Melissa McCarthy Started a Plus-Size Clothing Line Because Nobody Would Dress Her for the Oscars

Jun 05, 2014

Shame on you, Hollywood designers who refused to dress Melissa McCarthy! The Bridesmaids star recently revealed in an interview with Redbook that she went ahead with her own plus-size clothing line because when she asked fashion designers to dress her for the Oscars, they all said no.

"When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed," the star told Redbook. "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."

Names! We want names! Who would dare turn down Melissa McCarthy?

But if that kind of short-sightedness on the part of designers means we will have another influential woman in the fashion industry, it'll be a win for everyone in the end. Plus we can't way to see what McCarthy comes up with.
