Felicity Hayward is a British curve model, social media influencer and activist. Felicity has quickly become one of the most recognised curve models and she is renowned for breaking barriers in the beauty and fashion industry. Felicity was first scouted dancing to Diana Ross in an East London pub by fashion photographer Miles Aldridge while impersonating the late great Anna Nicole Smith. She was an early pioneer of the plus-size industry in the UK through her ground-breaking collaborations with a multitude of world-renowned fashion brands. With an I-D cover under her belt, a MAC Cosmetics campaign, face to Loreal and Katy Perry’s INDI fragrance to name a few even when "curve" wasn't popular, she has used these opportunities to gain momentum on her social platforms to promote body confidence and self-love. She has also worked with some of the most credible fashion photographers in the world, including Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen Von Unwerth and Rankin.
Felicity was one of the first models to show stretch marks, cellulite and scars in global campaigns with brands such as Missguided and The Body Shop, which were inspired by her digital campaign and body positivity movement #selflovebringsbeauty. Felicity’s movement promotes diversity, confidence and acceptance in the fashion industry for everyone.
Alongside this commercial work, Felicity has also hosted on Channel 4’s Naked Beach and this year she will launch her third collaborative lingerie collection with Playful Promises.
