Melissa McCarthy Poses for Redbook, Reveals Why She Started Plus Size Clothing Line


Melissa on Plus Size Fashion—Funny gal Melissa McCarthy stars in the July cover story from Redbook Magazine, showing off her goofy side alongside her husband Ben Falcone. Matt Jones photographed Melissa for the shoot where she poses with a flower hat while her husband wears a clown nose. Inside the magazine, Melissa talks about her marriage and why she felt the need to start a plus-size clothing line.  “When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no,” she reveals.

    Melissa — I am so excited about your clothing line. Please don’t limit it to sportswear though. There is also a huge need in dresses and work clothing. Thanks!!!!!
