Plus size consignment event "Curvy  Chic Closet" in Portland, Oregon is bringing affordable fashion to the Oregon area in the form of semi-annual fashion shows and consignment sales.

Curvy Chic Closet recently held its 6th fashion show and 10th consignment sale event this past weekend and it was a huge success.

The Curvy Chic Closet event is considered the largest plus size consignment event in North America. It allows plus size women to consign and shop for gently used clothing and accessories at very affordable prices.

Curvy Chic Closet founder Becky Jarvis spoke to EFR exclusively about the event: " I started the Curvy Chic Closet event as a way to empower plus size women to feel beautiful. She also added: "When you find clothing that fits you, it changes the way you feel about yourself. I have encountered women in tears at my event over the years because they have found clothing that they love".

The event included a FREE fashion show and this year's participating designers included: E.G.O Boutique, House of Solana, RUE21 and Sonshine Apparel. The show was hosted by plus size male blogger and model Bruce Sturgill from

The Met Gala, one of the most anticipated nights in fashion was held today in New York City. Every year the Gala has a different theme and this year's theme was Technology, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology". 

One of the things that I like the most about this event is that most of the attendees wear couture and one of kind gowns. 

Because of the technology theme, there were a lot of metallic gowns on the red carpet in silver, gold and even white. One of our favorite gowns was Claire Danes who wore a glow in the dark Zac Posen gown, very fitting for the occasion.

The tickets for this Gala cost $30,000 each or $275k for a table. The money raised goes to benefit the Costume Institute. Last year the Gala raised over $12 million dollars.

Check out pictures of some of our favorite gowns of the night in the pictures down below. Follow us on Instagram @estrellafashionreport to see more pictures of the event.
