Charli Howard is a British model at the vanguard of the Body Positivity movement, who rose to prominence after her open letter – a powerful indictment of the modelling industry – went viral. She has been interviewed by the BBC, CNN and Channel 4; has featured in Vogue, Elle and Glamour magazines; has amassed a large Instagram following (@charlihoward); and stars in the forthcoming feature-length documentary, Straight/Curve.
Charli is the founder of the All Woman Project, and wishes to extend her message of positivity to children – to encourage them to love themselves exactly as they are. Modelling-wise, she has fronted campaigns for Maybelline, Mango, Desigual and Nike, among others. Her StyleLikeU video alone has clocked over 1 million views, and she receives messages of support and admiration from young girls every day.
Charli’s guide to mental health and body positivity for teens will be published by Penguin Random House Children’s in 2018.
In addition, her debut middle grade novel, Splash!, will published by Nosy Crow in 2018.
