Curvy Night Out!


Hello Curvy Superstars!

Even though we may be stuck inside, I’m happy to provide a fashion distraction. In March, I had the pleasure of hosting a Night Out with Marina Rinaldi showcasing the new design collection by ROXSANDA

A division of the Max Mara brand, the company, founded in 1951 by Achille Maramotti, is based in Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy, and Marina Rinaldi is the name of the family’s legendary great grandmother who, in the 1800s, was the effective founder of clothes cut to fit curvy shapes.

For years, I have shopped at Marina Rinaldi for my celebrity clients. It was such a tremendous honor when they invited me to style this new capsule collection for an evening in their Beverly Hills boutique. It was a dream to partner with one my favorite luxe curvy brands and celebrate fashion (sizes range from 4 to 24) that work for every ocassion from a power lunch to the boardroom to date night.

“What a blast we had that night as models floated about the room flaunting the new collection, guests experiencing first hand the luxe, colorful and modern but chill outfits with signature cocktails “. Celebrities including Golden Globe and Emmy winner Camryn Manheim, Oscar and Tony winner Marcia Gaye Harden and celebrity stylists such as Philip Bloch browsed the collection for their clients while fashion influencers and entertainment executives shopped for their new pieces.

I extend a special thanks to Jacqueline Rawlings, Manager of Special Events and External Affairs – Max Mara USA, for making this evening possible. A big thank you to the Beverly Hills boutique manager Samantha and her entie team.

Queen Latifah Slays ​2019 VMAs in Orange!









The buzz around the 2019 VMAs was huge, with surprises, tributes and a brand-new locale. Queen Latifah was asked to perform in a Hip Hop tribute to Jersey and reunite with her co-star from Hairspray, John Travolta as a presenter.

When Latifah and I began to collaborate on her look, her vision was a sun-kissed and fresh vibe to end the summer. I was inspired by Sergio Hudson’s 2019 Fall/Winter collection and chose his vibrant bold pantsuit.

“Modern Day Curves” on The Steve Harvey Show!

Mr. Harvey invited me to appear on his show “Steve” to speak about the latest fashion trends for Spring 2019 and how women can rock those trends for their bodies from size 2 up to 22. The segment was entitled Modern Day Curves and it began with Q&A with the studio audience and ended with a colorful and sophisticated fashion show.

The setting was dramatic and I featured four fashion categories; daywear/casual, power suiting, date night and resort wear. My message to you ladies is to think outside of the box and work each look to fit your particular body type.

Queen Latifah Sparkles at the 2019 Oscars!

Queen Latifah sparkled as she presented one of the Best Motion Picture nominees for the 2019 Oscar presentation. The Oscar red carpet featured unique silhouettes in metallics on Jennifer Lopez, Amy Adams and Emma Stone.

I collaborated with designer Michael Costello to create a classic silhouette using black organza and shimmering pave tone on tone revealing just the right amount of skin.

I am humbled by the success of my Timothy Snell Swimwear Collection with Always For Me. In Style Magazine has just named the (name of suit) as the #1 best zip up to buy! It was my goal to create sexy and chic swimwear inspiring curvy ladies to strut from the beach to cocktails with confidence.

Always For Me Timothy Snell Collection “Best Of”

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 4.12.11 PM

Creating swimwear that makes a woman feel confident in her own skin was a top priority for Snell. “It’s about the fit and exposing what you’re comfortable showing. When a swimsuit fits and looks amazing, it eliminates any hesitation.” Snell continues “Rule of thumb: To feel confident in your choices, look for cuts that accent your best assets.”

It’s 2017 Curvy ladies and I wish you all the best for this new year! I have many style surprises in store for you and will keep you posted as they unfold!


I’ve been working with the brand Lafayette 148 for a long time and it’s no secret I appreciate their sophisticated and modern silhouettes. Recently, they featured an interview about my work in curvy fashion, my favorite fashion picks from their 2017 collection and what the future holds for Curvy fashion.

Lafayette 148: What is the biggest challenge for styling curvy women?
The biggest challenge is a lack of amazing products. It has become 1,000% better, but there is such a long way to go. For example, the shopping experience is dismal; more retailers need to put forth more effort in creating an experience. Through clothing presentation, lighting, visuals, music etc – create a hip factor. 


Spiraling Jacquard Reversible Geometric Darby Jacket

This fashionable jacket is like wearing art, and on top of it – it’s reversible. You have not one but two options when wearing this look – over an evening gown for the holidays or over jeans and a t-shirt, or blouse for the daytime.

