Celebrities always serve as the best style inspiration because they are always walking around in outfits by top designers and setting the latest trends. But sometimes it can be hard to take styling tips from a favorite actress or singer if they are one the smaller side. As a size 16/18 I don't exactly see myself shopping for clothes that mirror Taylor Swift or Zendaya because no matter how fabulous they are, my body is different and things fit a lot differently. That is why it is so great for women like me to have plus-size fashionistas in the media to look up to and get some new style inspo from. 

From models like Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham to actresses like Danielle Brooks and Rebel Wilson, there are some amazingly glam plus-size celebrities to get style inspiration from. Not only does seeing these women own their curves teach us new ways to style our bodies, but it can also help us be more confident. Personally, the more plus-size boss babes I see on my social media and television screen, the more I want to be unapologetic about my thick thighs and belly rolls. And hopefully, this wave of body positivity continues in the fashion, beauty, and entertainment industries to the point where it becomes the norm. 

Here are 20 plus-size celebrity looks that show us we can be stylish at any size.
