Obsessed with Denise Bidot, 10/01/2009
Denise Bidot

Sometimes you see a model and you just know she is something special. I recall seeing a photo of a beautiful and exotic young model a few years ago on a plus model forum; The photo was taken by the incredible photographer Sita Mae Edwards. The girl was the makeup artist on the set of Sita's shoot that day, and at the insistence of Sita and the model she was shooting, she nervously posed for Sita. I made a mental note to be on the lookout for her in the future.

Fast-forward to more than a year later, and I see this gorgeous and sultry curvy model on the homepage of Hips and Curves, and immediately recognize her as the model that Sita had shot. That model was Denise Bidot. Since then, Denise has gone on to become undoubtedly the most recognizable face (and figure) for Hips and Curves lingerie. Recently the career of this unique beauty has started to skyrocket, and PLUS Model Magazine had the chance to sit down with her in person and find out more about who she is, and how she feels about her newfound success.

When she breezed into the L.A. restaurant where we met for the interview, I was immediately struck by her natural good looks. Her photos are very representative of her beauty in person. She was warm and friendly, and as we started our conversation it was more like chatting with an old friend than doing an interview.

Denise's exotic beauty certainly lies in her heritage, as she is a mix of Arabic and Puerto Rican descent, and hails from Miami. When she was a young teenager, she had acting aspirations, and her mom invested money in those dreams. At 5'8" and 130 pounds, she was told she needed to lose weight. At one point she did a national PSA for the Partnership of Drug Free America, and she was proud to have booked the job when she had been told she was "too big" for acting work, but getting more work proved difficult.

She spent several years hanging around with the young Hollywood/Disney crowd (let's just say she had some extremely high profile friends) and she decided if she was not in front of the camera, she would be just as happy behind it. She just knew she wanted to be part of the entertainment industry. Denise became a makeup artist, and it was here in L.A. that her interesting segue into modeling came about.

Denise was working as a makeup artist on "The Tyra Banks Show" on an episode called "The Panty Party". This episode featured plus models in their bras and panties. It was during the filming of this episode that Denise did the makeup for plus model Robin (Cricket). When Robin asked Denise to do her makeup for an upcoming shoot with Sita, Denise jumped at the chance.
