GabiFresh unveils new lingerie collection

Gabi Gregg is not slowing down any time soon.

Just on the heels of the launch of her clothing line Premme, the GabiFresh founder has just unveiled a brand new intimates collection with UK-based brand, Playful Promises, reports Fashionista. According to InStyle, the new line will feature “loungewear, bras, panties, and garters all priced from $20-$46,” while also being offered in a range of sizes — something that was important for Gregg.

“As someone who wears an HH cup, it’s hard to find sexy, supportive options,” she said. “I’m so sick of beige and boring, and I wanted to create statement pieces, which Playful Promises does so well. I’ve been so impressed with their cool options in a large range of sizes, and it felt like the right fit for my brand.”

With a full range of items that Fashionista says includes “ultra-sheer, lace pieces, cage-contouring details and seductive separates all washed in a sleek black,” Gregg says she wants nothing more than to have women feel “badass.”

“I hope it makes them feel sexy, confident and on top of the world.”

Amen to that! Fashionista reports that bras from the line come in 36-38B-I cup and40-44C-I cup, while briefs and PJs sizes range from size 12 to 24.

Rae named new face of CoverGirl

Issa Rae may be the creator and star of HBO’s Insecure, but in her latest project, she is inspiring us to be anything but insecure.

According to InStyle, Rae has been named the new face of major cosmetics brand CoverGirl, joining fellow on-screen stars such as Zendaya, Sofia Vergara and Ellen DeGeneres. While she joins a long list of fellow CoverGirls, for Rae, being the face of the brand is about much more than modeling new cosmetics.

“Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways,” she said in a release. “This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others.”

In addition to providing a statement on her new role with CoverGirl, Rae also took to social media to express her excitement over working with the brand, saying she never thought she’d be in such a position.

“I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head,” she wrote. “Never EVER in my life did I imagine I’d be one. I am SO honored and SO excited for what’s to come.”

Congrats, Issa!

Lovato to launch fall ‘Fabletics’ collection

Demi Lovato’s first collaboration with Fabletics was so nice, the duo is doing it twice, returning to the drawing board to launch an all-new fall collection.

According to a release, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer’s second collaboration with the activewear line will feature 12 exclusive outfits that are “a combination of performance and lifestyle pieces with new design elements such as contouring waist straps, paint splatter camo and vibrant heather prints.”

Featuring a bold color palette including deep magentas and bright blues, Lovato’s new collection will pack a fierce, yet feminine style into every piece, which includes everything from tops and sports bras to leggings and outwear. The collection will also be available in sizes ranging from XXS to 3X and even includes short, regular and tall lengths.

But beyond providing stylish, empowering clothing to work out and live in, InStyle reports that her second collection will also continue to support Girl Up’s School Cycle program, which “works with the United Nations Population Fund to give girls bikes to get to school safely.”

While Lovato certainly knows that there’s nothing wrong with being confident, she told InStyle that maintaining her physical health helps her in her effort to achieve good mental health.

“I’m still learning to love my body. It’s a daily thing, and I don’t think you ever learn at one point in your life, and then it’s fixed forever,” she said. “Your body changes, you change. It’s just a matter of how much you’re working on yourself. I make sure that I put my mental and physical health before work. That is what keeps me in a good state of mind.”

Lovato’s second capsule collection is available for purchase in Fabletics stores and online.

Huffine launches lingerie collaboration with Fortnight

A new collaboration is on the horizon, this time from the minds of model Candice Huffine and the folks at Fortnight Lingerie.

According to InStyle, the model is teaming up with Fortnight Lingerie to release a 12-piece collection of comfortable, yet sexy lingerie in a range of sizes. Available in sizes up to XXL and a G-cup, InStyle reports that the line “features everything from high-waisted briefs (that are anything but matronly) to cute teddies and longline bras all in cool prints created specifically for the brand.”

With a variety of sizes and styles available, Huffine told InStyle that even details right down to the print are designed to encourage individuality.

“The print is slightly different on each piece,” she said. “I wanted women to celebrate themselves and their own individually. These pieces are powerful and feminine.”

Even the pieces themselves are created with the idea that every woman can wear them according to their own style; they don’t have to be just lingerie, says Huffine.

“Try the bodysuit as a top or a tank, and don’t be afraid to layer,” she told InStyle. “I tried the bodysuit with a t-shirt underneath. I rolled the sleeves and paired it with jeans. The longline bras would look beautiful under a sheer top. The possibilities are endless.”
