The industry loves her. Her bio is found at who are happy to share. “Liris grew up in Baltimore and made her own modeling career after deciding the best way to represent herself was by herself. She tapped into the urban market and found herself featured in magazines such as Essence, Honey, XXL, The Source, and Black Elegance.

Soon, other magazines caught on, and she was sought out by Glamour, Seventeen, YM, and Girl. She appeared in a number of top music videos for artists such as Jay-Z, Puff Daddy, Jennifer Lopez, and Luscious Jackson. She has since added television and film to her resume, with appearances on MTV Jams, BET’s 106 & Park, and films such as Spike Lee’s Inside Man and John Singleton’s Baby Boy.”

As far as resumes go, that is magnificent.

Unique and stunning, her story in some places is similar to other popular models.

She enjoyed taking pictures and walking the runway since she was a little girl. Growing up, her idols were Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell and she loved imitating them.

Liris learned at a very young age from her parents that she would be a great person and that going through trials makes you stronger once you conquer them.

Great foundation. Fantastic parents.

The global news and entertainment source speaks to her early history. “In her junior year of high school, she heard about a casting call in her area for a convention called Model Search America and immediately signed up.

Liris, who grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, is proving her doubters wrong and now she’s taking the UK by storm after landing a new lingerie campaign.”

And grown up she is with a cooperative resume that includes working with Lane Bryant, Ashley Stewart, Target, QristylFrazier, Monif C., Loop 18, Vogue, Essence and other fashion luminaries.

Speaking of that foundation, it takes a helpful village to raise and enhance a child who eventually evolves into a very successful adult. Let’s meet her village.

Let’s travel to Baltimore.

Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland.

The city has more public monuments per capita than any other city in the country and is home to some of the earliest National Register historic districts in the nation, including Fell’s Point (1969), Federal Hill (1970) and Mount Vernon Place (1971). More than 65,000 properties, or roughly one in three buildings in the city, are listed on the National Register, more than any other city in the nation.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.

With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has been dubbed “a city of neighborhoods”. Famous residents have included the writers Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Hamilton, Frederick Douglass, and H.L. Mencken; jazz musician James “Eubie” Blake; singer Billie Holiday; actor and filmmaker John Waters; and baseball player Babe Ruth. In the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key wrote The Star-Spangled Banner, later the American national anthem, in the city.

Her prominent residents are ecstatic about her. At they smile, “There’s a buzz about Baltimore that makes people who visit fall in love with it vibe. With the world-famous Inner Harbor; renowned museums and attractions; award-winning restaurants; a locally loved music scene, and hip and historic neighborhood, get ready to explore a truly authentic American city.”

The icing on the satisfied visitor’s experience that has to be shared sails into the harbor from the elite travel source, Lonely Planet who admire, “in recent years Baltimore has begun to grow into a swan – or, more accurately, gotten better at showing the world the swan that was always there, in the form of world-class museums, trendy shops, ethnic restaurants, boutique hotels, culture and sports.”

Historical Baltimore is certainly an intriguing city to visit.

Liris is an even more intriguing shapely model who is captivating the fashion industry establishment and younger girls of all beautiful shapes who are considering being a model.

In her interview with when asked about the advice that she would give to those aspiring to fashion greatness, she replied, “I am an entrepreneur, so even though I model I am always thinking of other ways to build my brand. And I would tell others to think outside of the box as well. You may not model, but you can be a fashion blogger, a stylist, a makeup artist, photographer, and a plus size advocate. It is an open arena, you just have to explore.”

There you have it.

Like an enthralling Netflix documentary, a look into the life of Liris Crosse warmly inspires, generates fond memories and makes you long to watch more.

Hers is a job to forever envy.
