Gabourey Sidibe Makeup Collection In The Works?

Actress Gabourey Sidibe is rumored to have a cosmetic collection in the works after being spotted in makeup maven Bobbi Brown's office, WWD reports. From an article about the party for Annmarie Iverson's new book, "In Fashion" comes this tidbit:

Perhaps the most surprising arrival of the night was "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe, who said she had just finished "The Big C" for Showtime. Her connection to the party was apparently through Bobbi Brown, who had done the actress's makeup for the Golden Globes. There was talk that Sidibe had been in the Bobbi Brown offices that day, discussing the possibility of doing a color cosmetics collection, but no one involved with the company would confirm the report.

We wouldn't be surprised if Sidibe and Brown collaborated after Brown has expressed her affinity for real-looking girls as opposed to stick-thin models. In a recent interview with the L.A. Times about her new beauty book, Brown said, "There's not one model in the book. The girl on the cover was a waitress in our town. A lot of the girls are friends' daughters and I had a high school kid last year, so a lot of his friends were in it. I had three boys, but I watched these girls grow up from the time they were 3 years old, some of them."
