Whitley Nabintu Marshall: Redefining Beauty Standards in the Fashion Industry

Championing Inclusion, Resilience, and Authenticity as International Mrs USA and Visionary CEO of Artlovelifestyle Magazine


From Adversity to the Runway

When you hear the name Whitley Nabintu Marshall, you think of resilience. Surviving multiple near-death experiences, facing food insecurity, and even enduring a period of homelessness—all before turning 21, Whitley’s story is one of strength and perseverance. However, she didn’t stop at overcoming her personal battles; she turned her passion into a purpose, leading the charge to revolutionize the fashion industry.

Expanding Beauty Norms

As the first openly pansexual International Mrs USA, Whitley is more than just a titleholder. She is a symbol of change. Her role as the CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Artlovelifestyle Magazine showcases her commitment to expanding beauty standards. Her mission is clear: elevate underrepresented voices, both in print and on the runway. By emphasizing the markers of True Beauty—compassion, resilience, diversity, and authenticity—Whitley champions inclusion at every level of the industry.

Not Just a Model, but a Mentor

Whitley isn’t content being in front of the camera alone; she’s also a dedicated coach. With her upcoming guided journal and Compassionate Leadership training under her Mind•Body•Compassion Coaching initiative, she aims to empower others to navigate life’s challenges with grace and self-assurance.

Accolades and Recognitions

It’s no surprise that Whitley’s groundbreaking efforts have garnered attention. Recently, she was highlighted in the New York Weekly as one of the “Top 10 Women Leaders to Look Out For in 2023”. Further solidifying her position as a force to be reckoned with, the Entrepreneurs Herald and the NYC Journal also recognized her in their lists of inspiring women leaders.

Beyond titles, Whitley has been a two-time recipient of the Director’s Leadership Award and was a nominee for the “Mrs of the Year” at the Beauty it’s Everywhere Awards during NYFW in February. She was also named an official nominee for the Congeniality Award at the Global Beauty Awards this past April Seattle, and is a 2x Congeniality Award winner, voted on by her sister- queens when she competed for the Mrs. Maine America title in 2019 and 2021.

Challenging Beauty Norms with a Grand Showcase

In a highly anticipated collaboration with Beauty It’s Everywhere, Whitley is set to produce Artlovelifestyle Magazine’s first True Beauty Fashion Show & Expo on September 8th at the iconic New Yorker Hotel. This event promises to be a blend of fashion and performance, with live shows from her Rhythm Rebels Dance Collective, challenging conventional beauty norms.

Doors to the True Beauty Expo will open at 6 pm, with the fashion show commencing at 8 pm.
