Meet Gabi Gregg. Or maybe you have already. If not from her blog, young, fat & fabulous, then from her campaigning and winning out for the position of MTV TJ (twitter jockey). Either way, she embodies her blog's name with an emphasis on the fabulous.

Wedges: Pour La Victoire
In the blog's first post, she addressed an all important question that many in the fashion industry have pondered - or ignored - for many a runway seasons:
"The dilemmas of fat fashion are innumerable, which brings us to the burning question that I'm sure is running through all of your minds this very second: is it possible to be both fat and fabulous? I'm not gonna lie, it is a hell of a lot harder for us than the waifs whose biggest shopping concern is that the store may be out of their size (hello, try going into a store that doesn't carry your size in the first place). But, my fat friends, do not give up hope, for I know from first hand experience that while it may be difficult, it is not impossible. Learn to put in a little more effort in the right places, and you'll be surprised at how damn good your size 22 body will look when you see yourself in that dressing room mirror, honey.This blog is dedicated to those girls like me; the ones who are so in love with an industry that is, well, so not in love with us. Rants, raves, reviews; it's all here, baby. We're young. We're fat. We're fabulous."
