Gianluca Russo is a fashion and culture writer who recently moved from New York to Arizona. He currently works as a fashion reporter for Teen Vogue and runs a monthly column at NYLON titled PLUS US that explores the many ways the plus-size community is discriminated against in our society today. Gianluca’s work has also been published in GQ, Glamour, NYLON, InStyle, Fashionista, Refinery29, and more. His features discussing topics like size inclusivity and body positivity have sparked many conversations within the plus-size community, and his coverage of New York Fashion Week has received attention on a national level by outlets like CBS This Morning.
In July, Gianluca and his team launched The Power of Plus digital community that has quickly grown to nearly 10,000 followers and counting, providing free virtual panels, monthly body positive book club, size-inclusive brand spotlights, and more. His debut book, THE POWER OF PLUS, will be out in 2022 from Chicago Review Press.
