Jordin & Jill show off for the plus-size girls...

I must admit...I stopped watching American Idol when Ruben studdard won (I know!) ... so I never caught Jordin Sparks in action..however the stylist in me is very impressed with her style! I LOVE LOVE LOVE when young women look like young women and NOT hoochies (for lack of a better word)! Doesn't it seem like the "industry" forces young women to look over-sexed and no one EVER looks like a teenager anymore???

Anywho...on to the question of the week by FELICIA:

Question: I recently saw Jordin Sparks(American Idol) in Essence Magazine. Do you happen to know what size she is wearing? I'm also curious to know if the designers she is modeling tend to design for plus size women? Thanks!

Answer: Jordin Sparks is about a 10/12 dress and stands 5'10! But she is very happy about her size... very refreshing in an industry that is obsessed with "thin is in"! Jordin tends to favor empire style dresses and tops -- -- has tres chic and trendy options for all things plus-size (not to mention Jordin started her modeling career at Torrid!). In the Essence Magazine article, Jordin is wearing dresses by: KLS Collection, Nicole Miller, Adam and Plenty by Tracey Reese.

KLS Collection is Kimora Lee Simmons high-end collection with sizes ranging from the very petite to the plus size glamazon! Miss Simmons also has a special section to the website designated esp for 14-24 sized women ... check it out at:

I LOVE NICOLE MILLER dresses! They are so comfy and very cute of course! Nicole Miller goes up to size 12...HOWEVER...some dresses that offer more stretch and depending on the style can also fit a 14. Shop at:

ADAM by ADAM LIPPES goes up to a size 10. It offers the cutest empire waist dresses for the summer at:
PLENTY by TRACEY REESE goes up to a size 12 ... PLENTY is uber-fab, African-American, fashion designer, Tracey's Reese's, creation of pieces for the young, fresh & budget conscious fashionista! You not only get FREE shipping, but you can also shop from all three of Tracey's collections:

While, I loved Jordins dresses....did we also get a look at JILL SCOTT'S dresses in the mag! Very sophisticated, yet fun! They were by Pamela Macklin for DeanZign. Check out the website for more info on where to buy call: 323.230.6761 ... the website isn't very updated...sorry!
