Vanessa Williams launches affordable clothing line
Vanessa Williams has launched her own clothing line.
The 52-year-old actress has always been fascinated by fashion and is now planning to release her own collection - costing under $100 - on the Evine home shopping network.
She said: "This collection is a combination of me as a professional, me as a mother and what I wear for comfort around the house. It's your urban look, it's your suburban look, it's your casual look, and it's your glam look."
The former Miss America was inspired to create a line after being repulsed by her own "bra fat and love handles."
She explained to PEOPLE.com: "My friends and I complain about bra fat and loose arms. We've got a couple areas that we want to cover. Gone are the days when you're 20 and you can just wear a little spaghetti strap thing and everything's up and perky by itself.
"I've gone through my 30s, 40s, 50s and my body keeps changing with every decade. Yes, I've got bra fat and love handles. It's a constant struggle. So, my view is don't give up the fight, keep it moving, embrace where your body is going, and then dress accordingly. We don't want to mask them and we don't want to disappear in loads and loads of fabric and look like were wearing a muumuu. I want women to look the best they can. I love animal prints, greys, greens, khakis, and blues. I love that I got the chance to have a little colour--but nothing that's multiple leopards on top of each other--or, really, anything too cougar."
The collection is available from March 19, 2016.
