Comedy actress Melissa McCarthy talks to Us Magazine about the clothing line that she started designing a while ago. McCarthy first wore an item of her collection at the Emmy Awards this year.
Finding a sexy and comfortable dress for plus-sized women has always been a challenge. Somehow, the clothing giant producers believe that women who have extra pounds already feel so bad about it that they don’t care about how sexy they could look in a dress. But women always love to feel attractive and this proves once more that there is no connection between the size you are and the amount of care that you put into your look.
For the Emmys ceremony, Melissa McCarthy has tried to find a perfect dress. And failed. So she decided to make her out outfit, one that would fit all her needs. At that point, however, she already started designing her clothing line. “I went to school for clothes and textiles, so I always thought I was going to do women’s clothing anyway”, she told Us Weekly at the Ma Mere/Art Pere Night to benefit Livestrong Thursday night in Los Angeles. She said that the purpose of her collection is to make people “feel good about themselves.” She admits that while creating the clothes she only thought about herself. “It’s just a lame way to get me clothes I want”, she joked.
McCarthy, 41, revealed a few weeks ago that she always had a problem with the way she looks before the birth of her daughters, 4-year-old Vivian and 1-year-old Georgette. “The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can’t control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it”, she told the Hollywood Reporter in an interview. She says that, if in her 20s she cared a lot about the opinion of other people regarding her appearance, now, in her 40s, she believes that there are other things defining her.
