Queen Latifah's New Clothing Line for Curvy Bodies

03/17/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

In a time when designer samples range in size from 0-2, Queen Latifah still manages to look fantastic on the red carpet. Sure, she has designers like Carmen Marc Valvo and Bradley Bayou whipping up custom creatins for her at the drop of the hat, but when it comes to day-wear, the actress is all about Curvation. After starting as a lingerie company for full-figured women, Curvation has branched out with a full line of ready to wear inspired by the Chicago star. “The line is all kinds of things to make a woman feel sexy,” says Latifah, whose stylist Susan Moses is also the creative director for the line. “We wanted to do what was trendy and on the edge.” And though she says she “was never a size six—not since I was 12,” Latifah knows the key to looking good is feeling good. “She has to be sexy and comfortable,” says Moses of Latifah’s “approachable glam” style. Look for that in Curvation’s spring line, which features lots of silks and jerseys that “silhouette the body instead of trying to hide women’s’ curves,” explains Moses. Latifah’s take? “I’d walk down the red carpet in that.” (And she has, while rolling out the red carpet itself for the People’s Choice Awards.) Get your own at shopcurvation.com.

Queen Latifah looks beautiful. Kudos on her new business venture.

“custom creatins for her at the drop of the hat,”

I love the outfit she’s wearing, the coral (salmon?) coloured top looks really sharp and sophisticated against the black.

OK, I’ve had some Curvations items. Nice, but not worth the price I just seen on the site for these clothing items they are going to be charging. I mean $54 for a Ring Sleeve Tee? $124.99 for Cargo jeans? Something tells me that my local Walmart isn’t going to carry this part of the Curvations line. And I’m not paying this kind of money for it.

I love Queen Latifah!

I commend Queen Latifah for coming out with a clothing line for plus size women. Although, the prices are somewhat steep, maybe they will have some of the line in Wal-Mart where Curvation bras are sold.

I like Queen Latifah and I am happy that she is going to start a clothing line for the curveous bodies. Since I am not a size 0 and I proably never will be size 0. I would definetly purchase her line of clothing, hopefully I can afford!!

I think she’s awesome. She’s one of my fav stars. She don’t care if she’s a plus star. I loved her in chicago.

that’s a great idea but it’s sad that it gets no publicity. if it was nicole richie making a line of womenswear, then it would be on every news channel.
