Meet Supermodel Emme

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Curvy & Confident

Meet Supermodel Emme

For over two decades as a leading voice and face in the fashion industry, Emme is the iconic world’s first curvy supermodel. With the conviction that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, Emme has paved the way and given women the platform to feel beautiful and empowered.

A TV personality, model, mom, author, brand spokesperson, creative director of her clothing lines, lecturer and globally recognized women’s advocate for positive body image and self-esteem, Emme’s message is clear — to awaken the inner magnificence inherent in each of us, to be whole.

Emme is often consulted and interviewed in the media on eating disorders and body image, fashion trends and model diversity, as well as surviving cancer and women’s health. She has appeared on all the major networks, including on Today, Good Morning America, CBS The Early Show, CNN, MSNBC, Access Hollywood, and Entertainment Tonight. Her press coverage includes The New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, People, Glamour, Marie Claire, TIME, and the Wall Street Journal.

She has twice been selected to People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and Ladies’ Home Journal chose her as one of the “Most Important Women in America” and one of the “Most Fascinating Women of the Year.” These accolades are truly representative of her tireless commitment to advocacy. She has also been honored as one of Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year” and as one of Biography magazine’s “25 Most Influential Women.” Emme is an ambassador to The National Eating Disorders Association, honorary board member to Project Heal, and also donates her time to the Girl Scouts of America.

Emme’s passion for nature and fitness fuels her active lifestyle, which includes snowshoeing, boogie boarding, bike-athons, hiking, yoga and swimming.
