Plus Size Model Christina Mendez Releases First- Look Pictorials To Selected Media and Industry Insiders

New York, NY, April 21, 2012 — Christina Mendez continues to cross barriers and defeat the odds, leaving her mark in the entertainment industry as one of the most successful “Plus Size” models today. Within a life-changing year, which included the announcement and birth of her daughter Cailey Christine, Christina triumphantly returned to her passion of modeling 3 months after Cailey’s birth.

With high-profile features on Good Morning America and Rachael Ray modeling for Modern Family’s star Sofia Vergara’s Kmart Fashion segment, BET’s Rip the Runway, New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week, Rocawear.com, Qristyl Frazier’s Epitome Collection, WABC (NY) speaking on behalf of Autism Speaks, numerous commercials, and being ranked #3 on Oddee’s list of “10 Incredibly Hot Women Who Are Larger Than A Size 12”, this is only the tip of the iceberg for this curvaceous latina.

“I’m a strong believer in fate/faith and I am so happy that the industry has welcomed me back after my hiatus. My goal as a plus size model will always be to continue to diversify my resume with brands and campaigns that truly embrace what I have to offer. Working with the amazing styling team I was fortunate enough to partner up with, these new photos definitely show my versatility, says Christina Mendez.
