Award season is a time when the fashion monster in all of us rears her pretty vain head in anticipation of the glamour and style and whatever new trends the celebrities bring to the red carpet. At ATCL we are always on the lookout to showcase and spotlight the curvy celebs who (lets face it) don’t get the kind of buzz they often deserve. Every year between November and February across the world, the music and film industry bring us sartorial excitement as we also celebrate the talent and excellent craft of our favorite stars.
So, in homage to the Oscars coming up on Sunday, we’ve done a style roundup of the Award season so far and the curvy/chunky celebrities who walked the red-carpet. From the NAACP Awards to the BAFTAs, let’s just say the plus-size stars didn’t come to play.
