#BLACKWOMANMAGIC - LIRIS CROSSE On DAILY VENUS DIVA MAG!!!





Chocolate-Covered RANDALLSTOWN, MD native DOROTHY COMBS MODELS Supermodel LIRIS CROSSE is the cover story for the June/ July 2018 NEW SEASON: FASHION FORWARD Issue of DAILY VENUS DIVA Magazine!!!


Here are a few interview interludes:

How did it feel to be a model on Season 16 of Project Runway?
Amazing! Proud! Revolutionary! To be a part of the very first season where they used plus models along with straight size models for the weekly designer challenges was historic and game changing! I feel we set a tone for the overall fashion industry as far as introducing CHANGE!
Has your perception of modeling changed over the years? If so, how?
Some as far as the diversity I would like to see with size and race. But I still look at modeling as an art form that has certain standards like any occupation mixed with a fluke of lucky genes. I’d like people to respect it as such. So many people look at modeling as anyone can do it or it’s so easy. That’s just not the truth. To become one of the greats you must work at it!
We’re almost half way through 2018. What has been your proudest moment of the year so far?
Well, I would say I just became an official spokesperson for Maggie Sottero Designs which is a huge brand in the bridal world! The fact that they wanted partner with me to help promote their brand to women of all sizes and ethnicities across the world, makes me so proud! I’ve always said representation matters so to represent in the bridal world where you don’t see many woman of size or color, is a big deal! 
Which three albums can you listen to non-stop, without skipping a song?
  1. Jill Scott – Who Is Jill Scott? – Words and Sounds, Vol. 1
  2. Beyoncé’s – B’day
  3. Lil Kim – Hard Core.
If you could go back in time and change anything in your career, what would you change and why?
I would maybe push up the advancement of social media just a little. I really see how it’s impacted change in the fashion industry for more diversity and how models have gotten more notoriety and work because of it.
