Queen Latifah is already a successful actress, singer and a CoverGirl, and now the multi-talented star is adding designer to her resumé with a new clothing line for HSN. The Queen Collection, launching this August, includes clothing and accessories designed for every woman in sizes 2-24. “I’m so excited about it,” Latifah tells PEOPLE. “This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve been offered a lot of deals for clothing lines and actually started one that didn’t quite get off the ground but this is like a full circle moment for me.” Latifah, née Dana Owens, explains, “This is a young 14-year-old, 17-year-old and 22-year-old Dana trying to go shopping and actually finding the things she wants to wear or going on HSN and ordering the clothes she likes because they’re there and they are in her size. This has been a bit of a journey and it’s a really exciting venture.” She singles out the chic leather handbags she created as a favorite from the collection — for personal reasons. “I have a bag fetish,” she confesses. “I’ll have on sweatpants and a $3,000 purse. I don’t deny myself, bags are the one thing I’ll allow myself to splurge on.” And she’s banking on fans of the collection to feel the same about her designs. “I think the bag line is going to be really good. It’s versatile so it’s not going to look like the same bag from one collection to the next. There’s something for everyone.” Especially those who want to look like a queen. “I definitely want to be able to rock my bag. I figured, if I can rock it, why shouldn’t other people be able to?” The Queen Collection, including outerwear, will be available on HSN and HSN.com beginning Aug. 27. –Samantha McIntyre

bty- you sound like an idiot!
Just because people are larger means nothing. Queen Latifah is the perfect example of a bigger, healthy woman who is confident in the body she has and hopes to help others feel just as confident. I am a bigger woman, but I am also perfectly healthy according to my doctor (I probably have lower cholesterol than you!) So sometimes a smaller figure is purely for cosmetic reasons because idiots like you have this notion of what everyone should look like. You are part of the reason there are so many anorexic/bulimic teen girls in the world, aspiring to be like what they see on tv and in magazines. Queen Latifah is promoting a healthy outlook and teaching girls its okay to love themself the way they are and be able to look good in clothes while doing it!!!
