I am Gemma Cruickshank, I am a plus size model. I currently hold the title of Miss BBW International 2012 (Crowned November 10th 2012) which is the first Plus Size Beauty Pageant within the UK. During my pageant process I was chosen by the producers of the BBC Three’s documentary ‘Britain’s Biggest Beauty Queens’ to be followed out of the twenty finalists. The documentary followed the six month lead up to the pageant final, where I was crowned first place out of 300 applicants. The documentary was part of BBC Three’s body confidence season; my crowning was televised 28/11/12. The documentary was the most shown within the season and was ranked as BBC Three’s most watched alongside Russell Howard’s good news.
I have also appeared on ITV this morning modelling plus size Christmas party wear 05/12/12, where I modeled an Anna Scholz plus size designer dress. I have been featured in the Sun, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, Local press, and Chat Magazine. I have featured on BBC Essex Radio, as well as international radio stations.
I am an inspirational speaker who is passionate about being plus size and educating society. I want to network within the industry to build my portfolio and establish plus size models within the main stream fashion industry. I am available for shoots, runway and public speaking. I am interested in fashion shoots as well as themed and editorial.
