Apparently a size 10-12 is too big in Hollywood?
Bebe Rexha is taking fashion designers to task for saying she’s “too big” to dress.
The 29-year-old pop star, who’s nominated for best new artist at next month’s Grammys, is having a difficult time finding an outfit for the awards show, and shared her frustration in the form of an Instagram video on Monday.
“So, I finally get nominated at the Grammys and it’s, like, the coolest thing ever. And a lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet,” Rexha said.
“So 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. Literally, I’m too big.
“If a size 6/8 (Australian size 10 to 12) is too big, then I don’t know what to tell you. Then I don’t want to wear your f***ing dresses. ’Cause that’s crazy. You’re saying that all the women in the world that are size 8 (Australian size 12) and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses.
“So all the people who said I’m thick and can’t wear dresses: F**k you, I don’t wanna wear your f***ing dresses.”
The I’m A Mess singer shared a similar sentiment on Instagram last year, declaring herself “size 8 and proud” and explaining that the sample sizes designers typically send celebrities “won’t fit and I won’t change myself to make them fit,” adding, “Work with me and my big fat ass.”
Judging by Leslie Jones’ and Megan Mullally’s similar struggles to find designers willing to dress them for red carpet events, we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before Christian Siriano — who outfitted Rexha for last year’s VMAs and Billboard Music Awards — swoops in for the rescue.
Warning: Explicit language.

Im sorry, I had to get this off my chest. If you don’t like my fashion style or my music that’s one thing. But don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size. Empower women to love their bodies instead of making girls and women feel less then by their size. We are beautiful any size! Small or large! Anddddd My size 8 ass is still going to the Grammys. #LOVEYOURBODY
