Tara Lynn’s career began the moment she summoned courage and walked through the doors of a Seattle modelling agency back in the late noughties. Because of her voluptuous frame, she was taken in as a plus-size model. Since always, high-end campaigns and features in esteemed magazines had been reserved for the “normal”-sized models. When Tara – and a few other plus-size girls – entered the industry, that fact was challenged.

For the first years of modelling, Tara worked out of Seattle while she finished her university studies. It wasn’t until she moved to New York that her career really took off. During the years since, she’s been on the cover of French and Spanish Elle, in France with the headline “The Body”. She’s also fronted H&M’s 2012 campaign Big is Beautiful and worked with Steven Meisel for the acclaimed cover shoot Belle Vere for Vogue Italia.

During a shoot with H&M the American took time to fill out our Top Model Secrets-questionnaire.
