Just Curvy Crush: Barbie Ferreira
Posted by Laurel on June 22, 2016
We’re back with another instalment of Just Curvy Crush, where we give you the low-down on which gorgeous women we’re girl-crushing on right now, and this week we bring you 19-year-old Insta-star Barbie Ferreira, who also goes by her online persona Barbie Nox.
A New York native, Barbie’s worked with huge brands including mega designer Calvin Klein and upmarket fashion brand Opening Ceremony, however Barbie’s first real shoot was just two years ago, which in true millennial style she auditioned for with a selfie, and the rest is history as they say! Since then the model has sky-rocketed, with Barbie recently being signed to New York model agency Wilhelmina’s Curve division.
The bold-browed beauty explains that she hopes with the way the fashion industry is heading, soon enough the term ‘plus-size’ won’t be needed: “Plus-size modelling, I think, is an unnecessary term. We are going to get the jobs that we usually wouldn’t in the near future. At one point, I think it’s just going to be modelling.” Something which we couldn’t agree with more!
Unafraid of showing her true self via social media and a big fan of un-retouched #nomakeup selfies, whilst social media has acted as a launch-pad for Barbie’s career it has also opened her up to some criticism and hateful comments, but instead of taking the negativity to heart Barbie focuses on the positive messages she receives, instead saying: “I really, really never take the Internet to heart. The amount of positive messages that move me to tears are so much more frequent than the negative ones.”
