Plus-size fashionistas GabiFresh, Nadia Aboulhosn, and Tess Munster give an awesome “eff you” to their fat-phobic haters in this remake of Beyoncé’s “***Flawless” video.
“This video is dedicated to the mainstream media, to the fashion industry, to internet bullies, and to anyone else who thinks it’s their right to try to make us feel less than because of their insecurities,” Gabi writes on her site. “You don’t have to be a certain size to claim your flawlessness. Fat is not a flaw.”
She also notes that teaming up with Nadia and Tess was a way to undermine the competitiveness forced on so many women: “We are not competing to be the Top Dog in our niche–we are supportive of each other and are all working toward the same goal: body positivity and inclusivity.”
That’s a goal we can all bow down to.
