Designers refuse to dress Melissa McCarthy. Idiot designers.

Well this is some stupid, unfair bullshit.

Hilarious, talented, excellent actress Melissa McCarthy has just said that high-profile designers refuse to dress her for events. Because of her size.

Never mind that she’s currently a bankable, successful star with guaranteed red carpet presence. Never mind that she could give any designer worldwide coverage any time she stepped out in their designs.

Melissa McCarthy doesn’t have Barbie proportions, so she’s basically ignored by the fashion houses dressing all of Hollywood.

As we said? Total. Bullshit.

Melissa told Redbook magazine:

“Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no.”


She appears on the cover of Redbook this month, talking about how she keeps her marriage strong and why she’s started her own plus-size clothing line.


Here’s a little more of what she had to say on that topic:

I don’t understand why if you’re a certain size, designers think your taste level goes down and you have less money to spend. The quality and construction is often so bad. Finding a great t-shirt or a great cigarette pant in a good fabric is next to impossible. Plus-size clothes are often really cheap and either look young or incredibly old.

Melissa? If by some chance you’re listening… We think you’re brilliant. We will buy your clothes. We will narrow our eyes and wag our fingers in the general direction of any fashion designer stupid enough not to chase you down the street asking to dress you.  


Melissa McCarthy is married to the man who played the air marshall she seduced in the movie Bridesmaids. Makes that sandwich porn scene they did together as the credits rolled a little bit less awkward now that we now that… Here’s evidence of their outrageous cuteness, via Twitter.

SO GOOD, right?

So. Good.
