If you have the title of the documentary handy, that would be great. I'd love to give that a go and educate myself more on the inner workings of the industry.
I could be wrong, but the description sounds a lot like "Girl Model", which focused on young Russian teenagers recruited to model in Japan (and being utterly miserable the entire time). It used to be on Netflix at one point, and I'm sure there's a torrent copy out there somewhere.

Not just modeling, but look at health and fitness magazines. Compare the women in today's magazines to the ones from even five years ago and it's an entirely different group of women.

Ironically or not, the only time I see the same women in both magazines is a supplements ad that still using the exact same picture of the model they paid for five years earlier because why spend more money to get a different model to take a picture?

It was ages ago and on youtube, I cannot for the life of me remember the title. I was sort of bingeing a huge amount of clips on the subject and it was one of those that just came up in the sidebar. The Girl Model thing sounds familiar, that might be it or at least deal with much the same issues as the thing I saw.

ETA: Just watched the Girl Model trailer and no, that wasn't it. The models in the thing I saw were older - late teens as opposed to this literal child labour stuff and in Europe. Imagine being 13-14 and stuck out where you don't speak the language, no family, no friends, dealing with adults who have power over you, under immense pressure to earn money for your family back home and be a success. Not to mention the exploitation that exists out there, or really anywhere where there are undersupervised, beautiful underaged girls alone desperate for opportunities. Tess has had it super-easy compared to this lot.

Tess did a sponsored post for her last remaining client, a hair product company. She's sized herself out of most plus sized lines, but she can still put products in her hair and twirl around in a tent sized bathing suit.

She is enormous, and her arm fupas are larger than small children. There is no way she can lift her arms to wash her own hair, let alone style it.

Say something nice: her back tits are coming in wonderfully.

Like the laws of physics? Talk to your joints and heart about the stress you're putting them under and you might think differently.

I guess the monochrome filter is more tasteful and hides the state of her dimpled flesh better than colour would.

ETA: Oh, I looked at the company's page and not a trace of her. In fact their models are mostly very athletic and fit-looking women. A case of targeting Tess's audience but beyond that, not wanting the association with her upfront on their own social media because she's ... ah, not everyone's idea of aspirational?

I don't know that I've ever seen her arms from this specific angle. My god.

Nope, definitely because of her abortion. She said so, so it must be true.

She's aged a lot in the last year.

Holy hell she looks awful. No wonder she delayed her end of the bargain in promoting this campaign (they released it more than 3 weeks ago and it took her until now to share the video): not only did they film her from the side, and angle she NEVER shows of herself in attempt to pretend she doesn't weigh nearly 400 lbs - she looks awful. She's only 34, but her skin is terrible. And she's shilling a hair oil that's supposed to make your hair look shiny - but her hair is clearly fried and splitting, with uneven ends.

She got money, but was it worth this humiliation? You'd think someone at Sebastian Pro hates her.

Can we make this "I regret everything" face a thing?

Oh, I dunno. She may die aspirating her own vomit.

I looked on her site and Sebastian pro for the whole thing, but don’t see it? Maybe a link?

What I did see is gross. And on Sebastians site, only 7 people commented.

HAHA no way you can jam your hands into your sides to make a pretend waist from THAT angle Tess. Boy does she look self-conscious in those walking scenes. Almost like the lie she sells others and herself is being exposed. Body positive my arse, you can tell she hates herself unless she’s in full control of the photo angles.

I don't understand how the pain is not great enough to inspire change at this point.

I don’t keep up with this thread regularly but nice to see gay hubby is finally vamos.

I think Tess was always this mentally ill Aussie gay dude’s ticket to LA and some alternative indie famous lifestyle he thought he wanted. He isn’t very talented so he became one of the countless LA dudes eeking an existence leeching off someone with small niche notoriety.

The gay dude with a super fat bitch is the funny part. Fat girls and gay guys were paired up in the old homophobic era. It gave the gay guy a beard who wouldn’t demand much, and a desperate fat girl a husband. But it’s a weird fucking thing in the modern era. I can’t make any sense of it other than him thinking Tess was a good visa and meal ticket. From the various leaks it’s obvious most of their sex was with other people and Tess threw herself at any willing dick in a pointless attempt to make him jealous...while he caught strange dick all over LA. (I bet he got laid a lot with all the gay hanger ins in the fashion world too. All u can eat cock buffet)

I’m not convinced that dump she’s hosting a yard sale at isnt where Tess is shacked up atm. I doubt Jolene is allowed to have her own place, or could afford one on what Tess pays. She was an on-call 24/7 servant and babysitter.

I could almost see Jolene leaving Tess’s servitude due to lack of paychecks, getting a real job and her own place...only for Tess to waddle on in the door one day and move in. If she’s still sticking by Tess it’s only thanks to the poor little boy. Nobody would want to leave a toddler in Tess’s solo care.

Tess will spend her very last dime on hair extensions, nails and make-up. I could see her squatting with her kids in a dump but insisting she had to spend $1k on fake hair for her next IG photo set.

Wow, these are some fantastic and unseen angles! Clearly she pissed off the wrong people at Sebastian Pro because they made her look as unflattering as humanly possible. :story:

She absolutely has surpassed 350 and is likely in the 380-400 range as many here predicted. These photos prove it. The gunt don't lie.

It's so obvious that, behind the filters and Facetune, Tess is a deeply self conscious and insecure woman. Her body language when she walks (remember the runways videos?) are huge (lol) indicators of it. She doesn't carry herself with confidence. Gee, it's almost like perhaps caring for your body and losing weight might help you feel physically and mentally better, Ryann!

Here's some from the website; god damn did she piss of either the photographer, or the photo editor, or both? Her hair, the thing she was hired to model, looks awful - dry and dull. And these higher res photos show how bad her skin is even in full makeup. Also, lol at putting Tess in a shot with a normie model. She looks thrilled.

She binges to dull the pain. Vicious cycle. She's going to morph into Big AL within a few years if she stays on the same trajectory, and considering her "friends" brought her multiple bags of potato chips and other junk food when gay Nicki skipped town, things don't look good.
