Clémentine Desseaux is a gorgeous, full-figured, 27-year-old model, and she stars in Christian Louboutin's latest lipstick ad. This awesome milestone marks the first appearance of a plus-size model in a Louboutin campaign since it was founded more than 20 years ago, reports Cosmopolitan.
In the video, Clémentine wears Louboutin's Rouge Matt Velvet Lipstick, which costs a jaw-dropping $90 a tube and looks like a stiletto heel.

"Being curvy and freckly was never easy back when I was in France," the French model told the Daily Mail. Clémentine moved to New York City three years ago, after she struggled to find gigs in Paris as a plus-size model. "Now beauty is changing and brands are putting girls that are different in the spotlight.

They are opening up to all the beauty that is in the world and not only the European, blond, skinny, white woman type."

Clémentine, who is between a size 12 and 14, also gives props to Louboutin in the Daily Mail for paving the way for other high-end fashion brands to follow in their footsteps and represent different types of beauty.

No doubt about it: Clém is our #WCW this week!
