Expectations that tabloids, in their coverage would behave this way is well, expected.

Despite their claims of professionalism and standards, often the mainstream media when needed behaves in the very same way.

It’s called throwing a grenade into the room.

Then you hope for an explosion. Next, a real conversation.

It’s all about the questions asked.

The penetrating question that the person interviewed doesn’t want to answer. The question designed to humiliate and embarrass. The question presented to manipulate a controversial to stupid remark that will anger other people.

Not at you. At the person foolish enough to let their emotions get the best of them.

Then the fun starts.

In the case of the gorgeous curvy model Bree Warren she’s not throwing any grenades into the room but controversy does seem to follow her.

At the global news and information site dailytelegraph.com.au the writer Lizza Gebilagin in her May 28, 2016 article opens the door. “WOMEN everywhere are asking, how is Bree Warren classified as a plus-size model, and what does that mean for the rest of us?

“I can’t believe this is considered ‘plus size’. What is wrong with society?” asks one woman.

“This is plus size? Um, how? I must be a whale then,” another says.”


What do you say? Is Bree plus size?

Let’s allow Bree to speak for herself.

In the same article Bree is quoted as expressing, “I’m tall, I’m in proportion, I have wide hips, and I’m bigger than the average model but it doesn’t always translate in photos because I’m healthy and in shape. I’m the first to admit that the term ‘plus size’ is pretty silly. Unfortunately, it’s an industry term for any model over a size 10.”

Okay makes sense. For the moment it appeases.

Time for a closer look at Bree. That’s a great idea right?

Reading her site is a real plus.

At her dynamic site breewarren.com we appreciate the basic resume. “Growing up in Queensland, spending much of her childhood at the beach or in the pool, Bree is the quintessential Aussie beach babe.

Today, she spends most of her time working as a plus-size model in New York, where she has been based for the past three years. Blessed with a body that doesn’t fit the traditional model mold, Bree is part of a new wave of models challenging the size stereotypes in the industry. Having played netball, basketball and water polo at a national level as a teenager, she has long understood the importance of an active lifestyle. Now, with a growing social following, Bree has emerged as a go-to girl for body confidence.

Beginning her international modelling career in 2011, Bree worked with ASOS Curve in London and quickly became one of Australia’s most sought-after curvy exports.

In 2016, Bree was featured on the cover of Body & Soul Australia, as well as in US Women’s Health magazine. She was also the first curvier model to shoot campaigns for both Tigerlily and Lorna Jane and has been seen in the likes of Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Marie Claire, Elle and Vogue. Holding degrees in both Journalism and Business Management from the University of Queensland, Bree has also penned several published pieces including a column for the Telegraph UK. See PRESS for more on Bree’s work to date.

With her modelling career already spanning the best part of a decade, Bree has travelled regularly for both work and play. It was this passion for travel and her skill-set both behind and in front of the camera, that led her to launch The Wave Provocateur, the surf and travel site that she runs with her partner, Mitch.

Whether you meet her in the waves or on the catwalk, Bree is relatable, down-to-earth and always looking for new ways to bring her passions to life.”

Enticing and memorable with a bright future. That’s what we see.

Others see Bree with appreciation as well.

The fashion industry giant elle.com loved having a piece of her. “The Australian model has also modeled for Ralph Lauren, Nordstrom, ASOS, and Forever 21, and also runs a travel blog, Wave Provocateur. At 36-29-43, she fills a gap in the industry for “in-between” models not totally “plus” nor “straight-size,” though she thinks labels are an outdated tradition.”

Thanks for the update.

Another entertaining industry site thearcadiaonline.com probes even more, “Bree cites ASOS, the online fashion behemoth, as one of her first big jobs, and the best training ground for those taking their first steps into the world of modelling. Being the only ASOS Curve model at that time, she picked up tips and tricks from the other girls in the game.”

The tips she picked up are clearly paying off.

Time to travel to the comfortable village that helped shape Bree.

They did a great job, wouldn’t you agree?

Queensland is the second-largest and second-most-populous state in the Commonwealth of Australia.

Situated in the north-east of the country, it is bordered by the Northern Territory, South Australia and New South Wales to the west, south-west and south respectively.

Queensland has a population of 4,750,500, concentrated along the coast and particularly in the state’s South East.

The capital and largest city in the state is Brisbane, Australia’s third largest city. Often referred to as the “Sunshine State”, Queensland is home to 10 of Australia’s 30 largest cities and is the nation’s third largest economy.

Tourism in the state, fueled largely by its warm tropical climate, is a major industry.

Tourism is Queensland’s leading tertiary industry with millions of interstate and overseas visitors flocking to the Sunshine State each year. The industry generates $4.0 billion annually.

The main tourist destinations of Queensland include, Brisbane, Cairns, Port Douglas and the Daintree Rainforest, Gold Coast, the Great Barrier Reef, Hervey Bay and nearby Fraser Island, Townsville, Magnetic Island, North Stradbroke Island and South Stradbroke Island, Sunshine Coast, Hamilton Island, Daydream Island and the Whitsundays known for Airlie Beach and Whitehaven Beach.

The global travel experts Lonely Planet have seen and lived to talk about it. “Let it all hang out in Queensland: Australia‘s holiday haven offers beaches, reefs, jungles, up tempo locals and a laid-back tropical pace of life.

Queensland’s most famous ‘landscape’ is actually underwater: the astonishing 2000km-long Great Barrier Reef. Also offshore are hundreds of islands, harboring giant dunes and surreal forests growing in the sand.

Back on the mainland, bewitching national parks protect lush rainforests, sparkling lakes and wildlife that ranges from cute and cuddly (koalas) to downright fearsome (crocs). Skyscrapers define the landscape in Surfers Paradise and Brisbane: everywhere else you’ll find laid-back beach towns and sugar-cane fields rattling under the Queensland sun.”

Blessed by a cool caffeine scene, rambling farmer’s markets and fabulous riverside restaurants, Brisbane has reinvented itself as a foodie destination.

Sounds wonderful. No wonder Bree is a fun, down to earth beautiful girl.

Controversy or not, Bree loves to keep the conversation going.
