Michael Costello says that he was the victim of some severe bullying by Chrissy Teigen, but it looks like he’s got some explaining to do himself. That’s because British pop star Leona Lewis claims that the Project Runway alum refused to dress her for a 2014 charity fashion show because of her size. Here’s what she has to say.
Michael Costello recently revealed that he was blacklisted in the fashion industry by Chrissy Teigen for years and that things got so bad for him that he was experiencing suicidal thoughts.
Leona claims that Michael Costello was upset that she wasn’t a ‘sample size’ and he refused to alter her dress and then apparently ghosted her right before the charity fashion show. Leona ended up not walking in the show and she says that the incident made her feel awful about her body.
Leona Lewis Accuses Michael Costello Of Bullying: Fashion Designer Refused To Dress Singer?
“When I got to my fitting I was made to feel very awkward and uncomfortable as the dress was a sample size and he/his team clearly did not want to alter it to fit me,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.
“This came as a total surprise because weeks prior I was told that they would make the dress work for me. At the next fitting, the night before the show, with no explanation at all, Michael refused to turn up. He no longer wanted to dress me and he abandoned his commitments to me and the show which made me well aware that I wasn’t the body type required.”
Leona went on to say that the incident left her embarrassed and deeply hurt.
“Because I didn’t look like a model size, I was not permitted to walk in his dress,” she wrote. “I had to sit in the audience and was asked by press why I didn’t walk in the show. I remember having to come up with excuses as I was so humiliated by it all.”
For his part, Michael Costello has reached out to Leona Lewis and says that he wants to apologize to her, especially if there was a misunderstanding between them. So far Leona has not made any additional comments about the matter.
