Style Star: Gabourey Sidibe | May 12, 2010

So faithful followers, I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been a horrible blogger. I know there has been quite a lag between blogs. Luckily, the fabulous Hillary Johns has been able to tie you all over with a delightful post about the ladies of Sex and the City until I posted.

I’d like to rave today about Gabourey Sidibe. The star, who’s major gig came in the form of the urban drama Precious, is representing the curvy with aplomb. She’s definitely not the average Hollywood waif who would blow away if a strong wind blew in. She’s obviously someone who has a positive body image. She embraces her body and dresses in what works for her. Although she’s not a big risk taker in the fashion department, she always dresses with her shape in mind, and in turn, looks pretty darn adorable.

The thing that stands out most about Sidibe ,though, is her confidence. She seems to have a bright outlook on life, the complete opposite of her character in Precious. Among the jaded and bored stars who’ve walked the Oscar red carpet hundreds of times, Sidibe stood out. She was genuinely happy to be there. She even compared the Oscars to prom. Her sunshine personality is refreshing coming from Hollywood. During her turn as a Saturday Night Live host, she excitedly played each role, occasionally laughing along to the sketch or fumbling and smiling through especially verbose dialogue.

So lets hope Sidibe’s star doesn’t fade. She has a lot to offer the entertainment business. She could teach her fellow stars about the importance of appreciating the unique opportunities they’re given.
