Comedic actress Melissa McCarthy won our hearts in “Bridesmaids”, so we loved it when she earned a well deserving Emmy award for her CBS hit “Mike & Molly.” But what really got our interest was when she made her OWN red carpet dress with the help of dressmaker Daniella Pearl. McCarthy told the Hollywood Reporter she took matters into her own hands after none of the “9 million dresses with taffeta or shiny bows” she was presented with suited her style.
Melissa grew up dreaming about becoming a fashion designer so creating her lovely dark purple Emmy gown was a dream come true. And then she knew that she was on to something. “Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible,” McCarthy told the paper. “It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.” Now her fantasy is becoming a reality: McCarthy is launching an entire clothing line for plus-size women!
We are so excited for this collection! And we absolutely love it when stars create things that people are actually looking for! We don’t need more fragrance’s or jewelry lines. But, we do need a clothing line that’s fashionable and goes above a size 14 is definitely something the market could use!
