We hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season. As we round the corner into the New Year, we’re looking back at the very best full figure fashion of 2013. And no one wore it better this past year than Adele and Queen Latifah. We adore both of these “leading ladies” for their charming personalities, outstanding talent and impeccable senses of style. Here’s a closer look at what we think are their biggest wins of the year.
As if her individuality does not shine enough, Adele stunned us with her dazzling performance and sparkling black dress at the 2013 Academy Awards. She took home her first Oscar that night and certainly showed the world she deserved it with her powerful song “Skyfall” from the James Bond movie of the same title. This dress was the perfect combination of sophistication, elegance and showiness that hugged her curves in all of the right places, especially after just having a baby just a few months earlier. Adele, we give you the honorary Oscar for best-dressed, too! Pair this knock-out dress with an Oscar-worthy bra, such as Leading Lady’s scalloped lace full figure bra, featuring soft lace and ultra feminine touches.
Adele hit another home run at the 2013 Grammy Awards. This unique floral knee-length dress was an excellent choice for the Grammys, which tends to be a less formal, more showy affair. The red, pink and black contrasting flowers make this dress a stand-out number. We love the floral cutouts at the neckline and hem, plus the sheer, long-sleeve. This dress flatters Adele’s figure with an A-line that would make the 1950’s proud. We recommend Leading Lady’s molded seamless wirefree bra for a smooth cup and all-over comfort and support.
Queen Latifah’s talent crosses many platforms from music and television, to the big screen. And we’d like to add the red carpet as well. She knows how to flatter her figure with v-neck gowns and subtle, well-tailored details. This gorgeous, white Grecian style is no exception. Check out the exquisite shoulder beading that accents her beautiful neckline. The high waistline flowing into a ruffled cutout and pooling skirt complement her shape nicely. In this pose, she truly does look like a queen.
Her majesty also looked amazing in this shimmery, charcoal gown. The texture adds an interesting element to the dress, and the side ruffles makes it feminine, sassy and right on trend. The tapered straps and v-cut neckline create a flawless line, making her shoulders appear strong and sliming her waist. The high bun and stacked sparking bracelets complete this look with perfection.
Queen Latifah’s style is consistent and exceptional. For around-the clock comfort and support, we recommend pairing her looks with Leading Lady’s molded, padded, seamless full figure bras in underwire or wirefree. They will keep her lifted to show just the right amount of cleavage, and the lower-cut of the bra will not interfere with her fashionable choices.
