You've followed her career from Gilmore Girls to Ghostbusters and can pretty much recite Bridesmaids verbatim. But did you know that Melissa McCarthy actually went to college at New York's prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology? Fun fact: It was her school buddy (turned major shoe designer) Brian Atwood who encouraged her to try stand-up comedy in the first place.

Well, the Emmy winner has finally come full circle with the launch of her eponymous clothing line for all sizes (yup, 4 to 28). Over the next month the full range of items will roll out at the likes of Macy's and Bloomingdale's. But we picked out a handful of plus-size pieces that are currently up for grabs at Nordstrom.
