Our favorite comediennes are also very fashionable these days. It seemed like female comics, while always humorous and on point, were not always considered fashionable in the past (think Roseanne Barr). But now there’s a new crop of lovely ladies making themselves known and stealing the show who are attractive, modern and trend setters too. Of course, Queen Latifah comes to mind immediately as a beautiful plus size woman who is practically an icon for plus size clothes. She could even be considered a barrier-breaker for women in comedy with her amazing acting talent, gorgeous style and beauty. Now with a new movie coming out, Melissa McCarthy has shown the world that plus size women can be screen stars, have their own hit TV show (Mike & Molly) and still rock the red carpet in a beautiful plus size dress as Lena Dunham did in a Zac Posen gown at the the Golden Globes when accepting her award for Best Actress in a TV comedy series. Other comediennes we love include Mindy Kaling who just got her own sitcom, The Mindy Project. And who could forget SNL’s Maya Rudolph who also had us in stitches along with Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids. Who is your favorite funny lady?
