If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas then you know the strip is filled with scantily clad models wearing a variety of provocative outfits, so when model Anna O’Brien wanted to do a photoshoot in a bikini, no one should have batted an eye, right?
Want to see more of Anna? She’s got her own YouTube channel and recently posted about her wonderful experience with ModCloth. She even modeled one of their new rainbow bikinis from this season’s swimwear collection. Check it out below:
Wrong! The plus-size model and blogger, who is better known as Glitter and Lazers, was promptly asked to cover up or leave. The whole thing went down in the lobby of a hotel, which Anna had previously asked for permission to shoot in.
She was planning to take a few editorial photos for a new swimwear look book, so obviously needed a couple pictures of herself in various bathing suits. She emailed her hotel’s PR team to ask that it would be okay and explained her situation.
“I asked to shoot swimsuits with a professional photographer and included my media kit,” Anna said. “I received a reply stating that I was welcome to shoot anywhere in the hotel except the casino floor, provided I had no large equipment.”
