Top designers are lining up to dress singer Bebe Rexha for the Grammy Awards after she slammed fashionistas for discriminating against her.
The Meant to Be hitmaker took to social media to vent on Monday, accusing fashion leaders of refusing to take her on as a client for music’s big night next month (Feb19), because she’s “too big”.
“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,” Bebe said in an Instagram video, which has now gone viral. “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…”
But now the tides have turned and beautiful Bebe has been inundated with offers.
Designer August Getty, who boasts Zendaya and Rachel McAdams among his past red carpet clients, is ready to draw up a look for the star, stating, “You are beautiful! Every woman of every size is beautiful! Just let me know when I should start sketching.”
Tanya Taylor, a favourite of Olivia Munn and Lena Dunham for her floral dresses, is also eager, writing: “Bebe – we would LOVE to design something custom for you!! Can we discuss??”
Bebe also has the chance to work with veteran designer Elizabeth Kennedy, one of Mindy Kaling’s regular red carpet go-tos.
“I’d love to make you a dress for the Grammys!” she gushed in the comments section below Bebe’s video. “I’m a size 8 too, and yes it is a beautiful size.”
Bebe has yet to announce who she will wearing at The 61st Grammy Awards, which take place in Los Angeles on 10 February (19).
