Following her starring role in the Oscar tipped movie Precious, Gabourey Sidibe is so high profile right now, it’s about as famous as a girl can get. It’s also awards season chez Hollywood so she has plenty of ritzy events and appearances to make. She’s also 21 stone. And let’s face it, this is not an easy formula for fashion success. So, aside from her custom gowns from the likes of well-known designers like Kevan Jon (Golden Globes) or Pamella Roland (SAGs), what has the 26 year old actress been wearing? Well, turns out Gaby’s need-to-know recommendation is a label called Swak.
The label has some pretty cool styles, including the chic blue Giselle dress (yes, we know) that Gaby wore to the Bafta tea party in LA last week.
The brand’s e-commerce site ships to the UK, we also recommend the Lacey dress in nude, the Sienna (yup) in purple, and Helena (uh-huh) maxi dress.
Meanwhile, Gaby might also be interested in this great news – Asos has now launched Curve – it’s own collection of plus size clothing, with particular OTM jeans and biker jackets. Genius.
And if you’re not able to wear these clothes yourself, maybe forward this link to any of your friends who might be interested? You know they will love you for the info…. [latimes]
