Miss Plus Top Model Awards - "The Glitz and Glamour Ball", 1/01/2011

by Michelle Renee

"The Glitz and Glamour Ball" was the theme for the evening at this year's Miss Plus Top Model Awards Show at the Celebrity Centre in Hollywood. I was ready to hit the red carpet with friend and fellow plus model Denise Bidot, who joined me at the event, (where she also was my photographer for the night!) We had a front row seat at what is an annual event for Juliette Hagerman of Hagerman and Associates Entertainment Productions. This year fourteen hopefuls vied for the 2011 crown. Chenese Lewis once again was the host for the evening, which was also a celebration of her birthday. Chenese was also given a special Woman of the Year achievement award for her years of contribution to the plus community.


Contestants rocked the runway in fashions by Crystal Renee and Tamechi, and the audience was treated to performances by Evolution Dance and Thixotix modeling troupe. Many past queens were also in attendance, and were dressed in glamorous fashions provided by Abundance in Sherman Oaks, CA. The judges for this year's competition included actress Kendra C. Johnson, model and actress Alana Chandler, PLUS Model Magazine's Executive Fashion Director, The Curvy Fashionista and Fashion and Style editor for PLUS Marie Denee, photographer Inez Lewis, photographer Michael Anthony Hermogeno, and plus size advocate and socialite Cher Rue.


All the contestants were poised and beautiful, but in the end the 2011 crown went to Keishia Simon, with 1st place going to Tammie Loving. The 2010 queen Melissa Fosse Dunne was on hand to crown this year's winner. Once again Juliette has provided aspiring plus models and full figured women with a chance to shine. Many of this year's contestants had never been on a runway before and they did an amazing job! Congratulations to the winner and we look forward to seeing Keishia at many events throughout the year.


Following the awards show there was an after party and birthday celebration for Chenese Lewis at Life on Wilshire, and a fantastic time was had by all.
