Let’s give a round of applause for the Black, stylish plus size women we now see on TV and on the big screen. From shows like Glee to Orange Is the New Black, we’re beginning to see a surge of full-figured women embracing their voluptuous bodies. Not to mention, they are killing it on the red carpets!

Amber Riley

When Amber first stepped on the scene on Glee, she immediately stole our little fashion hearts with her trendy style on and off screen. Over the years, Amber has shown that her style is versatile. From jeans to body con dresses, Amber slays in just about everything she wears.

Danielle Brooks

We are only on season 2 of OITNB and the cast already has won our hearts. When it comes to style, Danielle Brooks (a.k.a. Taystee) is no slouch. From fun and flirty printed dresses to chic and sexy red carpet gowns, Danielle always brings it.

Queen Latifah

We recently broke down the style lessons you can learn from quadruple threat Queen Latifah. But when it comes to The Queen Latifah Show, she shows us a more relaxed yet sophisticated style. From rocking cool menswear blazers to flowy printed tops, the queen always gives a realistic, everyday-woman approach to fashion.

Adrienne C. Moore

Adrienne Moore is another OITNB cast member gaining just as much notoriety on the red carpet as her on screen character, Black Cindy. We love her dashing color-blocked dresses, and the bold colors she’s unafraid to stand out in.

Oprah Winfrey

Women of a certain age can draw wardrobe inspiration from Momma O, because she shows you that you can be over 50 and still give us waistline, sex appeal and grace. From elaborate gowns to sophisticated sheath dresses, Oprah always brings her A-game when it comes to style.

Kierra Sheard

Gospel singer and reality TV star Kierra Sheard (daughter of Karen Clark Sheard) stays laced in current youthful trends.

Jill Scott

If there is one thing Miss Scott knows, it’s how to dress her voluptuous body. Jill rocks everything from jumpsuits to sexy sequined dresses, and has always exemplified that you can be stylish and plus size.

Octavia Spencer

From winning an Oscar to snagging a new network TV gig, Octavia Spencer has become quite the red carpet darling. Rocking designer dresses from Tadashi Shoji and David Meister, Octavia’s style is always pretty and put together.

Retta Sirleaf

Parks and Recreation star Retta has such a girl-next-door style on and off the hit show. You can always catch her in bold-colored dresses with a fit and flare silhouette.
