The young plus size stars could take a note from Monique on their red carpet looks. Monique walked on the red carpet flawlessly (except for disapproval of showing hairy legs). She had perfect hair, the perfect dress, perfect makeup, and the perfect accessories. Both Gabourey and Amber left much to be desired on the red carpet with "ho hum/blah" dresses that made them look much older than they are and neither of them picked the best dress for their body types.
I personally hated this particular green on Gabourey. It just did not contrast well with her skin color. Also, the fact that she has a short neck the overabundance of hair and the necklace seemed to make her appear as if she doesnt have a neck. It was also pointed out to me that you could visibly see underarm sweat stains on this dress....EEK!
