Hi Curvinistas! I have a very special treat for you this Friday! In the world of fashion there are several events we stylists look forward to. This Sunday is filled with star-gazing and designer duds at the 65th Emmy Awards. While there are several nominees, the variable question of “Who Are You Wearing?” is almost as popular as the phrase “And the Winner Is…”
Over the years, designers have invested as much creation in their red-carpet designs as they do for their seasonal runway collections. Since this is my first time doing a “designer highlight,” I thought it was befitting to begin with someone who countlessly graces the red-carpet for awards shows, movie premieres, and even celebrity weddings!
Tadashi Shoji, Japanese-born American fashion designer known for his evening and bridal wear, has a huge celebrity following—not to mention he is a huge supporter of curvy and plus-size women. Shoji’s designs are universally appealing on all body types, but his signature style is very opulent, with lace, tulle, chiffon, and intricate draping. Below is a Curvy Girl Gallery of all my favorite starlets who have donned Tadashi Shoji’s beautiful and classic garments and a Q&A with the amazing designer.
See you next Friday my Curvinistas! Or in a fitting room near YOU!
P.S. My Curvy Footnote: This week Rent the Runway expanded their plus-size repertoire for the glamorous Curivinista! Gone are the days of not knowing what to wear for black tie galas, weddings, date nights, or girls’ night out! There are over 40 style options from major red-carpet designers exclusively for the site. Bravo and welcome RTR Plus to the full-figure movement!
