I just got a scoop from a fabulous new friend who is a major player in the plus size world regarding Queen Latifah and Wal-Mart. Apparently the plus size diva (who looks absolutely FABULOUS in the her new movie “Last Holiday”) is in talks with the superstore to do a fashionable plus size line, possibly an extension on her deal with Curvation, an intimate apparel line for plus size women owned by Vanity Fair Corp., parent company of such brands as Wrangler, Nautica and The North Face. Since the partnership with QL, the brand has been a hot seller at Wal-Marts across the country. A good move for Wal-Mart, who really needs the good PR that QL brings.
I still think they need to have Marc Jacobs do a line.
