Actress Danielle Brooks is now adding designer to her resume! On Instagram a few days ago, the Orange Is the New Black star announced that she’s collaborating with Universal Standard to design their new Tria Collection.
The women representing Lane Bryant are clapping back against fat-shamers in their newest ad. Danielle Brooks and Gabourey Sidibe join Ashley Graham and Candice Huffine and Alessandra Garcia to stand confident in the face of online trolls.
Each of the women read actual comments from haters in the campaign is titled #ThisBody Is Made To Shine while rocking lingerie for a campaign that the company says aims to “spotlight what it means to unapologetically celebrate themselves in spite of any adverse feelings or feedback.”
Danielle Brooks responds to “no one should be comfortable in a size 14″ with “I sure the hell am.”
Representation matters. While these sorts of campaigns usually celebrate the smaller plus-sized women, it’s great to see Ms. Sidibe in the mix.
The 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards celebration is underway at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, and the cast of Orange Is the New Black graced on the red carpet.
