Get The Dress That Works For Everyone
January 7, 2010
On the heels of all the buzz about plus-size models like Crystal Renn in the fashion industry, Gabby Sidibe, the breakout star of the film Precious, graces the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar looking smashing. Contrary to Miley Cyrus, who looked like she aged 10 years on the cover, Sidibe really knows how to dress for her body type in a bright poppy colored Tommy Hilfiger dolman sleeve wrap dress, with precious metal jewels draped over it. The dress is the perfect choice if you don’t feel comfortable in a body conscious dress, as it offers a slouchy arm and forgiving waist:
In the interview, Sidibe mentions people tend to ask her where her confidence came from and she says, “It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps.”
