She's faced some rather unpleasant comments on her shapely figure, but Amelle Berrabah appears to have grown to love her body.
Judging on her choice of outfit she wore at the Graduate Fashion Week Gala Show, held at Earl's Court, she has no qualms about showing off her curves.
Amelle, 26, made an appearance at the show wearing a snug-fitting LBD with a cutout sheer panel on the skirt which showed off her thighs - covering up with an unusual cropped orange zip-up jacket with puffed up short sleeves.

The dress could be considered to be an unusual choice for the pop singer, because of the cruel jibes about her weight she has faced from some observers.
When she first joined the Sugababes in 2005 Amelle quickly attained a slim physique, but, since her split with ex-boyfriend Freddie Fuller she has regained her weight leading to criticism from some parties.
Last year the 26-year-old said she looked like an 'anorexic rat' as she was so dangerously underweight that her doctor prescribed her a diet of highly calorific food every two to three hours.
She was forced to go on a high-calorie diet after becoming dangerously underweight.
Her weight plummeted to a size zero last year after a series of traumatic events including an attack on her former boyfriend and their subsequent split, plus the departure of fellow Sugababe Keisha Buchanan.
Writing on her Twitter micro-blogging page earlier this year she said: 'Dunno if anyone has read a magazine saying that I've had a boob job. No, I bl**dy haven't. One word - chicken fillets and some weight gain.'
Other guests at the student fashion show included Rachel Stevens who looked fantastic in a sequin-covered mini dress, covering her top half with a black shawl.
While Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts wore a slim-fitted, floor-length number covered with an intricate gold leaf design carrying a mini quilted Chanel bag.

Rebecca Thomson of Manchester Metropolitan University eventually took home the Gold Award prize for best student collection at the show.
