Keep it simple and play with the colors you’d decorate your home with. When it comes to your style, DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOR!” Check out this week’s behind the scenes style tip:
I had the pleasure of styling Queen Latifah for her recent feature in the May issue of In Style Magazine.
I dressed Latifah in Escada and Lafayette 148 New York with jewelry by Alexis Bittar and Jimmy Choo snake-skin heels. Check out the feature out now!
After our Spring Trends segment on the Queen Latifah show, I had a lot of fun taking questions from the ladies in our audience. I thought it would be a great way to kick off Ask Timothy here on ModernCurves.com.
Contributing writer, Lauren Chan approached me to be featured in a piece about styling curvy celebrities in Hollywood. Here are both the english and italian versions below.
Recently, I appeared on The Queen Latifah Show’s “Style Secrets” segment to talk about just how important shapers can be. The segment was a huge success and I had the pleasure of creating three makeovers with Queen Latifah’s fans.
Remember the (3) three S’s: Shape, Slim and Smooth when you are choosing a shaper and it should never hurt you. Another great tip is wearing a shaper when you’re shopping for new looks, trust me it will change your experience entirely. Shapers are a relatively inexpensive garment that compliments everything.
“America The Beautiful”, Sophisticated Sportif.
At this year’s Superbowl, I knew I wanted to create a chic and minimal look appropriate for the day.

Thank you curvy ladies for casting your votes for the People’s Choice Awards! I am very excited that Queen Latifah won for Best New Talk Show Host and what makes that very special is to know the fans love what she’s doing.
When planning her look for the evening I was inspired to create a modern, sleek and effortless ensemble.We chose a matte jersey dress designed by Angela Dean. Shoes by Gucci, jewelry by Sutra.

Week after week, Queen Latifah looks confidently curvy on her talk show. Thanks to her stylist Timothy Snell, Queen Latifah is a bonafide style icon among everyday women. Standing at a statuesque 5’10, Queen Latifah looks stunning in maxi dresses.
I’m flattered and excited to know that the curvy community is being inspired to look chic and sophisticated in every size. Her style is a mix of high and low pieces that are accessible to everyone.

Preparing for Halloween on the Queen Latifah show, the producers wanted to portray her as a Queen. They suggested many different Queens, but she chose to be Nefertiti, one of the most powerful reigning over one of the richest dynasties.
I wanted her to look elegant and regal, but I also like that the crown was reminiscent of what she used to wear in the 80’s during the “Don’t Let Me Wait”, “Come Into My House” era.
I shopped for fabrics that would be rich, gold, burgundy, elegant and draped because I knew she’ be carried out. More importantly I wanted her to be comfortable, so I had it constructed to fit her body.
I researched, sketched and shopped it out at Mood Fabrics (www.moodfabrics.com) and together with my costumer we made it happen.
