While everyone in front of them, on the sides and all around them are losing their heads, there are some people who keep walking forward in life, staying focused on their goals and not losing theirs.

The beautiful and elegant shapely model Laura Catterall is one such person.

As Femcompetitor Magazine has researched and written about the new culture of the shapely runway model, there are several themes that are consistent in their stories. One overriding one is how they want to influence the world that, counter to the belief only thin women represent the beauty ideal, being a slightly larger and shapely woman is a great idea too.

We agree.

Laura Catterall agrees.

She just doesn’t want to talk about it.

She wants to focus on her work instead.

“I always want to stay focused on who I am, even as I’m discovering who I am.”……. Alicia Keys

Laura typically doesn’t do interviews and she doesn’t want to be known as a campaigner. She just wants to get on with her job.

The global site telegraph.co.uk in speaking with Laura shared, “Catterall is one of the UK’s most successful plus-size models, but instead of using her platform to speak up about body image like many of her peers, she prefers not to be a spokeswoman on the issue.”

Fair enough.

Regarding Laura’s rise and increasing demand for her services in the modeling world, when it comes to her career, there is still much to talk about.

Laura is happy to speak about that at her site lauracatterall.com.

Laura is a British fashion model represented by 12+Uk London and Muse New York. She is best known for featuring on the covers of Cosmopolitan France and The Sunday Times Style Magazine, starring in a short film for Italian Vogue, and for fronting campaigns for Italian fashion house Marina Rinaldi.

She has starred as a Kellogg’s ‘Special K Girl’ and appeared in numerous television adverts for Simply Be and Elena Miro.

Our luminary has also appeared in many high fashion editorials, most notably for Marie Claire France, Australian Cosmopolitan, British Cosmopolitan, and British ID magazine. She has built an extensive portfolio of commercial work for companies such as Marks & Spencer, Evans, JD Williams and Littlewoods.

Over the course of her career Laura has worked with major photographers such as Nick Knight, Kayt Jones, Marcus Ohlsshon, Bruno Juminer and film director Luca Finotti.

In her free time Laura loves to hike in the Cumbrian Lake District, being put through her paces on a Pilate’s reformer and exploring Nordic-inspired interior design and slow living blogs, magazines and literature (think hygge, think Kinfolk). Laura also holds a BA (Hons.) in Communication Studies from the University of Leeds.

Now that is what we would call being focused.

“The thing to remember is that the work comes first, and not to get distracted by anything else. If you keep focused on the work, everything else will fall into place. That’s my mantra now.”… James Nesbitt

She does have fun and as of this writing, here is a video that allows you behind the scenes at one of her photo shoots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73eRwqdwiD0

Her first rule for being charming is to feel comfortable with the clothes that you are wearing. She advises to always use a belt and dresses that will mark your waist, so that your body will become more defined and your silhouette will be sleek and smooth.

Very good advice and aesthetically pleasing.

Now that was regarding dress appearance with style.

Let’s take another look at her love of Nordic inspired interior design.

Do you know what that is? We suspect that most of us think that we know, but let’s get confirmation.

Scandinavian design is a term to represent a design movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality that emerged in the 1950s in the five Nordic countries of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark. While the term Scandinavia only refers to the three kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, it can be used colloquially to refer to all five of these countries.

The enjoyable site home-designing.com speaks to the characteristics of Laura’s interior love. “Scandinavian, Scandi, Norse Minimalism, there are as many names for Nordic interior design as there are variants of it. Characterized by white walls, light wooden floors, a constrained hand in styling and an abundance of natural light.”

Here is another view that speaks to the details and history at interiordesign.lovetoknow.com. “Scandinavian style interior design, all the rage in the 1950s, is experiencing a comeback. Its sleek lines and neutral palette are essentially timeless and add a sense of elegance to any home or office.

Carl Larsson is generally credited with creating Scandinavian style. It combines the neutral colors of the Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish landscape with a casual aged appearance. The long winters and lack of natural light in Scandinavia created a need for sleek and airy interiors that made the most of the available sunlight.

The Scandinavian color palette relies on basic colors: whites, from ecru to bright white, beiges, natural light wood tones, and light blues.”

That was as beautiful as it was educational.

Jack Canfield is the co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, which has more than 250 titles and 500 million copies in print in over 40 languages. In 2005 Canfield co-authored with Janet Switcher The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.

In terms of life focus he was once quoted as saying, “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”

Doesn’t that describe Laura?

Enjoy her sexy form now because Laura is focused on her future which includes becoming more involved in journalism.

We may not be able to salivate over her pictures as a model.

Yes we know that Laura doesn’t like to get on a platform regarding causes but her beautiful form and elegant behavior as an ambassador for the shapely model community speaks to a life in perfect focus.
