Gabourey Sidibe + Dakota Fanning = V Magazine’s Size Issue

January 9, 2010

V Magazine’s upcoming “size issue” – an issue dedicated to presenting a more diverse representation of beauty – will have two cover girls.

Images leaked to aGEnT sMItH FiLEs to reveal not one, but two covers for the upcoming issue: one that features The Runaways’ Dakota Fanning, and the other featuring Gabourey Sidibe of Precious.

While the juxtaposition of the two acclaimed young actresses is interesting, the fact that consumers will have two very different representations of beauty to choose from at the newsstand sets up a competitive angle to the whole thing. It doesn’t help that one of the editorials within features a skinny model (Jacquelyn Jablonski) and a “plus size” model (Crystal Renn) facing off in the same clothes.
