About Me

I'm a fitness model...heehee
Nah, I am Velvet D'Amour,  busy changing the 'face' of beauty.
I have modeled for John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Nick Knight, Ellen Von Unwerth etc.
I am an American in Paris, currently signed with Contreband Model agency (WANTED and AGENCE PLUS divisions).
In Belgium, I am represented by Dominique Model agency.
My reason for having a MM profile is that I enjoy working with people who do not have a limited concept of beauty, rebels of fashion if you will. And clearly, not everyone out there is seeking 250 lbs models...yet!
I have been fortunate to come across very creative, open minded people who delight in bucking the norm, by including me in their projects.
I like to shoot as much as I like to model, so please check out my photo profile on here 540056.
All the best to everyone!

PS Notes on nudity...
I'd say a good 99.999% of the artists interested in working with me wanna get me naked, not that I blame them, lol
It is quite the odd dicodomy that as a society, fat is viewed with derision, yet should one go out on a limb and include a genuinely voluptuous model, 9 times out of 10 they will do so by harkening back to the Renaissance. Rubens and the like, are seemingly our only reference point for a larger body.
Given I shoot as well, and certainly have photographed my fair share of nudes of all shapes and sizes, I understand the drive.
Were Herb Ritts to come back to life, I'd greet the boy starkers.
I have posed nude for DanieleIango, Rancinan, and in the film Avida, so certainly, I do not dismiss all tasteful nude propositions, but my main reason for modeling is in fact, as a political statement; that we need to diversify modern standards of beauty. If we continually marry the fat body with nude classics, then we are hardly creating a revolution. It's too easy in a sense, one gets a 'different' look and perhaps is praised for such, but if you really want to be revolutionary, then why not do a FASHION shoot with a bigger body versus pulling out the old Botticelli standard?
