*Academy Award nominee Gabourey Sidibe has been the object of a war among fashion designers looking to get their dresses on the 26-year-old breakout star.
“We’ve been offered dresses by all these huge designers,” her stylist Linda Medvene told USA Today.
But a dress decision has already been made — she will be donning a Marchesa gown on Oscar night.
“It’s been quite easy,” Medvene said of styling the Best Actress nominee. “I have such good relationships with people and they’re madly in love with Gabby. Everyone wants to dress her. Kevan Hall has dressed her. David Meister has dressed her.”
Medvene says Gabourey’s full-figured size hasn’t affected the dress selection process.
“Working with Gabby has been so easy because she’s so comfortable with who she is, in her skin,” her stylist said.
