This. Is. Outrageous.
But alas, that was the case for the Bridesmaid star two years ago when she got an Oscar nod for her role in the HIGHlarious flick.
Like many stars, when she found out she was nominated, Melissa had to look for a glamorous red carpet attire and started contacting designers to dress her for the event!
Which then led to the disappointing answer she received.
That incident was essentially the reason why Melissa decided to start a plus-sized clothing line.
"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."
That is so unfortunate to hear!
You would think these people would be scrambling to dress Melissa since she rose to stardom that year!
Despite the fact that the funny woman was turned away by these so called high-level designers, she still managed to look REGAL when she set foot on that red carpet!
