I think part of the problem here is not just celebrities in general, but the fact that there really arent any big-name curvaceous goddesses in the media. Not yet anyway. Kirsties show sounds like it will be a satire, and I dont think it will present her in a very glamorous way. Being associated with this show probably wont do much good for Lane Bryants image, I think. Lane Bryant has done a pretty good job of shedding its old "frumpy" image, and this could be a bit of a throwback to that old stereotype.

Now, if there really WAS a size 16 Britney Spears (remember Gabrielles post, about seeing a plussize Britney lookalike at a mall?), or size 16 Hilary Duff, or size 16 Catherinze Zeta-Jones, THAT would be a celebrity who could really give a plussize clothing chain an image boost.

I think Mia Tyler is a great fit for Torrid, especially since she is both a model AND a celebrity. But they havent really used her enough - not yet anyway.
