In our skinny-mini-obsessed society, it has become relatively rare to see a plus-sized celebrity, let alone a plus-sized celebrity posing nude on the cover of a fashion magazine—like Beth Ditto did on the debut issue of LOVE. The lead singer of Gossip is bigger and is not ashamed of it, and in a short time has become an inspiration to larger girls. Now, she’s doing even more—she has designed a line for Evans, a UK brand that sells plus size clothing, ranging from sizes 14 to 32. Rather than play it safe, she has, in true Ditto fashion, chosen bright colors and loud patterns, once again embracing the idea that having a fuller figure shouldn’t mean limited options.
Beth Ditto’s designs will be available on Evans.co.uk starting tomorrow, July 9th.
