Atlanta, GA – September 20, 2010 – Gemini Magazine ( announced today that it will be teaming with Sonsi (, the newly launched online social and shopping destination for the plus size community. The Atlanta-based curve-friendly publication and Sonsi will be working together to create a special makeover spread featuring one lucky reader, beginning with the Fall issue (due out this September).  The Sonsi sponsored makeover specials will run in Fall and Spring issues.

“Every woman needs to feel beautiful and refreshed,” says Gemini Magazine Publisher Sommer Johnson. “We wear so many hats from day to day, and it’s nice for someone to finally focus on us and say ‘Stop, take a break, and get pampered’. We are that someone.”

As part of the special makeover feature, the selected reader, to be dubbed the First Gemini Magazine Real Woman of Style, will be styled by Gemini’s hand-picked stylists for the spread featuring a new and improved look created by the Sonsi team specifically catered to their shape. Readers interested in being a part of the spread would submit their photos via Gemini Magazine website or could be nominated by their friends or family.
