This past Sunday, the Golden Globes saw many beautiful women gracing the red carpet, some titled best dressed of the evening, some on lists of another name. Surely in a few months people will forget who was wearing Dior or what colour Amy Adams wore, but something we shouldn’t ignore is the blatant body shaming of actress Gabourey Sidibe. Some twitter comments read:

“Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper,”

“I get it Gabourey Sidibe you tried to do the ‘hour-glass’ look in that dress. You just missed it about 10 hours,”

“Bye!!! She looks like a condom.”

These comments are not only disrespectful and rude, they also lack class and humour, something Gabourey personified in her twitter response:

“To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK.”

The reality of body shaming as a socially accepted ‘thing’ makes fashion seem much less accepting than it is. Fashion is an art form, and the fact that society believes women of certain shapes or sizes should be excluded from the artistic experience is not only wrong, but it is also quite dreadful. We live in a society filled with women of different shapes and sizes, none who should be shamed for participating in the artistic expression of fashion.
