Queen Latifah in a Purple Gown at People’s Choice Awards

I just realised that we haven’t talked about Queen Latifah on our little site yet – and since she’s a little more than curvy (she’s reportedly a little over 200 lbs. at 5’10”), I think she deserves a post!

So, here she is looking very purple on the red carpet last night in an empire waist dress.

How do you like the gown on Queen Latifah’s full figure?

Star Jones in a White Bikini

Second bikini stop in the brand new 2009: 46 year-old Star Jones, in a two piece white bikini!

It’s pretty obvious that Star didn’t maintain her super thin post-surgery figure – and since she’s got a fuller, curvier body now, I would have chosen a more flattering, non-white, one-piece swimsuit.

Lots of pictures and lots of angles after the jump!

Oprah Is 200 Pounds at 5’6”

oprah-is-200-pounds-at-561 - Oprah Is 200 Pounds at 5'6''

Oprah recently opened the old and overly discussed subject again: her weight. Here’s what she had to say:

“I’m embarrassed … I can’t believe that after all these years, all the things I know how to do, I’m still talking about my weight. I look at my thinner self and think, ‘How did I let this happen again?’ ”

For starters, the fact that her thyroid was out-of-balance gave her “a fear of working out,” she says. “I was so frustrated I started eating whatever I wanted – and that’s never good.”

Having slimmed down to 160 in 2006, she admits, “Yes, you’re adding correctly. That means the dreaded 2-0-0…”

Choosing a gown for the Barack Obama inauguration coming up in January, however, made Winfrey realize her self-image was no longer jibed with the person standing on the scales – though the real low point occurred last April.

“I felt like a fat cow,” Winfrey writes of the occasion when she sought to skip out on a Las Vegas show taping with Cher and Tina Turner. “I wanted to disappear.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Winfrey’s weight and height rank her as obese, with a body mass index of 31.8 – putting her at “at higher risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol,” says the CDC.

Winfrey intends to address the issue on The Oprah Winfrey Show, which will kick off “Best Life Week” Jan. 5.

Jordin Sparks: Tips for Plus-Size Girls

jordin-sparks-in-a-yellow-dress-on-the-red-carpet - Jordin Sparks: Tips for Plus-Size Girls

A while back, Jordin (who is 5’11” and a US size 12, according to most sources) gave some tips to plus-size girls on how to dress for their shape. The tips are a little old, but Jordin gives some great advices, definitely worth posting. Here they are: 

1. Baggy clothes can make you look bigger. You want something that hugs you in all the right places – just not too much, where it’s too tight and you’re hanging out all over!”

2. I have a tiny waist in proportion to the rest of my body, so I like to wear corsety things that hug my waist.

3.  Darker types slim your legs down. A lighter wash jean makes everything look bigger.

4. V-necks give you an elongated neck. A crew neck can look like it’s choking you!

5. Dainty necklaces are nice. Chunky ones cut (your figure) up.”

Raven-Symone in a Green Dress

raven-simone-in-a-green-dress - Raven-Symone in a Green Dress

We aim to present a wide range of celebrity body shapes around here – and even if Raven doesn’t perfectly fit in our curvy category, I’m pretty sure that she’s got a common body type.

Looking at these pictures of Raven, I’m immediately thinking that she’s got a typical V body shape – we can call also call it reversed triangle or cornet: wide shoulders (virtually wider than the hips), large bust, broad back – long story short, she carries more weight in her upper half.

Now a sleeveless dress that embraces the hips isn’t exactly a MUST BUY and MUST WEAR on the triangle body shape. But what would be ideal for Raven?
