"Ghostwhisperer": Doing Curvy Right.

I love anything Gothic and scary and having something to do with the paranormal.
And I LOVE fashion more than life itself. Seldom these two things meet and when on top of that we are talking about doing fashion for curvy chicks exactly right, then I become completely addicted.
This happened to me with the show "Ghostwhisperer". The wardrobe/costume people for the show,Costume Designer Dorothy Amos and Costume Supervisor Barbara Inglehart, really know how to dress curvy women beautifully. And I am not just talking about Jennifer Love "Your Body is A Wonderland" Hewitt but also true blue plus size diva Camryn Manheim, managing to never making them look vulgar, frumpy or dowdy.
The clothes in this show are absolutely lovely and you can see that these wardrobe/costume people really know how to work with curves. Beautiful vintage styles, princess seaming,gorgeous waist and bodice treatments, luxurious fabrics, body-hugging bias cut styles... all the things that show hourglass figures to their best advantage.
Here are some gorgeous examples of the clothing on the show:

I watch this show 50% because of the clothes....
Did you know that the song "Your Body is a Wonderland" was written for Jennifer Love Hewitt? I would think about that whenever some jerk starts talking about my thighs and criticizing my body...I bet no one has said that to Perez Hilton.
