This is how much it costs to walk the red carpet if you’re not a size 2
Nope. Just, nope.
Rachel Bloom, the star ofCrazy Ex-Girlfriend, may have given us the anthemSexy Getting Ready Songbut it turns out that getting ready for special events costs her a pretty penny. She revealed that when you’re not a size 0 or 2 in Hollywood, you wind up shelling out way more money for fancy red carpet events – and it all comes down to the fact that many fashion houses won’t dress you.
In an interview withWealthSimple, Rachel explained, ‘What also has become apparent when I have to get clothes for these events is that I have a normal body. A lot of fashion houses are reluctant to lend clothes that aren’t in the sample sizes of 0 and 2, so it’s getting harder and harder for me to find clothes without buying them. That’s the whole problem with the fashion industry: My body size is literally normal and healthy, but when you put me next to a model, I look obese.’
Other fuller figured women in the industry have previously spoken out about the issue and more recently, plus-sized model Ashley Graham revealed that she actually had to skip the Met Gala last year because designers wouldn’t dress her. This year however, she was able to attend and H&M stepped in with a jaw-dropping cream and crimson creation for her.
Rachel explained that she ends up having to shoulder the costs of her occasion outfits, which can reach up to USD00 for important events.
She said, ‘I have occasionally bought designer dresses and designer shoes. Your typical nice designer dresses, at least the kind of stuff that I wear for events, can range from 0 to ,000, and you want to wear a different outfit for every event because it’s a whole red carpet thing. It’s a lot of dresses. I guess it’s all part of the job. I guess if everything changes, I can always resell them.’
However the red carpet’s not just about the dress you’re wearing – things like hair and makeup come into it too. While she admits that the studio and network generally spot her beauty costs for big events, she will regularly have to shell out for a professional hair and makeup artists for the things they won’t cover and that costs as much as 0 a pop.
