Just weeks after revealing that certain unnamed designers wouldn’t dress her for the Grammy Awards because of her size, Bebe Rexha hit the red carpet in a showstopping gown by Monsoori.
The “Meant to Be” singer, who was nominated for two Grammys last night, showed off a plunging red dress with a glamorous tulle tiered skirt from the Middle Eastern label. “I wanted to go for a princess look,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.” Rexha accessorized with a sparkly necklace and drop earrings.
This comes after the 29-year-old took to Instagram to call out designers who wouldn’t dress her for being “too big.” “So I finally get nominated at the Grammys, and it’s like the coolest thing ever,” Rexha, who wears a size 6-8, said in a video. “A lot of times, artists will go and talk to designers, and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet. So I had my team reach out a lot of designers, and a lot of them do not want to dress me because I’m too big.”
She told “ET” last night at the event in Los Angeles that it prompted a handful of major designers to send her possible designs. “I had Karl Lagerfeld, Jeremy Scott, Moschino, Christian Siriano and Michael Costello all send me stuff, and that was really awesome — I really didn’t expect that.”
Rexha also told Ryan Seacrest of her dress search: “I want to have a Cinderella moment. I want [the dress] to be so hard to walk in. I can’t believe that I am finally nominated for a Grammy, two Grammys! For me, this is my Cinderella moment.”
