Kelly Osbourne lost a shit ton of weight after appearing on Dancing with the Stars, and good for her. Although it seems her whole identity now revolves around how not fat she is and how fat she used to be – yuck! – she wants everyone to know that she still feels like a “former fat person” (she actually said this) and is, accordingly, launching a plus-sized fashion range for women.
Here’s what Kelly told reporters about her new endeavour (via DS):
“I had one of the most exciting meetings of my life this week – it pretty much green-lit my clothing line. When I sat down in this meeting and they said, ‘Yes, you have creative control and of course you can do plus size’. I was like, ‘It’s happening!’”
“It still has to be very me – quirky. But that’s me, so I have to also have something slightly normal.”
“I’ve always been really into fashion. It’s just that my fashion choices at an early age were really odd and they still are. I have grown to understand, as much as I don’t like it, that the fashion world doesn’t really want to listen to what a little chubby girl has to say.”
I get what she’s saying, and it’s also not my place to quantify anyone’s experience of “fat” – though I certainly don’t think she was ever actually fat. Chubby? Sure, whatever floats your boat, but far from obese (though she did lose 70lbs so, take that as you will). Either way, she looks great and it’s glad to see she’s feeling great, too.
Plus (lol, no pun intended), bigger girls need more clothing options that don’t look like they’re made for 80-year-old wooden barrels. The muu-muus and MC Hammer-inspired, elastic-waisted patterned pants are horrendous – have you looked at a Lane Bryant? SMH.
What do we think? Is Kelly Osbourne’s plus-sized fashion line going to be amazing or absolutely awful?
