Danielle Brooks is Slaying Christian Siriano’s New Lane Bryant Collection
Any color is the new black on Danielle Brooks as the face of Christian Siriano’s New Lane Bryant collection! The Orange Is The New Black star and “The Color Purple” newcomer was hand selected by Siriano to be the face of the line, according to People.
Lane Bryant has never looked so fierce! People released exclusive shots of the new campaign and they make us wish we were Danielle. The plus size star is being waited on hand and foot, literally by a group of gorgeous men, while she looks fierce and flawless in bright Spring colors with popping prints.
“It was fun to be surrounded by all these sexy men holding my dress and tying my shoes,” she told PeopleStyle. “Plus, the clothes helped me to embody the way in which we did the photo shoot—they make you feel sexy, like everyone has their eyes on you. It’s like these are the clothes you want to wear when you walk down the street and want to make heads turn.”
When discussing his inspirations and goals for the line with PeopleStyle Siriano said, “We took a lot of inspiration from 1950s ice cream parlors. I wanted there to be a lot of prints and stripes and textures, but still feel modern, with a little vintage feeling as well. I think the clothes are really great, wearable, fun and fresh, and that’s what we wanted to see.”
Siriano’s new line is a fun mix of sexy, flirty, sophisticated fun, and is definitely a welcomed breath of fresh air in the new and improved Lane Bryant aesthetic. It’s also another big milestone in the ever expanding acceptance and normalization of plus sized women.
So how does Brooks feel about regarded as plus size?
“What is there to be ashamed of,” she told PeopleStyle. “I’m sexy. I’m fine. It’s just a number that we’ve given it. I wear a size 14. That number, I could change it to 0, it won’t matter. I’m embracing where I am and trying to stay fit and healthy in the midst of that.”
Go head’ girl!
The collection will be available at Lane Bryant April 28th.
