year's winner of the Full Figure Fashion Week Award for Best Plus Commercial Print Model of the Year is the HOT Brazilian model Fluvia Lacerda.

The Red Carpet event starts at 6:00pm, expect to see Fluvia there in full glam.

"The fact that I won this award is a major deal and I'm very passionate about my work, mostly because I feel that I represent the body image of many women," says Lacerda. "I'm not only a healthy woman, but one who wears a size 18 and am confident about it."

As late as last year, mainstream fashion argued the legitimacy of plus-sized fashion in the industry. Full figured fashion has made significant strides over the past few years, and continues to earn much deserved credit and praise for positive body imagery for women. Overcoming society's stigma, Full Figured Fashion Week™ celebrated those who have contributed to the plus size fashion industry.

This year's Commercial Print Model of the Year is Fluvia Lacerda, a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and resident of America's fashion capital, New York City. Lacerda moved to New York to study Language. It happened as if in a dream or a movie: approached on a cross-town bus by a magazine editor, Fluvia began a fulfilling modeling career. Today Fluvia's face and curves are some of the most successful and requested worldwide. Lacerda is currently the only Brazilian internationally plus size model, making her an icon in her homeland.

Featured on the cover of the 2007 Curves calendar, Fluvia has worked for an overabundance of well-known brands such as Torrid,Monif C., Igigi, Fashion Bug, Kmart, Bilka, Takko Fashions, and Eliza Parker.
