Real women with real curves graced the runway wearing Shanta Alexander and Gianni Mercedes designs at The Forbidden Kiss Tour Fashion Show last night. The event, thrown by Walk Industries and Parris Harris, was held atop The Kress rooftop in Hollywood. Models consisted of buxom beauties strutting their stuff down the runway sporting skimpy bikinis, short dresses and lingerie fit for women of every shape and size. The event was a breath of fresh air as it wasn’t your typical L.A. Fashion Week event. On this runway, not every model was stick thin. We saw a diverse group of women who were petite, tall, thin and women who embraced their curves and knew how to work it on the catwalk.

Overall, the event was a success and the audience contributed to the fun, party vibe as they cheered and clapped while models made their way down the runway. The fashion show proved that even in Los Angeles, home of plastic surgery, botox and liposuction, there are designers out there who help women of all shapes and sizes embrace themselves, feel sexy and confident about who they are.
