This could be just the break the folks at Sealed with a Kiss Designs, also known as SWAK, had been looking for. It appears actress Gabourey Sidibe is a fan of their's and has been seen out-and-about in their clothing more than once. The LA Times reports the star of "Precious" wore SWAK's "Giselle" dress to an industry function last week. SWAK's owner says Sidibe’s stylist also dropped in this week t see more of the trendy styles.
Of course we had to pop over to SWAK to check out the latest dress designs and quite a few popped out at us.
You can see more of SWAK's styles here.

Hello, Curvies! By now, you've probably heard that highly anticipated copies of V Magazine's "Size" Issue are hitting store shelves this month. By now, we also know that a plus-size model does not usually mean a plus-size woman. As MSNBC points out this week, the average American woman is considered to be a size 14 - and around 41 percent of those are a larger size. But so far the campaign is getting a positive reception (or at least well-wishes) and we think the pictures released so far are truly gorgeous. The poses range from semi-nude to fully dressed. V's editor-in-chief says, "Big, little, pint-size, plus-size — every body is beautiful. This issue is out to prove it." And let's just be honest: Crystal Renn, who is prominently featured, transcends "size-ism". But what do you think about the photos? Are layouts like this a step in the right direction? Tell us after the jump. Find more pictures at Models.com
