Melissa McCarthy turned to fashion design when she ran out of plus-size clothes she likes!

o-MELISSA-MCCARTHY-REDBOOK-570

Melissa McCarthy has revealed a long struggle with finding clothes to fit her body. She says that two years ago, she was trying to find a designer to create a gown for her, and she was rejected by several big-name designers. She quickly realized the need for more plus-size designers, and took matters into her own hands!

The comedian lands the latest cover of Redbook Magazine, and inside, she opens up about her new clothing venture.

“Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers, very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people, and they all said no.

Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.

[I] always thought I would design women’s clothing, Then [I] ended up in New York thinking I was going to go to FIT [the Fashion Institute of Technology], and I started doing standup. So how A went to B, I don’t know!

I can understand Melissa’s frustration – but honestly – I’ve never been a huge fan of her clothes. I don’t know what to expect from her line – but hopefully she’ll release some cute clothes! I’m excited to see what she does!

 

Clairol Natural Instincts Spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis Looks Flawless for First Restaurant Opening in VEGAS!‏

Giada Clairol Natural Instincts

Celebrity chef and Clairol Natural Instincts spokesperson Giada De Laurentiis celebrated the opening of her first restaurant “Giada” in Las Vegas last night with her nearest and dearest. For the big night, Giada’s look was inspired by the art and colors threaded throughout her restaurant, designed to feel like you’re dining in Giada’s home.

Julie Morgan, celebrity makeup artist and longtime friend of Giada De Laurentiis, got her hair and makeup ready for the event. Here’s how:

Giada’s hair was freshly colored with Clairol Natural Instincts Amber Shimmer (a shade change for Giada) which gave her hair a gorgeous light golden brown hue. For the evening, she opted for loose voluminous waves to complement her Italian and California roots. To achieve this look:

1. Shampoo hair 24-48 hours after coloring hair for best results

2. Blow-dry hair and apply texturizing spray to roots for added volume

3. Take 1 inch barrel curling iron and twist sections of hair while leaving the ends of the hair out

4. Apply shine spray

5. Turn head over and move fingers through hair and spray a medium hold hairspray all-over to hold the curls in place, like Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer

To complement Giada’s soft locks, Julie went with stone and jewel-tone smoky eye liner by Trish McEvoy. Giada’s overall skin, cheeks and lips were done in a rose gold hue (Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, Jouer Rose Blush with Sunshine Bronzer and Rose Lip Pencil with Peach Pearl Lip Enhancer). Her look was finished with COVERGIRL mascara.

Giada’s wardrobe was styled by Stylist Sam Saboura — dress was by Cushnie et Ochs and shoes by Givenchy.

Christina is having a great year, a new single and a baby on the way. Its no surprise the Diva herself loves EOS lip balm. Its one of my favorites, the scents are amazing and they feel great on. I love the shape of the balm it makes it easy to find, even in the most cluttered handbag. Looks like Christina is using Summer Fruit, the perfect choice for the coming months.
