Interview With PLUS Model Magazine Cover Model… Mia Amber, 6/01/2009
PLUS Model Magazine Cover Model… Mia Amber
Suzette:  What range of different looks would you suggest if she has no previous photos?

Mia Amber: It all depends on the model. If she is a size 12 it will be different than if she is a 24.  Whether she has commercial aspirations or fashion aspirations.

Suzette: Let's say she is a size 18, with commercial aspirations.

Mia Amber: I'll take a look at her proportions and decide her best features to focus on. Together we look for colors that best suit her and clothes that aren't fussy so that she doesn't spend her entire shoot trying to figure out how to work a garment as opposed to letting her own beauty be showcased.  We also look at what is currently viable on the market and how that pertains to her as a model.

Suzette:  1980's style is currently in fashion, what is your most favorite item that has come back?

Mia Amber: I know I'm going to hear it about this one but everyone knows how I feel about leggings...Love them! They were a staple in the 80's and I have a bunch of them now; they are transitional...good for working out, fall styles, giving you a little support, etc.

Suzette: What do you hope will remain in the archives of fashion disaster history?

Mia Amber: The Golden Girls style of the late great Bea Arthur's floor length tunics. Overall drapey shoulder padded styles for plus size women also need to stay down!

Suzette: I noticed you like to incorporate bold jewelry pieces in your work.  Do you have any particular designers, or shops you like scout for jewelry?  Would you say that adding a bold piece of costume jewelry is your signature look?

Mia Amber: I love jewelry and I love it when full figured women aren't afraid to accessorize and be unapologetic for being beautiful.  I'm not sure if it's a national chain but Gem Story feels like the world's greatest accessory shop especially in these economic times-- everything is $2.99.

I don't know that I have a signature look, but I love it when my clients find new things to love about their bodies after our shopping sessions

Suzette: What are some of the things your clients have said they love about their bodies after you work with them?

Mia Amber: "I didn't know I had a waistline!" "Look at my legs!"  "My hips are hot!"

Suzette: That's great! 

Mia Amber: Yes, it never gets old.
