Later haters, Nargis Fakhri is a curvy queen

We love women who’re comfortable in their own skin, and Nargis Fakhri has always been a card-carrying member of the boss lady club. As Fakhri took to the ramp for designer Anushree Reddy, the internet’s obsessive focus on the usual banalities – weight – began to kick up a fuss.

Words like “bubbly”, “chubby” and the is-this-even-a-compliment “thick” began to fly faster than racist slurs at a Trump rally. 

For her part, Nargis looked as confident and in control as always, staring down the camera in a fierce-off where there was only one winner. This lady is one tall drink of body confidence, and we only hope she hits up a few more red carpets around the country before jetting off to another exotic location.

Speaking of which: Nargis, could we have your life?
