Mike & Molly Co-Star to Launch Plus Line

30 Sep

We have all been there (“we” meaning the plus size woman) in a store wanting to spend money on the latest trend or at least something that resembles fashionable only to find that the selection is (in the eloquent words of Mike & Molly co-star Melissa McCarthy) “either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.”

For some of us, the talent of being stylish is completely God-given, for others (raising hand here) not so much, but we can all agree that for years stylish plus size clothing options were far and few between.  Melissa McCarthy is seeking to change that for the fashion-handicapped.

McCarthy plans to launch her own plus size line with the help of couturier Daniella Pearl (who, shall we add was the helping hand behind her self designed Emmy dress).  Before you roll your eyes at yet another celebrity putting thread to fabric, McCarthy has a slight edge on the other celeb fashion designers. She has a background in design and wanted to actually become a designer, however, as luck would have it she ended up doing stand-up in New York.

There is no definite timeline as to when the line will launch, but we are sure it won’t be too long.  We wish the Emmy Award winning 41-year-old mother of two the best of luck in her endeavor. Let’s face it, it can’t possibly hurt for the curvy girl to have more choices.
