In line with the brands ethos, to celebrate "All curvy women” all of the women will then be featured on the website, modelling the Scarlett & Jo brand.
The competition received such an overwhelming positive response that the competition had to close after 2 days having received over 200 applicants. As a result of this passionate attitude towards the brand, every applicant was invited to take part in the shoot. Travelling from Europe and across the UK, representing women between the ages of 17 to 40+ with sizes 14 to 32 and from 4’10” to 6’3” - this is set to be the most inclusive fashion shoot. Three of the girls will also be lucky enough to win the Face of Curvy Petite, The Face of Curvy Tall, and finally The Face of Scarlett and Jo. These winners will be regularly featured throughout campaigns and on the website in promotion of the brand throughout the year. Alongside this prize, Ms Curvaceous UK have organised a national competition to become the new Ms C UK 2016 and The Face of Scarlett & Jo winner, will be automatically entered into the semi-final stage.

The Scarlett & Jo ethos has always been to make real clothing for real woman, the brand believes a woman should feel body-confident and comfortable whatever her size. Gifi Fields, founder of Scarlett & Jo believes women use clothing as an extension of their personality and created Scarlett & Jo for plus size women to feel girly, feminine, sexy and confident. Gifi Fields commented; “I am extremely passionate about body confidence and feel every woman deserves the right to express themselves through clothing. This will be the largest plus size photo-shoot ever organised, in fact the largest fashion shoot ever staged in Europe in terms of number. I can’t wait to see over 100 fun and fearless ladies bringing our dresses to life, it’s a very exciting time for us.”
Each of these ladies will be treated as a VIP for the day at the Scarlett & Jo head office in London Bridge for make-up and styling across two outfits. Taking part in production and lifestyle shots both individually and in groups and then finally a whole group shot over at Bankside, London Bridge for a photo-call at 1pm.
