Wall mane and glitter dress – model Tess Holliday shines in disco look

Model Tess Holliday is not only known for her body positivity activism, but also for her glam style. At a party she now showed again how well she masters it: with perfect curls and eye-catching dress.

Wow, what a look! For her first party since the beginning of the Corona pandemic model Tess Holliday drove neatly on – in disco look! At the event in Palos Verdes Estates, California, the 36-year-old wore a shimmering black dress with spaghetti straps that gave off a glam vibe.

Inspiration of the evening: disco, disco!

To her knee-length, figure-hugging glitter dress the model combined golden slides, a round, glittery handbag with fringes and big earrings. Her long, red hair fell over Tess Holliday’s shoulders as a voluminous, perfectly styled mane of curls. The social media star’s party look (she has over 2.2 million followers on Instagram alone) was rounded off by subtle glam makeup with fake lashes and glossy lips.

This was the inspiration for Tess Holliday’s disco look.

On Instagram, the model shared some outfit photos with her fans. It was her first event since Corona, Holliday writes there. And jokes directly that she probably stayed at home a little too long. Because when a reporter asked her about the inspiration behind the outfit, she could only think of "a slutty little disco ball" (in German: Eine kleine, schlampige Discokugel).

Tess Holliday is known for her red carpet looks and activism.

Model Tess Holliday is not only known for her glamorous looks on the red carpet, but also for her body positivity activism. The US-American made headlines around the world, for example, in the summer of 2020, when she sparked a debate about the hypocrisy of the fashion world.

Holliday, who wore a glittery strawberry dress by designer Lirika Matoshi to the Grammy Awards in early 2020, ended up on every major fashion magazine’s Worst Dressed list. When dünne female influencers posed with the same dress on TikTok and Instagram a few months, it launched as the it-piece of the summer. The activist addressed this öffentlich – and kicked off a great discussion über the social double standard against dünnen and fat people.

Despite this double standard, Tess Holliday always shows herself as she pleases, sometimes in a disco look, sometimes in a strawberry dress, sometimes just in lingerie. And is thus a great role model in terms of self-love and diversity in the fashion industry.
