Model Paloma Elsesser talks to Danielle Radojcin. Raised in Los Angeles, she moved to New York to pursue a successful modelling career, championed by the make-up artist Pat McGrath and American Vogue. Her ‘plus-size’ body and her celebration of it, as well as her mixed race heritage and exceptional beauty, have made her the perfect mouthpiece for diversity awareness in the digitally-connected era, a responsibility she has embraced by communicating regularly with her adoring and highly engaged Instagram audience. She also talks about shopping, her thoughts on the fashion industry and the five things that are most important to her.
