Gabby Sidibe Wears Sydney's Closet Again!

Celebrity sighting! We're honored and flattered that actress Gabourey Sidibe again selected a sexy cocktail dress from Sydney's Closet Signature Collection to wear when she stepped out for a big night in Hollywood .This time Gabby looked so summer fresh and happy smiling for the cameras in our Ameila satin dress in apricot at the press party to premiere the new tv series "The Big C". Gabby plays a hard-to-handle student whose teacher, actress Laura Linney, is fighting stage four cancer.

It was just over a month ago that Gabby wore another cocktail dress from Sydney's Closet Signature Collection to the BET Awards!

Cattin' Around on the Set

Our friend and fan Catherine Schuller dropped in on the set of our NYC photo shoot with her camera man to get a sneak peek at our Spring 2010 collection for her Cattin' Around series. We took one look at the gorgeous blonde with fabulous curves and wisked her off to hair and makeup so she could model our new collection of Mother of the Bride dresses in plus sizes. Good thing it wasn't a real wedding. Catherine would have upstaged the bride she looked so glam - especially in the champagne lace mock two-piece with long sleeves!

Actress Phyllis Smith Shops at Sydney's Closet

Thanks to actress Phyllis Smith from "The Office" for shopping with us today at our St. Louis store. Phyllis, in town for a short trip to see family, left a very happy customer with two fabulous frocks she 'll wear this fall on the Hollywood party scene.
This is the second time we had the honor of personally helping Phyllis in our flagship store. Last year Phyllis looked very glam on the red-carpet at the Emmy Awards wearing a silver metallic evening gown from Sydney's Closet.

Gabby Sidibe in Sydney's Closet
on the Red Carpet

Fashion Coup! Actress Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe opted for "Good Times Roll", a sexy cocktail dress from Sydney's Closet Signature Collection (SCSC) when she stepped out on the red-carpet at the 2010 BET Awards after bash at a trendy Beverly Hills restaurant. The original Empire A-line design, in waves of purple, cream and black satin, makes a bold fashion statement perfect for a young, hip actress to look very glam for a big Hollywood night out! Top designers nationwide compete to dress the talented star of the award-winning film "Precious". So Sydney's Closet considers it a real honor that Ms. Sidibe selected an original SCSC design for such an important event!
