What now Iris Alonso?
Less than a week after denying plus-size model search winner and spoofer Nancy Upton the grand prize, American Apparel has had a change of heart!
Nancy told Fox News:
"[American Apparel] extended an offer to tour the factory and sit with some of the creative directors to discuss what happened with the contest and have a dialogue about advertising to a different demographic."
But just because she's coming out to El Lay doesn't mean she'll be posing for one of their ads.
"I would not appear in an ad campaign. I have opinions about the company that won’t be changed by my visit."
We can't wait to read all about her meeting!

American Apparel's looking for plus-size models or in their case "Next Big Thing".
Last week the clothing company launched their online model search, which is exactly like their butt model search: girls submit their photos and then they're judged on a scale of "Not Quite" to "XLent".
The casting call site reads:
Calling curvy ladies everywhere! Our best-selling Disco Pant (and around 10 other sexy styles) are now available in size XL, for those of us who need a little extra wiggle room where it counts. We're looking for fresh faces (and curvaceous bods) to fill these babies out. If you think you've got what it takes to be the next XLent model, send us photos of you and your junk to back it up.
Just send us two recent photographs of yourself, one that clearly shows your face and one of your body. We'll select a winner to be flown out to our Los Angeles headquarters to star in your own bootylicious photoshoot. Runners up will win an enviable assortment of our favorite new styles in XL!
Show us what you're workin' with!
So far AA's received 323 submissions and we gotta say the competition's pretty fierce!
