FASHION NEWS: QUEEN LATIFAH SET TO LAUNCH HER OWN CLOTHING LINE


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
One of our faaaaaaaavorite plus size celebrity's, Queen Latifah, will launch her very own clothing line  through HSN. The collection will be called none other than "Queen" and it will consist of everything from denim, leggings, and hanbags to hair clips. We've long awaited for a plus size celebrity to do a clothing line and we don't want to put any pressure on the queen, but, we are quite sure that many plus size women are hoping that her line delivers in every aspect, from style and cut, to functionality.

According to WWD, Latifah says,
“It is a word we need to bury at this point ... I wanted to make something size two and up,” she said. “The truth is, we all would like to wear the same clothes. We all want to wear beautiful, fly clothes no matter what size you are, and so for me it was important to match with a company that understood and respected that ideal.”

 “I felt like larger girls were not respected, even though we are huge consumers,” Queen Latifah said. “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.”

The Queen collection will be priced under $100 for apparel and $170-$300 for leather outerwear and handbags. The line will debut on August 27th.

We know she's going to have leggings and I'm quite sure there will be a number of black pieces, but, let's take a look at the Queen's personal style to see what else we could possibly expect from her line.

Funky Contoured Blazers

Tunics

Classic Pieces like a LBD or shirtdress

Edgy and trendy pieces like a jumpsuit

Oh and let's not forget about the Queens shoe game. The Queen loves gladiator sandals and sneakers. Maybe those styles will make an appearance in the Queen collection


Are you excited about Queen Latifah's HSN line?
