What do you do after you take home a Grammy and a Stellar Award in the same year? Easy, move on to fashion.

This week, Tamela Mann got a chance to showcase her plus-sized fashion line during an Ashley Stewart show. That means she, Tia, Chantal and more rocked original designs and tore up the runway! Of course, it wasn’t easy to get everyone ONTO the runway, but when they did everyone was impressed.

Still, if Tamela is looking to make a career of creating couture for women bigger than a size six (U.S. average is actually a 16), she still has an uphill climb against an industry that overwhelmingly focuses on clothes made for women built like Rihanna (who SLAYED at the Met Gala BTW).

But Tamela isn’t alone. Here are some other women who flaunt every beautiful inch of themselves when they hit the red carpet.