Appearance: Steve Harvey Show – Curvy Girl Fashion with Tim Snell


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-10-44-48-amAlways funny and entertaining, the Steve Harvey show aired a one-hour special celebrating the Curvy Body. I had the pleasure of returning to the show to do two segments, a “dress for less” fashion segment and a “date night” makeover for a lovely lady.


“This man, this man right here is THE man in Hollywood. Listen to me when I tell you this, when it comes to Curvy fashions this is the man that dresses them all. He styles Queen Latifah, Amber Riley, Angela Bassett – just to name a few. This is THE man in Hollywood. Game Over.” 

– Steve Harvey

For the fashion show segment, I presented major red carpet trends and re-created the looks for up to 75% less. Brands are finally recognizing the need for quality pieces that are on trend for the curvy market.

Watch Steve Harvey: Curvy Girl Fashion Show | Hulu












For the next segment I worked with Anna, a guest who needed a “date night” look that would make her feel beautiful and confident. She wanted something feminine and sexy inspired by Melissa McCarthy’s lacy red carpet look.

I chose a fit and flare silhouette to accentuate her hourglass figure and THE color trend of the season “Bordeaux”. Anna was ready for a night out feeling confident, beautiful and feminine.

Trending Now: The Supersize Cuff


, , , , , , , , , , , ,




The fashion editor in me always finds inspiration from my favorite magazines and this feature is an example. I found it in the pages of the September issue of InStyle. It’s one of those little touches that can give last season’s wardrobe a quick update and it works for every body type.


Michael Kors features the look in his latest collection:


A great tip for curvy ladies:

Purchase a men’s dress shirt with french cuffs and have your local cleaners fit it to your body. Wear the cuffs down with or without cuff links.



The Chunky Heel: The Season’s Latest Shoe Trend


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


photo-15The TREND to indulge in is the chunky heel. For those of you who don’t necessarily like to wear a skinny heel, the chunky heel is a sturdier but sexy alternative. In a sophisticated nuetral or with stylized details there are plenty of options from expensive to inexpensive.

Style Diary: Style Code Live – “Military Madness”


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


The Camo look is a fashion classic and the way you rock the look keeps it on trend. The folks at Style Code Live invited me to come by and talk about key items to make the trend contemporary and chic.

“…Fashion is to be played with but only with the right elements…” – Tim Snell

(click link to find to shop each of the looks online)


Look #1 – The Military Jacket + Black Dress + Stacked Bootie + Vintage Pins

The drawstring creates an hourglass silhoutte that accentuates the waist and brings a feminine look to an otherwise masculine jacket. The chunky heeled bootie works for women who may not want to wear a skinnier heel.


Look #2 – The Camo Capelet + White Tunic + Slouched Pant + Suede Heel

The Capelet is a huge trend shown here in a camo print. It can be worn with a crisp white button down shirt, tunic, turtle neck, tee shirt or contrasting camo print. The Slouched pant brings an urban feel to the look accented with the sophistication of a suede heel. Don’t just wear the military look during the day, wear it in the evening as well.



Look #3 –  The Bomber Jacket + Tee + Pleated Skirt + Bootie

The Bomber jacket is a military classic and this outfit feminizes what would normally be a masculine piece. Many curvy women prefer the look of an a-line skirt and the placement of these pleats flatter every body type. The Southwestern bootie trend is back and this pair completes a flattering monochromatic look with a pop of color at the top.



Parties: Bally’s Beverly Hills + DKMS Benefit

Guess who I had the pleasure of partying with this evening? The beautiful Jazmine Sullivan who performed at the Bally’s Flagship store opening in Beverly Hills. The gala was a fundraiser for the DKMS foundation (

The event brought out entertainment, fashion and music tastemakers hosted by Grammy Award winning producer Randy Jackson, Katharine Harf Co-founder of DKMS and Claudio Cividino, Bally Americas CEO.

The night was filled with great music, food and champagne with a percentage of Bally purchases going to DKMS.  IMG_9027Nice to have some shopping time for me!

In the May 12th article “Fat Thighs Matter” by Frenchie Davis for the curvy actress/singer gives a shout out to “Curvy Style With Timothy Snell”.

Curvy Style is a series on CentricTV that documents one of Hollywood’s hottest celebrity stylists on his fashion-forward journey to help thicker-than-a-Snicker celebs, and everyday women, feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable in their skin. This is a beautiful thing.

The show is a beautiful thing, because for as long as I can remember, plus size women have typically been excluded from dialogue surrounding fashion and beauty. For years, we’ve consistently been told, both verbally and nonverbally, by the style industry that we dare not have the audacity to feel beautiful or sexy.
