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.
