Who is Denise Bidot?
This American model was born in Miami, Florida, United States, and raised there together with her siblings. Denise Bidot parents are of different nationalities: she was born into the family of a Kuwaiti father and a Puerto-Rican mother.
Her mom, Daphne, used to win beauty pageants and had the ambition to become a successful model. However, she did not manage to make it big in the industry because she was plus-size.
Denise started out as an actress when she was only 12 years old. At the age of 18, she decided to move to California to pursue acting.
In the industry, she came across the same problems her mother struggled with, and was often told to lose weight if she want to become a successful actress. However, she decided not to compromise her beliefs only for the sake of getting a role.
Although she felt comfortable in her own body and refused to change for jobs, there was not much success in the acting field for her. Eventually, she gave up on her dream and decided to become a makeup artist.
While working as a makeup artist, the young woman was noticed by a professional photographer. She was advised to pursue a modelling career, and she was surprised at first, but eventually decided it would be the right path for her.
Being embraced for her individuality was highly inspiring for her, as she always felt like people should not be put in categories and look the same. In the past, she thought modelling was all about nice clothes and travelling, so it was surprising for her to discover that it is such a large movement.
2014 was the year when she became the first plus-size model who walked the runway for two straight-size brands at New York Fashion Week. She has collaborated with multiple brands since then, some of which being Savage X Fenty, Forever21, Old Navy, Nordstrom, Target, Macy’s, Lane Bryant, and Levi’s.
Although her acting career was put on a backburner following her modelling success, she has played roles in a few television shows, including “Curvy Girls”, “Habla Women” and “Mama vs Mama”.
Additionally, she was featured in the documentary “Straight/Curve”, which came out in 2016. She also made an appearance on “The Tyra Banks Show” and “The Real”.
Denise launched a self-love related campaign called “There Is No Wrong Way to Be a Woman” in 2016. She is a huge advocate for diversity and celebrating people in the modeling business the way they are without trying to make everyone meet the same standards.
She considers the industry to have changed since when she first started working as a model. According to her, back then plus-size models did not have as many opportunities as they do now, and the progress makes her feel proud.
One of the factors that, in her opinion, contribute to increasing diversity is social media because models have a voice now and can speak their mind, which attracts brands. She hopes that one day there will be even more diversity in the industry, and people from all around the world will be represented and celebrated.
On the official website of “There Is No Wrong Way to Be a Woman” ,Bidot has featured a photoshoot with multiple women, labelled “Class of ’16”. She directed this photoshoot on her own and was very proud of it.
Apart from this, she was also the main judge at a reality TV beauty pageant “Nuestra Belleza Latina” in 2018.
