Orange is the New Black actress, Danielle Brooks is the face of designer Christian Siriano’s new plus size line for Lane Bryant.
Siriano handpicked the #BeyondClassicallyBeautiful starlet to represent the brand.
Brooks looks beautiful and flirty posing in the colorful pieces that makeup the line.
“Being plus-size, it’s very easy to put a woman in black or navy dress,” she says, “but to get to show color on my chocolate skin is really fun for me, and it’s not an option that always comes around,” she told People Stylewatch.
“And for plus-size women to feel confident in what they’re wearing, Christian hits it on the nail with that,” she continues. “I really appreciate a designer of his stature saying ‘I’m going to design for every woman.’ There is such a huge market. The plus-size industry is huge.”
Siriano says designing for every woman is a no brainer for him.
“When you sign up to be a designer, and be a creator, the goal at the end of the day is to sell clothes that women can wear. We’ve always dressed women of all shapes and sizes since I’ve started. So I’ve never understood not having something for every woman. It’s like, why would you do that?”
The line is set to launch in 5 days. Stay plugged into LaneBryant.com for more details.
