Style Stealer (Plus!): Salma Hayek In Black And Beige

Salma Hayek has been kiiiiiilllllin’ it, fashionably speaking, in all of her recent appearances to promote that movie that rhymes with “Thrown Ups 2.” I really loved the simplicity of this outfit she wore to Katie Couric’s studio: an hourglass-shaped black dress, sky-high beige heels, and gold bangles (not to mention those big, bouncy curls!). It’s a…

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

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.

“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.

Must Haves: 10 Cute & Casual Plus-Size Dresses

I have no idea why, but I’ve noticed that “casual” plus-size dresses are often, well, not that casual.

Or, like, mini golfing? To…
