Melissa McCarthy has really hit her stride, and is getting major attention for her work as an actress. Typically, when an actress is the next big thing in Hollywood, designers flock to them and practically beg to dress them for all of their red carpet moments. In a recent interview for Redbook, Melissa talks about her struggle to find designers willing to dress her, and how it’s inspired her to design her own plus size clothing line.
“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.”
I know that I’m certainly interested to see what kind of clothes Melissa will be producing! My hope is that there will be affordable pieces. I’d love to be able to support her and her line. I wish her all the success in the world. I hope the designers that turned her down have since eaten their words.
