I don't think it's just the celebrities doing. Designers in general focus on a more fit - petite woman.

I agree with the 3rd comment that they look much smaller then named unless of course they're going by UK sizing, but European sizing differs from country to country. Anyways Kate's Topshop line wasn't that great. Only thing from the line I liked well actually I loved the navy blue clover top and the dress version of it was nice to other than that everything else was just to drab and looked to Goodwill really. Most celebs shouldn't do fashion lines the Hilton sisters lines both sucked even Nicky's and I usually like her fashion sense vs many other celebrities it girls. Don't even get me started on Beyonce or the Olsen twins kid's line ick. Then that just reminded me the Olsens have a new line The Row which wasn't impressive either. I'm still curious on the quality of the line though since I've only seen pictures.

I hate looking through catalogs or on websites and seeing ms. size 0 or size 2 in the clothes I'm interested in, as I am not a size 0 or 2. It doesn't provide a good example of what the clothes will actually look on someone other than a runway model.

I'm overweight but i still find clothes to wear, i wish i was skinnier and now i get over it so i guess I'll live, but i wish they made really cute clothes in plus sizes and larger sizes for my breasts they are large and the rest of me is skinny, it really sucks to be me today

Usually in photos they pin the clothes in the back to make them fit differently and more sexy/flattering than they actually do. Kate clearly has on a large size vest (so it cuts lower) a few of the buttons are undone, and it's most likely pinned in the back to show off her waist.

Actually I think even skinny minnies look weird in hotpants. We should just ex- hot pants out of the stores.

It's knowing what style and suits your figure! not EVERYONE will look fab in hotpants.

Aw man, I was like, that size 10 looks the best in everything and I'm and size 10 so I must look pretty good, too, right?!? Cuz I'm like, jeez, size 10 is big but she looks thin. Then I read about the UK sizes. :(

I don't think it matters if the celeb is thin as long as the sizes run accurately and don't stop at a size 6.

I'm so glad to see this! Even the UK and US size difference, needed to show that all the woman look just as good in all the outfits. If you pick something that's flattering for your body, you're going to look good. These are pretty common outfits- shorts and a dress. Which all woman wear. Very good comparison. Wish more designers would look at this and the replies. So what now they might have to be a certain weight at certain agencies, but not all, not a "mandatory" thing. So what 2 models died. They just want that money no matter what. When it's woman like us that buy the clothing in the stores. I think it will be a long time if ever, that the size 4 model will change.

the only reason they actally sell the cloths is because they are famous...i mean most of it is pretty ugly(thought i do like those shorts!

I'll take Madonna ANY DAY over the usual crop of Vogue models. Madonna is only 5'4". She might wear a US size 2 but at that height, she doesn't need to be extremely underweight to achieve it. It's not like the 5'11" size 0 models we've been seeing on the runways. Madonna may be thin, but it's a healthy kind of thinness that's a lot more achievable than what we often see in fashion ads. As for the poor fit of the clothes on other women... well, I've never been to Topshop, but this just seems like typical H&M to me. I never saw anything at H&M that looked good. They use cheap fabrics that don't drape well, they take shortcuts in the construction that cause an awkward fit, and nobody really looks good in the clothes unless the garment has been pinned in back and carefully arranged for a photo shoot.

all the models who are bigger than size 6 look terrible in the photos. the size 8 kate moss vest looks way too tight which it shouldnt seeing as size 8 person is smaller and skinnier than the "average" person. i dont think celeb lines cater for women over size 6.

Cravingsugar, I think you totally hit the nail on the head! :/
cravinsugar cravinsugar 10 years
hey GeikoSera-this is my opinion of course, but-most lines WILL NOT make clothes that look good on bigger people, as they don't want to have big people wearing their clothes. For example, I could not go out an buy anything designer because for the most part, these clothing lines do not make plus size size women are not allowed to dress in 'cute' stuf like that so no one in the high end market makes it.

The larger sizes don't seem to be tailored as well as the smaller ones. Too much puckering and such on the sides. No excuse for that. :(

They should have clothes for skinny people, they have clothes for fat people.

I'm a US 0/2 but I have a DD chest (genetics, not surgery) - so no celebrity-styled anything works for me without having the possibiliity of looking VERY trashy - most of the celebs who design these things are much more proportionately built. However, right now I'm wearing one of the Madonna H&M shirtdresses and I've gotten nothing but compliments today. Like so many of the other women have noted, it's all about knowing what works for you.

I think I would like it if someone more my shape/curves (read "not a size 0) would make clothes. Maybe Scarlett Johanson or Jessica Simpson. I like Daisy Fuentes jeans because I have a bigger butt and smaller waist and her jeans fit me well. Obviously that dress of Madonna's looks awful on the size 14 girl. It looks 2 sizes too small. And the I think Kate Moss' waistcoat wouldn't look good on anyone any bigger (the size 8 looks a little chunky in the tummy in it).

the size 14 girl cannot be a size 10 - i'm a size 8/10 and she looks bigger than me (or maybe im just delusional). maybe because i'm 5'7?
