartorial statement on the night though; Beyonce made a powerful tribute to the Black Panther Party with her look.

The singer was joined by her rapper husband JAY-Z and their six-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in the front row of the awards ceremony, and looked glamorous in a black high neck dress with a large black hat from Nicolas Jebran. She matched her look with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, a Judith Leiber purse, Jimmy Choo shoes, and sunglasses from Alain Mikli.

Beyonce paired her outfit with a slick of bold, purple lipstick and her make-up artist, L’Oreal Paris’ Sir John, revealed that the star made all the decisions when it came to styling, and decided to take inspiration from the revolutionary organisation which was founded in the U.S. in 1966.

“It started with Super Bowl (in January 2016), and here we are,” he told People, referring to Beyonce’s politically-charged halftime show which made explicit reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. “The turtleneck part of the dress tonight – it’s sculptural silhouette. It was a really strong, powerful moment. This is something that is representative of love and solidarity for her people.”
