It's official, Tess Holliday is a full-fledged MiLk model.

The plus-size stunner (born Tess Munster) became the first model of her size and height (size 22, 5'5) to be signed to a major agency, MiLk Model Management, earlier this year. Now, her first agency photo shoot has been revealed.

Photographed by Catherine Harbour, the black and white shots feature the 29-year-old beauty wearing a T-shirt and briefs. Her locks are left down in a brushed out waves, and her tattoos are in full view.


"So thrilled that I can finally share these images. I shot with @catherineharbour in London last month & this was the result 🙌🏻 Thanks to my agent for pushing me out of my comfort zone! MUAH," she captioned the photo.

Another photo shows the Sea by Monif C swearwear campaign star laughing and smiling for the camera.

I have so much to smile about these day! Life is good ❤️ Nick made me laugh during the shoot & Catherine captured it perfectly.

A close-up shot of the Los Angeles-based model was also posted, this time in colour, showing off her gorgeous red locks.

"I feel like since signing to MiLK it's challenged everything I thought I knew about modelling.. In the best way," she told the Daily Mail of the shoot. "I push myself so much harder and really step out of my comfort zone, and you can see that with these images. My life has changed in the best way and I feel like the best is yet to come."

We agree, and can't wait to see what else is in store for Tess!
