Back in 2017, the star modeled in lingerie as a part Lane Bryant’s “ImNoAngel” campaign. In September of that year, during an interview with Cosmopolitan, Brooks discussed what fashion means to her, the way it affected her body image, and finally how she learned to be fearless about showing herself in every way. She explained,
It is still really hard to get people to design for me. It’s frustrating because you feel like you’re the (minority). You feel this pull of what it means to be “sample size” and you’re not that and (most designers) don’t have anything (that fits).
Danielle also spoke on the importance of movements like the “ImNoAngel” campaign, which put curvy women on billboards and commercials, are so important.
We are here and we deserve to be designed for. We deserve to spend our money on expensive stuff (if we want).
She then went on to speak about how seeing herself modeling lingerie on a billboard made her feel.
I love it. I’m sure the way in which the Victoria’s Secret models feel about being a part of that (franchise)— that’s how I feel! I feel beautiful when I watch the commercials or see myself on a bus. But it’s not only because it is me on a bus, it’s also what we represent — telling the world to get out of these social norms of what it means to be beautiful.
