On Thursday, the Saturday Night Live star announced her plus-size clothing line, pauline, on Instagram.

From her Pinnable wedding dress to her Emmys ensemble covered in 3,500 sequins, Bryan has been inspiring with her style for years.

Her inspiration for pauline came from the custom designs she made with stylist Remy Pearce (also, her creative partner for pauline) for red carpet events and shows. After getting an abundance of positive feedback from fans, Bryant decided to make her custom designs more accessible.
