Glamour[edit]

Miller created a firestorm of reactions when her picture appeared in the September 2009 issue of Glamour without any airbrushing. One roll of fat can be seen in the picture, and her picture caused a storm of letters and responses, causing Glamour to rethink their use of only skinny models.[3] Glamour claimed that it would start to feature more plus-size images starting with their November 2009 issue.[4]

Since the Glamour picture, Miller has appeared in a number of campaigns for plus size retailers. She has walked in runway shows for One Stop Plus' New York fashion week show, the Elena Miro runway shows in Milan and the Lane Bryant runway show in Las Vegas. She has been in commercials for Lane Bryant and for Elena Miro.
