Gabourey Sidibe is a (Much Lighter) Elle Cover Girl

In light of the ELLE Magazine cover controversy we thought we'd share with you images of Gabourey Sidibe at her best...in other magazines. Sidibe draws strong responses of all sorts from people--seems like everyone has a comment on her look. At Colorlines.com, we just love seeing her shine. And hey, Gabourey, if you ever wanna pose for Colorlines, just let us know!
