Behind the Scenes: The Meredith Vieira Show
Posted on January 29 2015
On January 29th, Hey Gorgeous President and Co-Founder Aimee Cheshire appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show (along with lots of cute clothes from our shop!).
To see everything Aimee brought with her to the show, see our Meredith Vieira Show Collection.
In an effort to guide curvy ladies to dress for their shape, Aimee was asked to appear on the show and give her expert advice on their segment on "The Curvy Gal's Guide to Fashion."
As someone who is plus herself and who has worked in plus fashion for over a decade, Aimee was the perfect expert to turn to. She brought with her some of her very favorite pieces on heygorgeous.com, and explained not only why they are such cute pieces, but why they fit, flatter, and work with curves.
Aimee put together 4 looks from her favorite designers. The first look is totally business appropriate- a chic but still fashion forward (and sexy!) pantsuit.
This suit is by Carmakoma, a Danish designing duo who are doing incredible things for fashion forward curvy ladies. Their looks are chic but edgy, feminine but strong, and eye-catching but classic.
Aimee urges curvy ladies to try this suit because it has a high-waisted pant which skims right over any tummy trouble spots, and also because on both the jacket and the pant there is black paneling that creates a beautiful, streamlined silhouette.
Take a peek at the Georgia Blazer and the Wood List Pant- both which work just as well as separates as they do together.
Looking for the perfect piece to wear under your blazer? Aimee used the black, long-sleeeved Sunset Top, also by Carmakoma, on the model.
The second look is a perfect date night ensemble. A flirty skirt and lacy top are not just cute and fun, but can be extremely flattering.
Aimee likes this lacy, flirty look because the vertical lace inset can show skin while still creating a slimming, vertical stripe.
This silky, seductive top is the Lapo Top by BB Dakota- and it comes in a yummy shell pink which is flattering on so many skin tones. The skirt is also a BB Dakota piece, the Schifters High Waisted Lace Skirt. A high waisted skirt again helps smooth out lumps and bumps.
The following look was a beautiful nighttime look featuring a beautiful gilded dress by IGIGI.
The sparkly Adelle Dress in Guilded Laurel has an amazing fit. It is cinched at the waist, which is almost always flattering, and has a gorgeous wrap style top. The top also has lots of structure, and even though it shows off the décolletage, also keeps everything in place. This dress reminds Aimee of a piece she would see in one of her favorite shows, Downton Abbey.
The final look is an edgy-meets-girly black and white outfit.
A peplum top beautifully glides over any tummy troubles- and this top is so beautiful. In an on-trend print, with a flattering neckline, the Posh Ponte Peplum Top by Kiyonna is a no-brainer. Aimee encourages curvy ladies to wear white denim, and not to shy away from white. With a black leather jacket, the white Twiggy Z Cigarette Jean really softens the look. The peplum top and Skyler Faux Leather Jacket by MYNT 1792 work well together as they both cinch the waist, creating an hourglass shape.
A trip to 30 Rock and some a peek at the behind-the-scenes of some NBC shows was a thrill for Aimee. And we're all jealous!
