Vogue Reportedly Does Not Want Gabourey Sidibe

Gabourey Sidibe

The reason is none other than the 'Precious' actress' weight which allegedly has been used as a joke around the house.

Gabourey Sidibe is still facing more criticism about her weight and this time it allegedly comes from fashion magazine Vogue. According to PopEater, the high-couture publication which often displays size-zero models does not want the Oscar-nominated actress to grace its cover.

"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," a Vogue insider told PopEater. "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."

Vogue has made no comment regarding this. In May last year, chief editor Anna Wintour slammed America's weight obsession. "There's such an epidemic of obesity in the United States, and for some reason, everybody focuses on anorexia," Wintour said. "We need to spend money, time and education on teaching people to eat, exercise and take care of themselves in a healthier way. It [has gotten people] provoked, which is really the point."

This is not the first time Sidibe is snubbed from magazine cover. Vanity Fair was criticized for leaving out the actress from its Rising Young Hollywood edition that presented movie actresses such as Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska and Amanda Seyfried.

    These comments made by Vogue employees about Gabourey Sidibe whether true or false, just validates the discriminatory nature of the fashion industry. For a high profile magazine to take this position should be ashamed.Not all women can be "walking coat-hangers" for one of kind , size 0 , sample fashions for these models to saunter around in. Yes Obesity is almost pandemic in America, and women no matter what race are impacted by it. To be thin is more about genetics than overeating. For a industry embraces anorexia and bulimics, how is that more suitable for the girls who model? Gabourey and millions of other women who are obese are doing the best they can to cope with their situation. They are not knocking at Vogue's door to be in the that magazine. They are trying live their lives the best way the can. They don't need to hear comments from pompous-ass bigots who think they are right.Why don't we talk about the rail thin women who are doing everything they can to stay that way just to have a job as a model.They have health concerns too, and they are being exploited.But because they look so good in high fashion garments, let's ignore their health and sell clothes and put the them in Vogue magazine. Whopee!Hope Vogue gets sued for the comments they make about Gabourey and anyone else they think is not acceptable to be in their fashion rag.
