PRECIOUS

The name of everyones lips at the moment is actress Gabourey Sidibe, who stars in the years hottest film, Precious. In 1987, obese, illiterate, black 16-year-old Claireece Precious Jones (referred to by her middle name) lives in the New York City neighborhood of Harlem with her dysfunctional mother, Mary. She has been impregnated twice by her father, Carl, and suffers long term physical, mental and sexual abuse from her unemployed mother. The family resides in a Section 8 tenement and subsists on welfare. Her first child, known only as “Mongo” (short for “Mongoloid”), has Down syndrome and is being cared for by Precious’s grandmother. The film is based on the 1996 book, Sapphire.

I’ve posted the fabuous outfit Gabourey wore to this year SAG awards, a floor length electric purple gown that looked fabulous against her skin tone and complimented her figure perfectly.
