Style Stealer (Plus): Melissa McCarthy’s Rockin’ Outfit

Melissa McCarthy

I usually have to use non-plus-size actresses as inspiration for Style Stealer (Plus!) posts because there are so few plus-size celebrity women, and even fewer ever pop up in our photo feeds. Melissa McCarthy always looks gorgeous all dolled up at red carpet events, but I was extra excited to see her dressed down a bit in this badass outfit for a recent appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” I have a feeling this look — retro band t-shirt, blazer, printed leggings, statement necklace — is the “real” Melissa, because she’s totally glowing in that “I freakin’ love my outfit today” way.

Style Stealer (Plus!): Sandra Bullock’s Sexy Leather Skirt

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock has reappeared on the red carpet recently to promote her new movie “The Heat,” and is it just me or does she look more beautiful than ever? Seriously, the girl is glowing. I’m also really digging her new look for this round of publicity: lots of black, slightly slouchy silhouettes, with an edgy vibe — in this case, that fierce leather pencil skirt. I found all the pieces to create a plus-size version of this fabulous outfit. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 9 Pretty Plus-Size Bikinis

Earlier this year, blogger Gabi Fresh made waves when she collaborated with Swimsuits for All to launch the Fatkini. Inspired by the Harmony Korine movie “Spring Breakers,” Fresh’s collection is full of bold, bright color and fun styles. “I wanted to give [plus-size women] cuter things,” Fresh explained in an interview with The Daily Beast. “All I want for us is to have the same ability to go shopping like everyone else and have those options available.”

We loved her designs, and wanted to find a bunch more cool plus-size bikinis, but it proved a more difficult undertaking than we thought. Even go-to plus-size retailers seem to be shilling belly-covering tankinis in place of straight up bikinis. To me, the relative dearth of plus-size bikini options speaks to a larger notion — seemingly even prevalent in the plus sizde marketplace — that bigger women should cover up their bellies and be ashamed of the way their stomachs look. But plus-size women should have an equal opportunity to show off their curves in bikinis that fit and flatter them, too.

Thankfully, more and more plus-size clothiers are catching on. We found nine totally awesome plus-size bikinis that’ll look great on every beach.

What better way to celebrate the beginning of Full Figured Fashion Week (and cleanse your palette after Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant ridiculousness) than with a documentary about plus-size beauty queens? “There She Is” stars two friends, Allison and Jenny, who love everything about beauty pageants: the makeup, the hair, the costumes, the glitter.

But unlike the women who compete in Miss USA and Miss America pageants, Allison and Jenny are both a size 22. Keep reading »

Style 911: Help Me Find The Perfect Plus-Size Maxi Dress!

“I would love some fashion advice. I’m on the smaller end of plus sized (14-16) and I want to get my first maxi dress. Although I am of average height I have always steered away from long dresses because I have felt like they made me look, for lack of better terms, stumpy and dumpy. I’m willing to take a style leap of faith though! My issue is I have no idea what type of maxi dress to look for. I need one that accommodates a combination of short legs, long torso, and large bust. Ideally it could transition from fairly casual office to going out after work. Any tips?” — Mad for Maxis

Dear Mad for Maxis,

It sounds like you and I have a really similar body shape, and I, too, have shied away from maxi dresses because my junior high PE teacher used to call me Stumpy and I’ve had no desire to resurrect that nickname in my adult life. But the fact is I have seen maxi dresses look truly fabulous (and flattering!) on women of all shapes and sizes, so there’s no reason for us to sit on the sidelines anymore. Let’s make this the summer of maxis! Keep reading »

Style Stealer (Plus!): Lauren Conrad’s Lovely Leather Look

I’m really excited to debut a new feature today called Style Stealer (Plus!).

We’re kicking things off with Lauren Conrad’s foxy leather pants and breezy blouse, but if you come across a celeb look you’d like to recreate in your size, shoot me an email at winona@thefrisky.com and I’ll see what I can do!
