Ever Wondered What Celebrity Outfits Would Look Like On A Normal Body Shape?
The Debrief: One Instagrammer is on a mission to see if a size 14 woman can wear a size 0 celebrity’s outfit
Ever wondered how a Kardashian’s outfit would look on someone size 16? New York-based Instagrammer Katie Sturino who goes by the handle ‘The12ishstyle’ is here to answer that very question. With her own brand of humour and body confidence, she recreates celebrity looks seemingly without an ounce of anxiety. And, guess what? She looks great! Like a living, breathing motivational quote, she takes the fear out of fashion.
Not only is she a social media juggernaut in her own right, but Sturino is also ‘gram star The Fat Jew’s (aka Josh Ostrovsky) ex-wife and publicist. Basically, this woman knows her way around the internet and she’s using it to promote as she puts it (in American speak), ‘Style for the size 12ish-18ish girls living in a size 2 world’. Her series #supersizethelook places her side-by-side with a celeb in a near identical ensemble. It’s not about who looks better or pitting women-against-women, it’s a simple and effective way of showing that we can all wear whatever the heck we want whether we’re petite or curvy, tall or short. Scroll forth and get inspired…
