It’s hard to buy for the red carpet when you aren’t a sample size!
Bryce Dallas Howard is generally pretty badass. But she’s especially so when she’s calling designers out for not having a normal woman size to wear on the red carpet.
Yesterday, she stepped onto the CriticsÃ¢â¬â¢ Choice Awards red carpet in a plunging Pierre Balmain gown, purchased online for $1,300 from Forward by Elyse Walker, and Howard is PROUD OF IT! She prefers to buy her own dresses rather than rely on a stylist to bring her samples, and here’s why:
Ã¢â¬ÅThatÃ¢â¬â¢s the comfortable way to go through these things,Ã¢â¬Â she says of prepping for big red carpets. Ã¢â¬ÅI alluded to this a little before [at the Golden Globes], but itÃ¢â¬â¢s when youÃ¢â¬â¢re not Ã¢â¬ËsampleÃ¢â¬â¢ size, or when you donÃ¢â¬â¢t have a direct relationship with a designer, or if you donÃ¢â¬â¢t have a lot of notice, those types of size 6 dresses just arenÃ¢â¬â¢t that available that much Ã¢â¬Â¦ So, what I found is that if something is sort of last-minute, or I donÃ¢â¬â¢t have a good relationship with a place, then I go to NeimanÃ¢â¬â¢s, or I get something online.Ã¢â¬Â
Hear that, designers? Bryce always looks amazing, no thanks to Y’ALL! Get some real people sizes avail for the red carpet, PLZ.
