Queen Latifah is already a successful actress, singer and a CoverGirl, and now the multi-talented star is adding designer to her resumé with a new clothing line for HSN. The Queen Collection, launching this August, includes clothing and accessories designed for every woman in sizes 2-24. “I’m so excited about it,” Latifah tells PEOPLE. “This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve been offered a lot of deals for clothing lines and actually started one that didn’t quite get off the ground but this is like a full circle moment for me.” Latifah, née Dana Owens, explains, “This is a young 14-year-old, 17-year-old and 22-year-old Dana trying to go shopping and actually finding the things she wants to wear or going on HSN and ordering the clothes she likes because they’re there and they are in her size. This has been a bit of a journey and it’s a really exciting venture.” She singles out the chic leather handbags she created as a favorite from the collection — for personal reasons. “I have a bag fetish,” she confesses. “I’ll have on sweatpants and a $3,000 purse. I don’t deny myself, bags are the one thing I’ll allow myself to splurge on.” And she’s banking on fans of the collection to feel the same about her designs. “I think the bag line is going to be really good. It’s versatile so it’s not going to look like the same bag from one collection to the next. There’s something for everyone.” Especially those who want to look like a queen. “I definitely want to be able to rock my bag. I figured, if I can rock it, why shouldn’t other people be able to?” The Queen Collection, including outerwear, will be available on HSN and HSN.com beginning Aug. 27. –Samantha McIntyre

I can’t wait to find ‘nice’, ‘normal’ clothes that will fit and look great! I just hope they are affordable for ‘normal’ everyday people.

Obesity is not attractive. That’s not normal, that’s fat. No wonder why America is full of fat people. It’s people thinking that they’re normal when in fact, they are fat. Please lose some weight before you keep on embarrasing yourself.

bty , If that were true, noone would be fat or they would now be naked. Good thing you are thin, you certainly can’t type – or is that an attempt to spell :)~~~
