Foxy Roxy's Top Ten Women

Recently we have thankfully been seeing curvy celebs but it seems like with every new one you see another buckles to the pressure to become the Hollywood ideal, even when a smaller dress size doesn't suit her frame. Case in point, Jennifer Hudson. We here ar FoxyRoxy feel that she should have kept on a few pounds in order to keep her natural curves. Though still pretty, she just looks a little odd post Weight Watchers. This goes for you too, Kelly Osbourne, Jordin Sparks and America Ferrera. Still awesome gorgeous women but, why the sudden weight loss?

So we have compiled a list of celebs rocking the red carpet in something over a size 10. What's more is that the following ladies are fabulous first, and fat second. I hate when plus ladies get pigeonholed only to play "the fat friend" or make a career out of poking fun at her size. The best is when size takes a backseat to how awesome they are. 
Here are our picks. What do YOU think of this list? Comment below. 

1. Adele 
She can sing. She can dress. She can charm the press and peers alike. She can win Grammys writing about the losers who broke her heart. Sucks to be those guys, because she is one of the most successful women in music. All hail Adele!

2. Mia Tyler  
She may be known as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith's daughter or Liv's sister, but we like to think of her as the rock and roll princess that turned plus-size modeling around. She's married rockers, graced the cover of magazines and even had the guts to pose nude. Rock on! 

3. Amber Riley  
She holds her own next to the rest of America's sweethearts on Glee and shows up with the trediest styles on the red carpet. 

4. Brooke Elliot 
On Drop Dead Gorgeous, she at first played a character that was all about her size, but now her character has developed into a sassy, smart woman who runs it! And she even gets the sexy lead!! Finally!! I hate it when shows always have the plus size women with the fat men playing opposite them but every shlubby/fat male character on TV or Apatow movies gets the skinny supermodel love interest. Boooooo! Plus size women can date the model types, too! Trust me, I know from experience. ;) 

5. Beth Ditto  
She has been lampooned for "glorifying" the unhealthy side of plus size, but as far as I know her health is fine. She rocks as a lead singer and doesn't give an F what people think. A true rocker. Surprisingly enough, she became a darling of the fashion industry when designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gautier finally realized that fashion and awesomeness comes in all sizes and put Ditto on the runway! 

6. Sara Ramirez 
She was the sexy Dr Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy and though she, much like our next entry, are not really "plus" size they sure throw Hollywood a few curves that they normally can't handle!

7. Cristina Hendricks  
Driving Men Mad as well as all of Hollywood that can't stop talking about her voluptuous good looks

8. Queen Latifah 
I don't mean to put her so far down the list because she is incredible, but she has been applauded as a famous full figured vixen for years. I wanted to make way for the newbies.

9. Christina Schmidt
There are many plus size model/actresses out there but we picked this fresh face from Canadian fashion spreads and such shows as Degrassi. She is gorgeous and actually looks plus-sized instead of tall model who are just hot but since they over 110 lbs, they are considered plus-size though looking thinner than most average women. Christina is so stunning and we are glad we came across her!

10. La Cholita 
Few things are as awesome as a curvy woman who is so comfortable with her body that she makes her money and fame as a burlesque star. I once read about her in a magazine and ever since I found her look, style and confidence to be so incredible. Viva La Cholita!
