Toccara Jones Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Toccara Jones first made a name for herself as a plus-size competitor on the third season of America’s Next Top Model. Even though she was the seventh person eliminated that season, her bubbly personality, confidence in her body, and stunning looks won her millions of fans – and a successful plus-size modeling career. She’s currently repped by Wilhelmina Models and has done work for Target and Avon, and posed on the cover of King magazine.

In 2005 Toccara lost 32 pounds as a contestant on VH1’s Celebrity Boot Camp, knocking her weight down to 173 pounds. By the time she made her second appearance on the flab-to-fab reality show in 2008, she had gained back 14 pounds. But she powered through the rigorous boot camp workouts, and slimmed down to 166 pounds. Most recently, Toccara flaunted her svelte bod in the pages of Italian Vogue, making her the first black plus-sized model to grace the iconic mag’s pages.

Do you dig Toccara’s new slender bod, or was her curvier look more luscious?
