Stars have been shining in the Hollywood sky for a long time, who long before the trend for body positivity defended the right to look the way they want and accept themselves in any size. We tell you about the most stylish celebrities who teach us to dress fashionably and relevant.

For a long time, thinness was the only standard accepted by the fashion industry. Over the years, we have seen how models, singers and actresses have tried to bring themselves to the generally accepted ideal. Now the fashion vector is gradually changing, and more and more plus-sized girls have begun to appear on catwalks, in advertising campaigns and on magazine covers (and further, we hope, the variety of models will only increase). True, there is no shortage of style icons with curvy shapes — many stars have long embarked on the path of self-acceptance and prove by personal example that girls of any size can dress up to date. We show eight of the most fashionable celebrities who have something to learn from.
One of the funniest and most positive actresses in Hollywood deserves a special place on our list. The witty and funny actress always took charisma, while she was particularly attentive to what she was wearing, and chose especially bright and unusual outfits both for the carpet and in everyday life. Although her curvy forms were only painted, and there were many women among her army of fans for whom she was an example, in 2020 the star still lost weight, although she remained in the “plus” size.
Ashley Graham became one of the first world-famous plus-size models to actively participate in fashion shows and appear on magazine covers, and was also the first plus-size heroine to appear on the cover of a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The star is experimenting with outfits outside the catwalks: the girl wears tight dresses, mini length, leather and crop tops — all that for many curvy girls still remains taboo. In addition, she launched a collection of plus-size swimwear to help different women fall in love with their bodies. During her popularity, Ashley has helped many women learn to feel comfortable at any weight.
Chloe’s forms, like her wardrobe, change, but her love of fashion and trends always stays with her. Despite the fact that the elder Kardashian often wears shapewear to create an hourglass figure effect (fortunately, her sister Kim has been producing a wide range of modeling clothes for a long time), her outfits can be a great inspiration for those who are still afraid of tight-fitting things or excessively deep cleavage due to curvy shapes.
Actress Dasha Polanko is especially known for the role of Dayanara in the TV series “Orange is the hit of the season”. And if on the screen we often see her in a prison uniform, then outside of work she can boast of a wide variety of wardrobe. The star is happy to wear trending new items and shows that the trends from the catwalks are created not only for girls with size zero. Dasha loves crop tops and tight-fitting outfits, trousers and jeans with an inflated waist, and at evening events she likes to experiment with a non-standard cut and an acidic palette of colors.
The charismatic actress, known for the TV series “Mad Men”, has chosen a special fashion strategy for herself and is more often inspired by retro images in the style of the 70s. More often, she chooses things with an emphasis on the neckline and waist, which she emphasizes with tight silhouettes or accessories specially located in this area.
Actress Melissa McCarthy is known for her excellent sense of humor, which gave her the status of one of the wittiest Hollywood stars. She first found herself in the spotlight in the TV series “Gilmore Girls” from 2000 to 2007. She achieved the greatest success and fame thanks to the film “Bridesmaids” in 2011 for the role of Megan Price. However, before the final acceptance of herself, one of the most charming stars has come a long way and now by her example helps other fans to love their body. McCarthy thinks through her wardrobe both on and off the red carpet, and is not afraid of bright colors or non-standard fabrics.
Winfrey is another celebrity who knows bodyshamers firsthand. But over time, the star and well-known entrepreneur has learned to ignore criticism and love her real self. “I remember all the years I wasted hating my body and wanting to lose weight,” Oprah shared. – Feeling guilty for every croissant, then giving up carbohydrates, then fasting, then dieting, then worrying when I wasn’t on a diet, then eating everything I wanted until the next diet. I could spend all this energy loving what I already have.” Now few people will pay attention to her weight, and journalists and critics focus more on what the iconic star has achieved. She has successfully woven fashion into the canvas of her life, having developed her own style — with sheath dresses, business suits, tight skirts and bright dresses for the evening.
Dana Elaine Owens, better known under the pseudonym Queen Latifah, struggled for a long time not only with her weight, but also with alcohol addiction. It was a long and difficult stage of her life, and it took her years to finally let go of the negativity and fully love herself. In public, she always looks elegant and impressive and thinks through images not only on the carpet. Latifah has become a vivid example of the fact that not all plus-size women prefer dresses and skirts — in her fashionable urban wardrobe there are a lot of bombers, leather leggings, sneakers and especially the star’s favorite oversize jackets.
