According to a series of stylists TIMING played a key part in Leslie’s struggle.
Stylists say since Leslie isn’t a sample size (a.k.a SKINNY AS HELL) she should have contacted designers months in advance to request a dress.
The Hollywood Reporter reports:
“She should have known four to five months ago the date of premiere, and said, ‘I’m not a sample size, I need to go to designers early or buy myself a dress.’ Don’t be blaming designers and saying they don’t like you,” says Jessica Paster, whose clients include Emily Blunt and Nia Vardalos.
Stylists I talked to estimated that the 6-foot stunner is probably not a sample size, meaning a runway model size 4, but rather a size 8 or 10, and that could be part of her frustration. But not because of any size bias.
“It’s just pure economics,” says The Hollywood Reporter power stylist Jeanne Yang. “People have this belief that showrooms and designers have racks and racks of clothing in all sizes. They don’t.”
Hmmmm….what do YOU think??? Was Leslie in the wrong for calling out the stylists???WENN
