18 Celebrities Who Had Designers Refuse To Dress Them Due To Their Body Size


18 Celebrities Who Had Designers Refuse To Dress Them Due To Their Body Size

Designers – Wake up and stop dreaming all women should be a size 0!

It’s difficult to believe that fashion stylists in 2019 are still considering anything bigger than a Size two undeserving of wearing an original designer outfit.

With all body types and figures expected to be appreciated and celebrated, it would be a lot easier if designers start making their clothes in more sizes, instead of asking women to change who they are.

Happyhumanity understands how saddening it can be for many and has compiled celebs who have as well experienced designers refusing to dress them due to their body size.

#1 Bebe Rexha

Bebe Rexha shaded some designers for declining to dress her for the 2019 Grammys. Fortunately, Designer Monsoori did the magic and Bebe stormed the Red Carpet looking all gorgeous in a red gown.

She shared her anger in an Instagram Video

‘I had my team hit out a lot of designers and a lot of them do not want to dress me  for the Grammys because I am too big.’ Bebe explained

She added: If a size 6 or 8 is too big, then I don’t know what to tell you and I don’t want to wear your expletive dress.

Bebe’s Video gingered actress Mayim Bialik and in turn, she also commented

Now, she has become one of the biggest superstars of our time and that’s definitely a joke on them.

#3 Ashley Graham

Designers refused to lend Ashley a dress because she was tagged ‘Not In Sample Range.’ But fortunately, Coach stepped up and saved Ashley with a stunning gown that fit her stunningly.

It appears absurd that a model has a hard time finding a designer to give her a dress. It shouldn’t be a problem.

#4 Hayden Panettiere
