Denise Mercedes and her friend really know how to reel in fashionista viewers of all types. The Dominican model is a very active TikTok user who never misses the latest fashion challenge. Her latest viral TikTok video was one she did with her friend, Maria Castellanos.
Denise has a plus-size body, and most people might assume that she’d rock a different type of style to her leaner friend. But Denise proves that it doesn’t always have to be that way. #StyleNotSize was the tag that she uses when she models next to her friend, something that she’s started since a long time ago.
This isn’t her first time doing this, and every time, the both of them just blew our minds. You really don’t need the ‘perfect shape’ to rock those styles – the most important thing is that confidence!
Denise and Maria’s duo is the pioneer of the tag #StyleNotSize as she regularly shares videos and posts of her hanging wearing the same thing as her plus-size friend. Despite their different skin color and body shape, the two always look confident in what they wear, inspiring millions of people by now.
Denise Mercedes is a trendsetter icon to plus-size and just anyone who wants to find fashion inspiration. Her Instagram now has more than 1 million followers, where she regularly shares her latest looks. She is also currently a brand ambassador of Fabletics, a sports fashion brand founded by Katie Hudson.
Meanwhile, her friend Maria Castellanos is a vlogger with an equally amazing fashion sense. She is more active on TikTok, where she’s amassed more than 285k followers. And when the New Yorker was not sharing about fashion, she’s an aspiring dancer!
