Musician Bebe Rexha isn’t letting critics stop her from making a fashion statement.
On February 10, the nominated singer arrived to the 2019 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles wearing a voluminous red ball gown.
The musician’s halter-style dress was designed by Monsoori, according to People. The statement gown features a plunging neckline and a skirt comprised of multiple tiers of ruffles.
She accessorized with diamond jewels from David Morris, and wore Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
In the weeks leading up the event, Rexha posted a video on her Instagram saying that “a lot of [designers] do not want to dress me because I’m too big. Literally, I’m too big.”
“If a size 6-8 is too big, then I don’t know what to tell you,” she continued. “Then I don’t want to wear your f—ing dresses. Cause that’s crazy.”
Ahead of the show, Rexha spoke to Ryan Seacrest, saying that some designers who have never dressed her before, including Jeremy Scott, Christian Siriano, and Karl Lagerfeld, have since expressed interest in working with her.
Rexha also said that some of the designers who originally turned her down changed their mind after she released her video.
“I mean, I’m okay. I don’t get angry at people,” Rexha told Seacrest. “I just want to wear people and work with people who love me for me.”
