New Yorker Katie Sturino firmly believes that great style can happen at any size. After 10 years of working in PR, she started a blog called the12ish style to introduce girls like her to more size-inclusive fashion and to share her tips and tricks on how to get dressed while being plus.

Katie's blog and Instagram quickly gained thousands of followers as people began to relate to her body-positive message. Finally, here was a happy, healthy woman for whom gaining some weight was not the end of the world. “When I was married, I was very concerned about my body. I was obsessed with maintaining a size 12, or staying close to it,” she wrote in Glamor.

“Then, about three years ago, I got separated and I gained a bunch of weight. At first, I didn’t even realize I was putting it on. I was working out, but it just kept happening. In total, I ended up gaining about 60 pounds. I became a size 16, which I still am, and a surprising thing happened—I really loved my body.”

Katie now runs the beauty brand Megababe on top of her blog, and also finds the time to have a little fun recreating celebrity outfits on Instagram. Scroll down to check out a few of our favorites, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I am a plus size woman and i have to say i would never feel comfortable showing my belly. I you have no problem with it: more power to you, you rock. Crop tops or a blouse like hers is just something i would ever consider wearing.

From personal experience, the one piece/pants thing looks pretty awful from behind on anyone over about 90 pounds (similar looks, sans prints, were in in the 70s/80s.)

Two things here: 1. I absolutely LOVE Chrissy Teigan. She could wear a burlap sack and still look great. 2. I think that Katie Sturino looks fabulous in this outfit. Even next to Chrissy Teigan.

Fugly dress regardless of who wears it. Markle has never had much of a waistline though and a dress like this emphasises that.

I think Victoria Beckham has the most boring range of outfits that anyone ever wears. Here we have one of her shapeless suits.

A lot of the pictures look great. This one however does not. I myself have some extra kilos on the body, but some cloths just aren't made for the biger size. It looks off and forced, and i think this looks off and forced.
