Melissa McCarthy To Launch Her Own Clothing Line: Check Out Her Style! (Photos)

Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy is one busy dame. She is fresh off the heels of hosting her first SNL. She won an Emmy for her show Mike and Molly, she was featured in the hilarious Bridemaids and she is a mom! But that’s not it. She also is going to branch out from the screen and dip her toes into the fashion biz.

Jezebel recently reported (via the the Hollywood Reporter) that Melissa McCarthy will be starting her own clothing line for plus sized women. And while this goal may seem to come out of left field, it turns out that Melissa has had a passion for fashion for years! Before she began her stand-up and acting career, she had planned to get into the fashion industry.  And now she feels there is a need for more selection for gals her size saying, “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.”

Would you let Melissa McCarthy dress you? Check out these photos of Melissa’s fashion sense would you wear her clothing line?
