"That's not our demographic."

My name is Nancy Upton. I'm a size 12 and wanted to show American Apparel my fresh face (and full figure). My good friend Shannon Skloss came over to take some "booty-ful" photos of me...but I just couldn't stop eating.

I came in first place in the AA 'Next BIG Thing' contest, but won't be modeling for the company any time soon.

You can find me on Twitter: @Nancyupton
Or email: nancyupton@gmail.com
 
Whoa. So, today has been off the charts crazy. Lots of exciting calls and emails to do some writing and some talking, and lots of emails expressing love.
For that, I say a big time thank you. 
I have NOT been contacted by American Apparel, which is the question I’m being asked the most at this moment. I also am not a secret employee who worked for American Apparel and surprise, they planned the whole thing. (This was probably one of the favorite comments a friend has forwarded to me so far. Conspiracy theories FTW.)
Some really great discussion going on at the following places:
Yahoo News UK and Ireland
AOL UK
The Independent
Culture Map Austin
The Daily Beast
Death and Taxes
I Am Bored (thanks, Fancylad, I appreciate the sentiment)
Opposing Views
The Frisky (round up)
Fashionista (It’s a round up too, but I couldn’t pass up the fact that today Ali Lohan, Daphne Guinness and I are all in the same title of a blog. I smell a sitcom!)
D Magazine
The Gloss
Holy Moly!
Death by Dress Code
Trendencias (I mean, seriously, how cool is the tagline “Adios American Apparel, hola Nancy Upton)
The Sizist
Seems like this subject is getting double amounts of press in the UK and in Brazil. Anybody have insight as to why those two places? It is super cool.
Should I abuse my power and have adorable, plus-sized Englishmen send me photos of themselves covered in salad dressing? I shan’t, I shan’t. But know the temptation is great.
