Meet Kris Yeo from Canada who shot with us for the first time in June when we photographed Sydney's Closet Prom 2015 plus size dresses.
Kris rocked the frocks! No question she'd be crowned Prom Queen! Did you see Kris gracing the July issue of Plus Model Magazine. Congrats on being a drop-dead gorgeous plus size cover model!

Kris flew into St. Louis from Toronto for the weekend shoot at Studio Altius in St. Louis. We lost a few heartbeats when we went to pick her up at the hotel at 7 a.m. Saturday. The front desk said she had never checked in the night before. We knew her plane had been delayed by bad storms. But we also knew the flight hadn't been cancelled. A quick cell phone call reveals Kris was registered - but with her name spelled wrong. Kris quickly became BFFs with the other models on the set. It was so much fun sitting down with her for this "Meet the Model" interview.

Q: How did you get started as a plus size model?
I got started by putting my pictures on Model Meyhem. I was then scouted by Chantale Nadeau, she took me under her wing and placed me with my first agency FORD. Modeling was something that I always dreamed of doing, but never thought that I had the ability because of my size. I decided to take a chance after seeing other plus sized models. I am happy that I believed in myself! I wanted to be a part of the change.
Q: What’s the one favorite item in your closet you’d never be persuaded to give away?
I have a pair of lime green pumps with a chrome heel. They do not even fit...they are so beautiful, you could not pay me to get rid of them.

Q: If you could spend an hour with any celebrity, who would it be?
Andy Samberg- He is absolutely hilarious!!
Q: You never leave home without what item in your bag (can’t be your phone!)?
Q: What do you wear when you want to dress to impress?
: I always turn to a little black dress, it is a classic statement that can be accessorized to match any event or look that you are going for.

Q: If you wanted to stop traffic, what would you wear?

Q. What fashion trend(s) are you obsessing over right now?
I love all of the bright colors that are seen on the fashion racks, love bold statements that are not too dangerous.
Q: What’s the best steal or deal you ever got clothes shopping?
I went into a Michael Kors store and a store associate had placed the wrong price over a purse
. When I went to the cash, she gave me the bag which was supposed to be retailed at 400.00 for 200. I was overjoyed!

Q: What is your dream date?
I would love to be picked up and taken for a ride in a air balloon over looking the town of Bradford that I grew up in.
