  • Rexha is up for Best new Artists at the Grammy’s this year but claims in her Instagram video that her team reached out to a bunch of designers who all refused to dress her
  • Luckily, after posting her rant to social media, several designers have come forward saying they’d love to dress the singer
  • For the record, this isn’t new, Megan Mullally from Will & Grace posted that she’ll be buying her dress off the rack despite HOSTING the SAG Awards and definitely being on camera—Leslie Jones from SNL also voiced the same frustrations when she couldn’t find anyone to dress her for the Ghostbusters premiere (in the end Christian Siriano stepped up to the plate)
