Ashley Graham Skipped Last Year’s Met Gala Because Fashion Designers Wouldn’t Dress Her

This is why I hate everyone.

Ashley Graham is gorgeous. And, by human standards, she is by no means overweight or even plus size. However, in the modeling and fashion world, Ashley Graham is apparently too big to dress.

In an interview with New York magazine, Graham said that she had to miss the 2016 Met Gala designer didn’t want to dress her. But this time, it wasn’t about her size.

Graham said,

“I couldn’t get a designer to dress me. You can’t just show up in jeans and a T-shirt.”

Graham tells New York that it wasn’t about her size. However, no designer would dress her because she didn’t have the right connections with designers at the time and there wasn’t enough time to get a custom piece made.

But in any case, I’m sure if the fashion industry saw a smaller size, they’d put something together.

Luckily, at this year’s Met Gala this past May, things were a lot different.

Graham was on the red carpet in a stunning H&M couture gown.

Graham said,

“Rihanna said I looked ‘hot as fuck.’ I had no idea what to say to her. I was just like, ‘You slay every Met, Rihanna!’”
