I had to recycle my favorite Beth Ditto fashion picture, because I have just heard the awesome news that Beth is designing a fashion line for Evans, a size 14-32 retailer in the UK. That’s right, I said designing, all Project Runway and stuff. That definitely sounds like the opposite of a hot tranny mess.
The Gossip star, a firm champion of the larger lady, is refusing to shed the pounds – in return for nearly 200,000 pounds! Beth is poised to sign the mega deal with plus-size retailer Evans to design a range of clothes in sizes 14-32.
We’re told: “She wants to show the world that big girls can have fun with fashion – and stick two fingers up to the size-zero brigade.” Last year, the singer reportedly turned down a design deal with Topshop after criticising their “limited” sizing policy.
Of course I am dying to see what kind of clothes she will design. I’m sure they’ll be daring and fabulous and ferosh. I checked out Evans and they do seem to need her help pretty badly, especially since they are one of these plus-size fashion sites with small-size models on the front page, which always makes me cringe. Plus, some of their clothes might be called a hot tranny mess.
Although they do have something called the Gypsy Cheese Dress, as well as excellent taste in fashion icons.
