New Look For Raven Simone

article 0 0CA8C99E000005DC 223 468x382 New Look For Raven Simone

Former Disney star Raven Simone, who once contently called herself “thick and fabulous,” showed off a decidedly slimmer look at Wednesday’s People’s Choice Awards, sporting a cleavage-bearing, all-black leather ensemble with thigh-high Louboutin boots.

However, Symoné says she was never one to consider herself unattractive when she was still heavy.

“I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did,” she tells People. “So, whatever.”

If anything, Symoné, who just shot an ABC Family pilot called “The Great State of Georgia,” is not yet entirely comfortable with her new look.

“Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me,” she says. “I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”

Either way, the onetime “That’s So Raven” star says she’s breathing a sigh of relief over no longer having to deal with her show — the strain of which, she says, contributed to her weight gain.

“That’s what stress does to you,” Symoné says. “I’ve been not stressing. I’ve been in my own house, decorating and finding hobbies.”

    Raven, I’ve followed your career since the “Cosby’s”. You are a gifted, funny, exclusively-talented person. I congratulate you and your courage having to endure all the criticism and stress put on you. I believed you looked just fine the way you were. All this unnecessary negative gossip concerning your appearance during the years was definitely uncalled for. My hats off to you on your “new look”, inside, you have always been a winner in my eyes.
