So I’ve been getting lots of e-mails lately imploring me to represent more plus sized fashionistas.
While I’ve profiled plus sized sirens Jennifer Hudson and Queen Latifah in past Style Files, there’s a new voluptuous vixen in town, representing for the girls with a bit more curve:
This former ANTMer parlayed her bubbly personality and undeniable charm into stints at BET and the pages of Italian Vogue and Essence. Her style has evolved accordingly, by focusing on fits that show off her best assets.
For Toccara, the rule is black, black, and more black…
…as the dark color is slimming and its monochromatic look creates a vertical line, making the body seem sleak. Toccara also favors plunging necklines…
…that bring the eye downward, and the focus more towards the center of the body. When she diverts from black, she stunts in dresses in eggplant or turquoise…
…or pops on a belt on other occasions to highlight her smallest part:
For more casual events, she opts for a v neck vest or t-shirt….
..worn with jeans in straight or boot cut styles to balance out her hips.
