ALL SMILES: Gabourey Sidibe’s campaign for Lane Bryant

A HUMBLED Gabourey Sidibe shared billboard campaign for fashion brand Lane Bryant yesterday (Oct 20).

The Empire star, who along with fellow actress Danielle Brooks, star in the brand’s powerfully simple campaign, aptly titled #ThisBody Is Made To Shine.

The point of the campaign, according to a release from the brand, is to “spotlight what it means to unapologetically celebrate themselves in spite of any adverse feelings or feedback.”

“I’m STILL not over this.,” Gabourey wrote on Twitter. “Who knows how many subway posters I walked by hoping to one day feel as beautiful as the faces I passed.”
