Chrissy Metz has had a breakout year, thanks to her hit show “This Is Us”. Now, the actress is slaying on the pages of Harper’s Bazaar.
Metz, 36, has done a full spread for the magazine and redefines what a pin-up girl looks like. The actress was ecstatic when she found out the news the magazine wanted her for the shoot and even more so when she found out it’d be pin-up-inspired.
“When I first heard Harper’s Bazaar wanted me to be sexy, I was like, ‘Who, me?’ I knew y’all were edgy but this is incredible. It’s validation,” she said of the spread. In the gorgeous pictures, Metz wears a low-cut red swimsuit and goes ‘full glamour’ with her cat-eye makeup and old-school hair.
While Metz looks incredible in the issue, she admits that it’s still difficult for her to find clothing from brands that aren’t always size-inclusive.“It’s slim pickings for plus-size women, especially for formal wear,” she told the magazine. She does credit designers and labels like Eloquii and Michael Costello, which support curvy girls.
“I want to wear something because I love it, not because it follows the rules. If I ever end up on the worst-dressed list, it’s not going to make me fall apart,” Metz said. “I want to look great and feel good and be comfortable, but at the same time, none of this really matters. This is the fun stuff,” she continued.
