Beth Ditto, lead singer of punk band The Gossips, has become something of a plus sized fashion darling over the past year or so. She's gained some notoriety in the press over her lack of inhibition in rocking skimpy outfits and going nude on the covers of various magazines. She wears the same outrageous kind of outfits that everyone is used to seeing Lady Gaga in - but some people find it shocking, given her weight. Whatever.
When I heard that Beth had been tapped to design a line for Evans, I was curious to see how the brand would bring Beth's personal style and aesthetic to life in the form of mainstream, wearable offerings. Well, see for yourself: Geo Sequin Prom Dress
Black Prom Dress
Denim Pencil Skirt
Beth's collection takes its cues very obviously from 80's pop style, both good (pictured above) and bad (click here for more). I'm a fan of diverse options for plus size Bombshells to choose from, and in that spirit I love the collaboration that's gone on here. On the flip side of diversity, I will run screaming if I see anyone wearing this: .
