Do you think celebrities always have tons of designer clothes available that brands send them for free? It is not always so. And some of the stars of the brand simply refuse to provide their clothes.
It's hard to believe today, when Victoria Beckham is an acknowledged style icon and one of the most successful designers, but in the days of the Spice Girls her name (then still Adams) was synonymous with vulgarity and bad taste. Karl Lagerfeld instructed his subordinates not to send anything to “this terrible woman” because he didn’t want the public to see Victoria in Chanel clothes. However, he could do nothing about the fact that Miss Adams bought bags with her own money. However, over time, when Victoria's taste became clearly better, nothing prevented Lagerfeld and Mrs. Beckham from successfully communicating and even working on joint photo projects.
Beyoncé faced rejection by fashion brands early in her career. “When we first became popular as Destiny's Child, we were constantly turned down by luxury brands. Nobody wanted to dress black curvy girls from the provinces,”she said in one of her interviews. Today, every fashion designer will be happy if a singer pays attention to his brand.
Beyoncé and other stars who don't communicate with their parents
The singer's father Beyoncé constantly offended her mother, Tina Knowles. Everyone around him knew about the man's betrayal. In 2009, it became known that the man had a child on the side. Tina Knowles filed for divorce, which was finalized in 2011. Beyoncé officially announced that her father no longer represents her business interests and stopped all communication with him.
Now Kim Kardashian is a coveted client of top fashion houses. But not so long ago, in 2013, these same brands responded with a refusal to a request to dress the heroine of a reality show for shooting in Elle magazine. The stylist Nicola Formichetti, who worked on the shooting, has repeatedly told in interviews how many rejections he received from these "fashion-snobs" who believed that Kim was simply unworthy to appear in the frame in their clothes.
Singer Bebe Rexa faced the fact that designers refused to provide her with things, citing the fact that her hips were too wide. True, she was lucky: after an indignant post on Twitter that no one wanted to dress her "big ass", the girl received many offers from lesser known, but no less talented designers.
When Melissa McCarthy received her first Oscar nomination, she was surprised to find herself empty-handed before the ceremony: brands simply did not have dresses in her size. "I made requests to designers, but everyone refused me." After this situation, the actress stopped relying on fashion brands and for the Emmy ceremony she came up with a dress for herself. And then she created the Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line, designed for girls of all sizes. “Just because you wear a large size doesn’t mean you don’t like fashion and dresses,” Melissa said in an interview on the launch of the brand.
