LUXE BEAUTIE JULY SPOTLIGHT
EVERY MONTH WE LOVE TO PUT A SPOTLIGHT ON BEAUTIES WHO SUPPORT THE LUXE MOVEMENT AND WHO ARE MAKING MOVES IN THE INDUSTRY! THIS MONTH WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF FEATURING MONIQUE CARTWRIGHT FROM ATLANTA, GA!
What are your views or thoughts about the plus size industry?
“I love everything about the REAL plus size industry! I do not feel that naked butt pics are considered modeling, or anything done without taste or class is to be considered as being apart of the plus size industry. The REAL industry is breaking down walls that has never been touched before! We are going in the right direction and we still have some work to do!”
Do you feel the society accepts “kurvy” women?
“We are not there yet. I feel that we are in a current trending phase of accepting curvy women. I still feel that most of society feels that we are fat and unhealthy no matter what. I hope that if we keep on this positive empowerment trend that we as curvy, healthy ladies and leaders will change the current perspective over time. All things have a season.
“I also feel that due to the overwhelming movement to embrace big butts, that has lead to this trend of accepting the “curvy ” lady as well. We are the ones who had these curves all along and was told that was not acceptable. We didn’t have to buy what God gave us, but until it was accepted in the rap game or in Hollywood it was not acceptable. Now that we have celebrities out here buying butts and hips and breast to look like us, it has now become acceptable. What will happen to this movement when Hollywood decides that Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Kim K., or Amber Rose is too fat too thick. we will go back to our old ways as a society? I hope we do not.
“The positive role models out here are making a real movement in our society: the Christina Mendez’s, Ashley Grahams, Jennifer Maitland, etc. Not only are they curvy, healthy ladies who embrace their curves but they made history! Landing SI covers and Playboy Covers where curvy was not found since Marilyn Monroe–and truthfully she was skinny compared to the curves of today’s modern woman–that’s making a positive long-lasting societal change, and that’s what I hope to one day partake of and follow in the footsteps of the mountain movers and inspire the younger generation of leaders and mountain movers! I am not a writer by no means, but I think you get my stance on this topic.”

What is your meaning of a “Luxe Beautie?”
“Luxe= luxury, luxurious.
Beautie- In the eye of the beholder.
In my opinion a Luxe Beautie is just that a luxury kurvaceous beauty!
I am curvy, confident, beautiful, and classy! I embrace my curves and love the finer things in life! I enjoy life and live life to the fullest! You ask me what is a Luxe Beautie? And I say that’s ME! A Kurvy queen with class and style!”
