The latest celebrity to join the fashion world with her new line of clothing is someone who I have always been fond of and she has always owned her curves and has done it gracefully. You might even call her a “Queen” at flaunting what she’s got and doing it proudly. This powerhouse celebrity knows how to dress; it’s none other than Queen Latifah and her line called the Queen Collection!
Queen Latifah has been quoted saying plus size “is a word we need to bury at this point.” Her new line just released in August includes: sweaters, jeans, T-shirts, leggings, handbags and clip-in hair extensions. Queen Latifah wants her line to not only be considered a “plus-size” line, she wants her line to include all sizes, because that is what her collection is all about.
Latifah joined with the Home Shopping Network, because she wanted to work with a company that understood and respected that “we all want to wear beautiful, fly clothes no matter what size you are.”
Queen Latifah says she is just starting her own line because she didn’t feel the fashion world respected women of her size. Latifah says, “I felt like larger girls were not respected, even though we are huge consumers. I felt the marketplace didn’t respect us in the way it should. I was not going to step out with a clothing line that didn’t respect a fuller-figured woman or a curvaceous woman, and really all women.“
Queen Latifah’s line offers lifestyle wear at affordable prices. Items under her apparel section on the HSN website range in price from $49.90 up to $269.90 for her metallic belted zip leather jacket. The Suede Studded Handbag with Fringe Detail is $249.90 and her other satchels are $299.90. Her charmeuse scarf goes for $29.90.
It’s great to see a talented woman promoting her curves for the world to see!
