Unless you’ve been living under a rock (read: not living), then you’ve probably heard the name Paloma Elsesser. If not, then her bronze, baby-smooth face will no doubt help jog your memory. For the uninitiated, Elsesser has built an impressive career as a size-inclusive model and influencer, with an equally impressive portfolio. She’s worked with Vogue, cool-kid label Eckhaus Latta, and Proenza Schouler to name a few. And now, she’s the face of a new project: a Jason Wu x ELOQUII holiday collaboration.

Jason Wu, a celeb-favorited designer, teamed up with Eloquii’s creative director Jodi Arnold to create the line. Launching in November, the line will include an assortment of “occasion” dresses and separates, sized 14-28, all of which are made for the holiday season ahead. “Jason’s designs for Eloquii celebrate the female form in an exquisite, powerful way,” Elsesser told the Cut. On teaming up with the 26-year-old model, Wu said, “I love how unapologetic and outspoken she is when it comes to fashion, so working with her to front this collection campaign was a no-brainer.”
