 Gabby Sidibe Reportedly Too Big For Vogue

 “Even with all of the fame and Oscar buzz ‘Precious’ got this past year, that’s still not enough to land star Gabourey Sidibe on the pages of Vogue magazine. According to my sources, Miss Sidibe’s weight is what’s keeping her out of Anna Wintour’s publication, where being rail-thin is a necessity.

Vogue Magazine Rejects ‘Precious’ Gabby

Sources tell me that the editors of Vogue magazine rejected the idea of letting Oscar nominee Gabby Sidibe grace its fashionable pages because of her size. 

“She’s a joke in the fashion community. What she wore on the red carpet at the Academy Awards wasn’t a dress, it was a tent,” one nasty little fashion queen (who I shall not be talking with again) told me.

“Vogue is venue where designers debut their best new pieces. All are of which are one of a kind and sample size. It would be impossible to get a regular-sized girl in those clothes, let alone Gabby,” a less acid-tongued fashion source explained.

A spokesperson for Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who after a trip to Minnesota said, “I can only kindly describe most of the people that I saw as little houses,” didn’t return calls by deadline.

I say, if Vogue is so buddy-buddy with all the designers, tell them make a dress for Gabby for the next issue. See? Problem fixed. That was easy! And for all of you magazine editors out there, normal people don’t want to see all of these skeleton models — give us the real girls!”

What are your thoughts on the great Gabby debate? Should Hollywood and the fashion industry be so focused on her size or her talent? Does one overshadow the other?

Personally, I wish they’d leave the girl alone.

XOXO,

    Agreed!! The girl looks great and is proud of who she is and confident! Many plus girls would die to have the confidence she does and I love that she is proud of her size and not afraid to push the fashion envelope!
    Vogue should be ashamed of themselves for not promoting more diversity!

  2. I don’t think that her dress looked like a tent at all. It was actually very beautiful. I’m so tired of hearing them talk about her weight. Like her mom said about the whole Howard Stern comment, yes we can see that she’s a big girl but there is so much more to her than just that. I’d like to see designers make outfits for just her too…because whether they want to face the truth or not, there’s a lot of women that are around Gabby’s size. It’s hard to find cute things to wear. I can’t wait to see Gabby do other movies and ventures so that she can prove these negative people wrong and show them that she’s ready for any and everything!

  3. So they need to use a plus size designer then.vogue just don’t want to change . change is here so they better get use to it.

  4. I have a feeling that her size is only part of the reason. *hint, hint*

  5. Very interesting post!
