Queen Latifah Addresses The Blatant Disregard Designers Show For Plus Sized Clientele
In the clip, Queen Latifah joins ‘Red Table Talk’ and discusses the difficulties she faced as a fuller-sized woman trying to stay stylish.
“When your mom is the ideal beauty for us as Black people,” Latifah says, addressing Willow Smith. “She look like my little mini-me when we stand next to each other. I had to figure out how to find clothes that look right on me, on my size, in this world, when designers are not creating those fashion brands that have these sizes. If I was a size 24 and I have style, I still want to rock what the size 2 is wearing. Designers are like ‘No we’re going to stop right here.’ Okay, have you checked the stats on the sizes of the rest of the country? I think you might want to make some clothes in that size. That’s when I realized you don’t want to get it. You don’t want us to look like this. You don’t want us to live this fullness.”

She makes incredible points.
The Queen is such a beautiful and talented spirit. Talk about paving the way in so many ways. She’s been a rapper, singer, Broadway star, television star, movie star, producer and so much more and she has NEVER stopped. All hail the queen! For real.
A new episode of the Emmy-winning “Red Table Talk” with Queen Latifah will stream Wednesday, June 8 at 9am PT/12pm ET on Facebook Watch.
