To become a recognizable face in the marginalized plus-size fashion community is exceptional. To have an impact that transcends time is extraordinary. Plus-size model Mia Amber Davis accomplished both in her short yet remarkable time on Earth.
The statuesque beauty was a fixture on the plus-size fashion scene with her supple glowing skin, enviable curves and regal poise. In shoots for such brands as Essence Magazine, Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant and Monif C., Davis radiated a beauty and confidence that distinguished her from the crowd.
The voluptuous vixen was as smart as she was beautiful; Davis started her career in television as a production assistant-turned-producer at The Ricki Lake Show before falling in love with plus-size fashion.
Once she set her sights on the full-figured modeling industry, she took the business by storm. At the time of her passing, Davis was one of the few plus-size models to ever appear in a major film as the curvy seductress in Road Trip, she was the face of the 2010 and 2011 campaign for The Fuller Woman Expo and had served as the Creative Editor-at-Large for Plus Model Magazine.
Mia Amber Davis’ passion and dedication to plus-size women was palpable in everything she did from modeling to blogging. She will be remembered as one of the community’s most beautiful, positive and confident icons.
There are no details yet on the cause of death. Mia Amber Davis is survived by her husband, Michael Yard.
