Plus Size Models Take On Beyonce's 'Flawless': This Video Is Amazing

Plus-size fashion writer Gabi Gregg fronts a new video tribute to Beyonce's mega hit 'Flawless' alongside fellow plus-size bloggers Tess Munster and Nadia Aboulhosn... The result? Totally amazing.

The concept behind Queen Bey's 2013 track is that every woman should celebrate and love herself - no matter what the haters say, a message which struck a chord with Gabi who set out to recreate B's video with plus-size women.

"When I heard Beyonce telling her haters to 'bow down' in the song I immediately fell in love," she told Cosmopolitan, explaining why she wants to challenge the "traditional" notions of beauty.

"As a fat woman of colour, I'm often treated differently than my thin, white peers. By brands, by fellow bloggers, by the media," she went on.

"I get passed over for things I'm more than qualified for. I get stares and cold shoulders at fashion events. I hear whispers. I get hate mail and trolling comments from people who call me disgusting and say I shouldn't be allowed in public.

"Like Bey, I usually just brush these people off, and I never give them power by addressing them here or anywhere else. But it gets tiring, and sometimes I'm really tempted to drop the ladylike thing and just kind of... go off."

"For me, this video is to show all of my followers that you define your definition of beauty," fellow video star Nadia wrote in a blog post introducing the project. "Don't let anyone tell you to be or look a certain way. We are all flawless and [keep] reminding yourself of that."
