Haven’t heard of model Tara Lynn? Brace yourself, because the plus-size “it girl” just landed the November cover of Elle Spain, rocking black short-shorts, a black leather jacket, and a “hell yeah” attitude.
The cover line accompanying the image reads, "Mujer Real," or “Real Woman” in English. Shot by photographer Xavi Gordo, who has snapped celebrities such as Helena Christensen and Poppy Delevingne, Lynn is also featured in a seven-page inside editorial, modeling fall 2013 basics. She is shown sprawled on the floor wearing a little black dress, perched on a stool in a fitted trench coat and stilettos, showing leg in just a long-sleeved black shirt, and revealing her wild side in a leopard-print blouse.
She's certainly not new to the world of fashion mags. Once dubbed “The Body” by French Elle (the magazine featured Lynn on its April 2010 cover and in a 20-page editorial spread), the Seattle-born beauty's résumé is impressive. While she’s never landed the cover of an American magazine, Lynn fronted H&M’s 2012 spring plus-size swimwear line “Big Is Beautiful” in which she lounged poolside wearing leopard-print one-piece bathing suits and sheer cover-ups. She's also graced the covers of Vogue Italia (June 2011) and V magazine (January 2010) and scored a blue jeans editorial in the August 2010 issue of Glamour.
