Melissa McCarthy has revealed designers refused to make a dress in her size for the Oscar awards in 2012.
The Bridesmaids star, who has just created a line of plus-size clothing for women, admits a number of high-profile designers snubbed her request for the glamorous event.
"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," the star said in the July issue of Redbook.
Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage." The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, haven't let their high level of fame change their relationship because the most important thing to them is their two daughters Vivian, seven, and Georgette, four.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt must think that couples who dress together are those who stay together...
The A-list couple were spotted on the BAFTA red carpet today wearing tuxes. While Angie's was clearly more suited for feminine wear (plunging neckline, 3/4 sleeves, see-through blouse, and undone bowtie hanging around her neck), Brad opted for a fairly traditional look. Is their matching formal wear adorably and fashionably cute or just downright annoying?

Kristen Stewart is still embarrassed about an outfit she wore when she was 11.
The Snow White and the Huntsman star still smarts when she thinks about her styling at the premiere of 2002's Panic Room - one of her early movies - which consisted of a long black trench coat over a green dress and blocky trainers.
"My biggest fashion regret? I think the pictures that they took at the premiere of Panic Room. It's like a popular image to show from when I was younger, you know, like, 'She was a kid!' And I look at that and I'm like, 'Oh... my... gosh.' It shouldn't be embarrassing because I was so young. But it doesn't even matter how young you are, you're just so, so embarrassed," she said.
Kristen, now 23, admits she was "completely goofy" as a child, and even hates her hair in the pictures. "I had like these baby hairs and I was being weird about them, so I was like, 'I'm just gonna cut them off.' And I had like these little things like poking out from under my hair and behind my ears, and a ridiculous outfit. I did not know how to get dressed up at that age at all, I didn't even know what I liked. I was just like completely... a goofy kid," she added.
One of Beyonce's biggest fans has offered to buy the dress she wore to the Grammy Awards for $250,000.
The "XO" hitmaker, who caused controversy with her steamy performance at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night, wore a white and sheer gown by Project Runway designer Michael Costello on the red carpet and he is currently debating whether to sell the delicate ensemble.
"There's a guy who's an obsessive Beyonce fan who offered us $250,000 for the dress. It's crazy. I'm debating. I want to keep it! It's a dream come true," he told People.com.
Michael made six dresses for the 32-year-old star for the event and previously admitted he was wowed by her "tiny, amazing" body. The blonde beauty, who is married to rapper Jay Z with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, reportedly dropped 70 pounds in recent months after following a largely vegetarian diet. Once known for her curvy figure, Beyonce is now said to be a size 2.
+ Just as Christian Louboutins are known for their red heels, Sarah Jessica Parker is setting her own shoe trademark: grosgrain ribbons stitched to the back of the heels. The Sex and the City actress - who made Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo household names - talks freely about the inspiration and production of her own shoe collection (which Blahnik had a hand in designing himself!).
+ Despite being the latest Pantene Pro-V spokesmodel, Gisele Bundchen admits that her hair is constantly brushed by other people in her career that she doesn't even own a hairbrush. So, ladies: brushes are so passé these days.

Gabourey Sidibe has dismissed criticism of her appearance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
The plus-sized actress - who shot to fame with her Oscar-nominated lead role in 2009 film Precious - was subjected to mean comments about her weight on Twitter after walking the red carpet at the Hollywood awards ceremony, but she was able to laugh at her critics.
"To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK [sic]," she wrote on her Twitter.
The 30-year-old star - who sported a floor-length silver gown to the Golden Globes - was praised for her witty response to the criticism, with nearly 25,000 people retweeting her message. "Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you! #notmyjetthough #imnotthatfancy [sic]," she added.
Yes, you sadly read that title correctly: Jennifer Lawrence has come out and said that what was probably her best The Hunger Games: Catching Fire red carpet look was not her favorite!
"I think any time a girl has to show her thighs it's never going to be her favorite look," she said on Good Morning America.
Although I usually eat up Lawrence's quotes, I'm still reeling from this one, considering she looked nothing but breathtaking and badass all at the same time in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Perhaps because she took a moment to realize that the dress was amazing, as she quickly clarified: "I loved it, I loved the dress -- if someone else wore it. It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it]."
Oh say it isn't so - our great defender of body positivity has let societal body pressures get to her when it came to this particular red carpet look. Let's hope she realizes that she's beautiful no matter what her thighs are and that she can definitely pull any gorgeous frock off with her adorable pixie cut!

While the Billboard Music Awards are no Met Gala, one would hope that the celebrities would at least aspire to such style for the event. Judging from the various frocks that graced Billboard's blue carpet, however, the musically-inclined celebs failed to put much effort into this awards show. Whether it was the Las Vegas heat or some overextended stylists (between the Met Gala, Cannes, and this, who can blame them?), the fashion at the Billboard Music Awards fell short with a few good looks and way too many shine-inducing materials.
The Good: American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, known for her colorful and over-the-top costumes, scaled back her look by opting for a red number which made her cleavage take center stage and yet still managed to look classy.
Country pop singer Shania Twain showed up in a silver-white Pavoni by Mikael D gown looking like a modern-day Greek goddess.
Hayden Panettiere - who currently stars in the country music television drama Nashville - opted for black like many others in attendance, but her simple, sleek floor-length dress was the best of them all.

Eva Longoria suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival. The Desperate Housewives star accidentally revealed much more than she bargained for while walking the red carpet at the Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian) film screening on Saturday night.
Eva, who looked stunning in a pastel green gown complete with a plunging side-split, hitched up her dress to avoid the puddles, flashing much more than just her legs in the process - since she had decided to go commando. The 38-year-old actress appeared unaware of the incident and was happy to pose for the cameras in the rain.
She later enthused on her Twitter page, "My favorite red carpet of the whole year!"
Eva also shared a series of snaps of her fellow celebrity L'Oreal beauty ambassadors Jane Fonda, Cheryl Cole, Megan Gale and Doutzen Kroes, who all braved the bad weather for the annual film festival in the South of France.
