Melissa McCarthy Set to Launch Surprising New Venture

The Short of It

Actress Melissa McCarthy is set to launch a fashion line. The inspiration? Her own frustration with finding clothes that fit her.

The Lowdown

We all know McCarthy is hilarious. I mean, you saw "Bridesmaids," right? But did you know she also studied at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology? And that she has designed many of her own red carpet looks?

Now the star is launching her own clothing line to fulfill a niche she says is not being met.

"It's a strange thing to stop at a certain size. Women don't, so why should clothes?" she told New York Magazine about the inspiration for her line, which will feature styles in all sizes.

Indeed, McCarthy makes a good point. And she clearly understands more about the modern woman than just her waist size. The star's line of casual clothing is wallet friendly, so you and I can actually buy it!

The Upshot

The star mom's clothing line, which will soon feature accessories and cosmetics, can be purchased in department stores and online starting next fall. Dare I say, "Yay!"? I mean, if she can design clothing as well as she can act, I think her fans are in for a very big treat.

I'm hoping eventually Melissa McCarthy will also design maternity clothing. As a mom-of-three, I can attest to how hard it is to find cute styles that are also flattering when you're pregnant.
