While Anthropologie set its petite clothing dimensions for women 5 feet 3 inches and under, many of the guests at a dinner on Wednesday night to celebrate the latest installment in Whitney Pozgay’s collaboration of petite styles with the retailer easily cleared that threshold. At Lucques in West Hollywood, Calif., Pozgay, the Brooklyn-based designer of Whit Two for Anthropologie, hovered over the cutoff by an inch and a half, whereas Louise Roe, clad in a polka-dot ensemble in standard sizing from Whit Two, towered over the crowd.
Nasim Pedrad was technically too tall for the yarn-dyed striped romper, yellow floral maxidress and 15 other styles from Whit Two by an inch. Chances were slim that she’d be able to integrate them into her TV wardrobes. On “New Girl” she plays a cop, and on “Scream Queens,” she portrays a lawyer stuck in the Nineties who likes to pair pink blouses with acid-wash Firenze jeans. “It’s hideous but it’s fun,” she said of her sartorial choices on Ryan Murphy’s “Scream Queens,” which costars Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts. As for Whit Two, she said, “I’d wear this in real life.”
Pozgay is brainstorming a way to appeal to women and men of all sizes. She said she’s talking with Anthropologie about extending their partnership to home decor.
