Melissa McCarthy Couldn’t Get Anyone to Make Her an Oscar Dress

When I read this story last night, my heart broke.

MELISSA MCCARTHY learned a few years ago that if you’re not skinny, it doesn’t matter how famous you are, because she had trouble finding a designer who’d make her an Oscar dress.  An OSCAR DRESS!

It inspired her to start her own plus-size clothing line.  She tells “Redbook” magazine, quote, “When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed.”

“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.”

In case you care, the designer who finally took the job was Daniela Kurrle . . . And she’s made several dresses for Melissa since.

I wish Melissa would have called out, by name, every designer who wouldn’t help her!  We need to know so we can buy, or not buy, accordingly!

Good luck Melissa!  We’ll be watching for your new fashion line for real women!
