Gabourey Sidibe & Nikki Blonsky: Front Row Fashion!

Gabourey Sidibe and Nikki Blonsky are all smiles as they arrive at the Onestopplus.com fashion show at Fashion Week held at Lincoln Center in New York City on Wednesday (September 15).

The 27-year-old Big C actress and Nikki, 21, took in the fashion from the front row!

Earlier this month, Gab shared some exciting news on her Facebook page: “Hi! I just filled out my Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences(Oscar) paperwork!” she shared. “I’m officially an Academy member! That means i can vote!!!!! Exciting stuff!”

“I’m feeling very proud and grateful for all of my fans and the complete wonderment of this last year. Not bad for the daughter of a street performer and a cab driver,” Gab continued.

That’s middle America for you.
People complain all the time about skinny actresses/celebs being bad role models for young people especially but noone mentions morbidly obese ones such as these two. I don’t understand why with Sidibe especially people try and act like she’s a great role model because she is comfortable with her body. They’re both unhealthy and dangerously obese- how is that setting a good example for youth instead of eating moderately and regularly exercising?
Blonksy is only 21, I mean come on… look after yourself, have some self respect & self control.

Monster here aaaaa help me

I can’t belive these 2 girls famous , they are like server only

@Lex HARSH! But totally right! I completely agree with on you.

I know, right. It’s so wrong to put these two up there as public figures, and paint the picture that they are good role models just because they aren’t skinny- no, they are morbidly obese. I don’t care what kind of people they are, I just don’t think people should just pick on one side of the weight issue and leave the other unsaid. It’s almost like Gabourey has reaches stardom through sympathy. People criticize overly skinny women for painting an unrealistic image for women, because it is unrealistic to think you can have a figure like that. Maybe that’s why fat people don’t get criticized, we all know how realistic it is that one can become fat, just visit your local fast food joint and drink your favourite soft drink and voile’ – another role model is born.

these two need a row of their own…

Dear Gabourey and Nikki, have some self respect and self control for god’s sake. It’s not about starving but about eating wisely.

So true, Tim. It’s like reverse racism- Celeb sites & media can easily call someone annorexic and “dangerously thin” and when a usually thin starlet puts on weight everyone’s quick to label them as “Curvy” and “Gained some pounds” like it’s so scandalous. But when you have morbidly obese celebs everyone pats them on the back and says well done, what fantastic role models they are being “fuller figured”….It’s like it’s too politically incorrect to publically acknowledge they’re obese.
It just baffles me.

It seems that Nikki has lost a lot of weight. She looks very healthy.

It’s like “Where’s that fat? I don’t see any fat… they look fine to me, let’s tailor make film roles for them. “

@Alaia:

Are you serious? You think she looks healthy? On what planet is she a picture of health?

oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, terrible-terrible-terrible!
these girls have every option of losing weight available with the money they can pay and they obviously JUST DONT CARE about looking good

the worst thing is there still are people who support their position

It’s very plain and simply, neither of these two are healthy. They are both young adults and both are morbidly obese, since when is that okay? They are both at risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis etc. But for some reason, us, the general public are not allowed to make any judgment on these two girls, because Lord behold we may hurt their feelings.
Like girls who are dangerously skinny however, we should never, ever glorify obesity and truthfully, I am disgusted that Elle magazine has decided to put Gabby on their cover. We should be promoting health!

Great discussions going on in here. Thanks for the reads Lex & Tim. ITAWY.

These women are not role models. It’s great that they’re confident, but for children or anybody to look at them and think that’s a healthy lifestyle, is so wrong. These women, whether you like it or not, ARE sick and if they don’t control themselves and try to lose the weight, they WILL be putting themselves in grave danger. Obesity opens doors to many other medical problems.

Jade, I also agree with your post. Hollywood should not be promoting this type of image. It IS dangerous.

not skinny not obese both are not normal ..just the midddle.

I think Gabourey & Nikki couldn’t care less about your advice or comments. No matter what you think, they are famous and rich more than you could be one day. So my point is Why are you still talking about their weight ? It’s their body and no one could tell her how to live and deal with that.
By the way, people will always criticize skinny girl or fat woman, because they love that, they are just jealous.

phew glad I didn’t come in here seeing tons of admiration posts (like a few times) girls love to call these types gorgeous, but all the beautiful actresses and models here get called every ugly name in the book. (go figure) lmao what a relief!

…ahahahahahahahaha

Totally agree with you F. I feel sorry for obese people who DO want to do something about their weight but don’t have the money to support their medical needs. These girls obviously can afford it but clearly don’t see it as a priority. I think that’s pretty ignorant. I’m not saying anything negative about their personalities because I don’t know them but I don’t think it’s right the media plays on the “role model” angle when publicising Gabourey or Nicky.

@ French Girl: Very mature of you. Yes, we’re allll just “jealous”. That’s exactly what it is. [/sarcasm]

Lastly, I believe people on this forum are discussing their weight because that’s what the Comments section is for. Don’t like it, don’t read it. Simple solutions to simple problems. :)

Kate, I believe these women don’t do anything about their weight because they’re told there’s nothing wrong with them. They are banking on their obesity. They’re also made to believe they’re being role models for ‘average’ women in America and around the world who aren’t stick skinny like Victoria Secret models. Confidence is a great thing, but they should not promote this as a healthy lifestyle. Men and women who are this overweight, will suffer from many other medical problems. That’s a fact.

weight watchers next two future stars…

Well said, F. It’s such a tender topic that anyone who admits to even noticing these girls are obese is labelled as cruel, when really it’s cruel to NOT mention it, given the fact that their health is at risk. I hope someone close to these girls- friends, family, managers etc has enough sense to encourage them to shed some pounds. I for one would never encourage my daughters to let it get to that point- there’s a difference between loving and accepting yourself and the self abuse of over-eating, not exercising and putting yourself at serious risk of heart disease/failure among so many other risks. It is our business to have an opinion of these girls when they’re being targeted to teens such as on Elle magazine.
