Get ready for a very special new episode, dropping FRIDAY, January 13th, with an exclusive interview with Supermodel and Life Coach Emme!
So, FRIDAY the 13th is actually your lucky day! Because your favorite personal stylist Holly Katz, is expanding her focus on CELEBRATING WOMEN-OWNED BRANDS and WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS on the podcast - all year - this year! #Yaaaaaasssss!
And who better to PUMP US UP with confidence and wisdom than our new BFFF (Best Fashion Friend Forever), than supermodel and fashion mold-breaker, EMME?!
After three decades empowering women and influencing (shapeshifting / disrupting) the worlds of fashion and beauty, Emme has all this experience and more to share!
We are all about Fashion Over 40 - and we mean, WAAAAAYYY over 40.
So, it is perfect timing that EMME sits down with Holly to talk about loving who you are - no matter what stage of life you are in.
Emme has been a trusted voice in the fashion, wellness, beauty, and news industries for more than 20 years, and she is widely regarded as a trailblazing social reformer for women's empowerment and positive body image. She is the founder of the True Beauty Foundation, whose mission is to enhance young people's mental wellness.
Emme's passion is to "feel extraordinarily free in our bodies and live our most inspired lives possible" as a TV personality, brand spokesperson, TV and podcast host, consultant, author, Revlon spokeswoman, keynote speaker, and creative director of her clothing lines (EMME®, mebyEMME®, and TrueBeautybyEMME®).
Emme was chosen twice for People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People," and Ladies' Home Journal named her one of the "Most Important Women in America" and one of the "Most Fascinating Women of the Year."
In 2018, Oprah Magazine dubbed her the "Godmother of the Full-Figured Industry." Emme is also a TEDx speaker. She has also been recognized as one of the "Women of the Year" by Glamour Magazine and one of the "25 Most Influential Women" by Biography magazine.
So, now you know that EMME is a BFD. (If you need to Google that, then go ahead.) But this girl knows fashion. And she knows women’s fashion over 40...and how to love living in your own skin after 40.
Join us for a delightful, enlightening and refreshing conversation about loving the woman that you are. Not what you see on Instagram. Not the one you see in photoshopped images in magazines. Not what the trends tell you to be.
In Emme’s words:
“I love finding joy within the honoring of my body and all that it can do. I love being in fashion, being able to be involved in fashion and wearing trend-appropriate fashion. I was also an athlete growing up, so I love being out and about and being fit.”
Emme has written a book and done TV shows, and it's all around honoring the body, all the different shapes and sizes and colors and all that we are - and not listening to voices that dictate that “you should be this way, or you should be that way.”
“I don't want to feel like I am “less-than” every single step of my life. I want to feel infused with joy. That is it. It's an inward journey to tap in, tune in and turn on to that.”
“So, when you hear messaging on the outside, when you hear conversations around the dinner table, when you hear cocktail party discussions, or you see billboards and your image - or your friends’ images - are not reflected in the ideas of beauty, just know that deep down inside, that if you're rocking your life and you're in it to win it, that's the best place to be, instead of trying to change yourself.”
For instance, one day, you might not have a big butt and then suddenly the trend is that you need to have a bigger butt. So, you run out and try and get one. Or, the next day you need to have a certain hairstyle, so blah, blah, blah. Don't spend time being something you're not.
From her early days in journalism to becoming the first plus-size supermodel to becoming a life coach, EMME’s journey is one all women can relate to.
She has broken every rule and every mold that women have been forced to believe for decades – and then – she walked New York Fashion Week runway in her 50s for Chromat - in lingerie - no less!
(Or, very much less!) This is GIVING. US. LIFE.
Her inspiring, nurturing and thoughtful approach to being body-positive, to tapping into to her female super-powers and spreading human happiness, is just a beyond refreshing conversation to hear. You'll want to save this one.
