Average American Female mannequin vs. Average American Female


Photography: Victoria Janashvili.

These shots were from her editorial shoot for Cosmopolitan Latina with plus size model Denise Bidot.

The lovely Ms. Bidot also appears in Janashvili's successfully kickstarted photography book Curves, which is coming this year.


Many women and men around the world struggle with body acceptance and self-love instead of embracing every curve they represent. Fashion photographer, Victoria Janashvili, has photographed some of the top straight- and plus-size cover models and influencers in the fashion industry. Through her work, she has uncovered the true beauty of these women, which has not been their physical appearance. But, their CONFIDENCE.

Janashvili has collaborated with some of the top international models and self-love advocates to showcase several types of curves in all shapes and sizes from different ethnic backgrounds and ages. CURVES, The Book is dedicated to illustrate the female beauty undefined by our society and its standards. Janashvili's artistic bare prints unveil inspiring testimonies on how it has lead these women to become confident through each curve photographed. Whether it's through body paint or a uniquely styled photo, each curve in this book pays an homage to establishing self-love.
