Plus-size women are seeing themselves represented in fashion by designers and retailers in ways unseen before.
"Every story line can't be about a girl trying to change her body so that her life can start."
According to Khloe Kardashian’s Good American co-founder Emma Grede, the denim company’s foray into activewear is going to be game-changer. “The fashion industry is notorious for catering to a specific shape and size,” Grede tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
Leslie Jones said she treated the Christian Siriano fashion show like a baseball game because she was so excited about the clothes and plus-size models.
Huffine has just unveiled her latest project: a size-inclusive capsule collection for lingerie and swimwear line Fortnight, called CH x Fortnight.
She wants women to understand that they come in all shapes and sizes and colors, and there’s no set standard for what’s perfect.
Plus-size model Candice Huffine just landed the cover of Vogue, and while her photo is gorgeous and ethereal, the moment is a missed opportunity for fuller-figured women. On Monday, Huffine posted a photo of her upcoming Vogue Mexico cover. In the image, the brunette beauty is completely naked, clutching a strategically placed bouquet of flowers.
Twenty years ago, supermodels starred in music videos. Joe Jonas just released a brand new video, the first from his new band, DNCE. In the video, the four-piece LA-based band, plays the dance-y jam on the beach while The Fat Jewish rubs frosting all over his bare body before taking on a bevy of models in an epic food fight full of more yellow cake and white frosting than most of these girls have collectively seen in a lifetime. Jonas’s model girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, is credited as the first director (four dudes come after her on the ticker running across the bottom of the screen at the video’s start).
Photo: The sun was beginning to set over Manhattan on Tuesday night when French designer Sophie Theallet’s rooftop show began. The chirpy audience was able to bask in the best collection that the designer has put forth in some time. While we know that Africa has always been an inspiration in Theallet’s collections, this season she worked with Beyoncé’s former stylist, Jenke Ahmed Tailly, who encouraged her to really go for it. “He said, ‘Sophie, open up and do whatever you feel, because I believe in you. Cocktail dresses with tiered layers of leather and raffia, see-through waffle skirts, and lots of revealing sheer looks that somehow did not appear gaudy or ostentatious given how much skin was on display. By the time that Candice Huffine strutted onto the runway — in a corset and sheer dress no less — everyone (including Carine Roitfeld, who put Huffine on the map by styling her for the Pirelli calendar last year) was beaming. Theallet became friendly with model when she was designing a collection for Lane Bryant, and also made her the face of her first (and most recent) campaign. “She’s so beautiful and sweet,” Theallet told Yahoo Style.
Lane Bryant launches new #PlusIsEqual campaign. (Photo: Lane Bryant) You might have noticed the mysterious black and white ad in your September issue of Vogue. The silhouettes of six curvy models spread across two pages, no splashy brand name anywhere to be found, just the words “#PlusIsEqual, It’s time for change.” Today, we found out that ad is part of Lane Bryant’s fall campaign, one that aims to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes.
