AceShowbiz –Bebe Rexha defied designers who once refused to dress her as she enjoyed a Cinderella moment at the Grammys.
The singer wowed on the red carpet ahead of the awards ceremony on Sunday, February 10, in a stunning red gown designed by Jeremy Scott of Moschino after revealing designers had refused to dress her due to her size.
Last month (January 2019) the 29-year-old posted a video on Instagram, in which she shared her struggle to find an outfit for the ceremony.
“A lot of times artists will go and talk to designers, and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet… I had my team hit out a lot of designers, and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big,” she said. “If a size 6/8 is too big then, I don’t know what to tell you. Then I don’t want to wear your f**king dresses… To all the people that said that I’m thick… f**k you, I don’t want to wear your f**king dresses.”
The video led to an outpouring of support from fans and stars alike – something the star did not expect.
“It’s been amazing…,” she said. “I just did the video because I was really heartbroken and it bummed me,” she told Ryan Seacrest on E!’s Live from the Red Carpet show. “They said I was too big or fat and I love my body and I just want other girls to love their bodies.”
