Plus Size Influencer Recreates Celebrity Photos To Show You Don’t Have To Be Skinny To Be Fashionable (32 Pics)

New York-based plus size blogger Katie Sturino runs popular size-inclusive beauty brand  Megababe, as well as her own platform  The 12ish Style. Sturino wrote in a piece for Glamour that she moved from doing PR to fashion full time after she went through a divorce. The experience and her subsequent weight gain completely changed how she saw herself and her size.

“When I was married, I was very concerned about my body. I was obsessed with maintaining a size 12, or staying close to it,”  she wrote. “Then, about three years ago, I got separated and I gained a bunch of weight.”

“At first, I didn’t even realize I was putting it on. I was working out, but it just kept happening. In total, I ended up gaining about 60 pounds. I became a size 16, which I still am, and a surprising thing happened—I really loved my body.”

Sturino’s goal with her blog was to spread some of that self-love around and show women in particular that they shouldn’t feel like they have to hide or can’t aspire to the same chic fashion choices flaunted by thin celebrities. 

She picks out her favorite looks and recreates them in her own size, and looks great doing it.

Below are some of her best side-by-side pics with style icons. Warning: she loves Meghan Markle. A LOT. (But then again, who doesn’t?)
