No dress, no problem! At least not for Megan Mullally, who admitted at the 2019 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 27 that she went gown shopping on the internet after designers refused to lend her a high-fashion ensemble for the special event.
“I always pick out clothes online and buy my own stuff because first of all, I like it because I can just wear what I want to wear, but also the major designers are not interested in sending me any dresses,” the 60-year-old told Access Hollywood on the red carpet ahead of the 25th annual awards show.
The Bob’s Burgers star, who is hosting this year’s SAG Awards, ultimately chose a black Alexander McQueen gown with gold detail for the red carpet. She tied the look together with a Marni purse, Aquazzura heels, Chanel earrings and vintage rings and bracelets she already owned.
“Alexander McQueen did send two dresses but they didn’t work out, but this is an Alexander McQueen dress that I bought online,” the brunette beauty admitted while walking the carpet on Sunday night. “I said I am literally hosting. There is a 100 percent chance that I will be on camera. But people were like, ‘No, no thanks.'” Poor thing!
Megan, who opted for a dazzling burnt orange sequined gown for her opening monologue, said that she wouldn’t let the little fashion hiccup rain on her parade. “That’s ok. I think it’s funny but I think it’s interesting for people to know that because I think everybody in the general public thinks well everybody is getting dresses thrown at them left and right, but that’s not actually the case,” Megan explained.
Sadly enough, the Will & Grace actress know she isn’t the only star who’s been denied a dress fitting by high-end designers during awards season. “I think that’s s–t!” Megan exclaimed. “I don’t like it. If you’re not the right age or not the right size or not the right level of coolness or whatever it is, I mean I think it should be a little more egalitarian. But I’m not bitter about it at all. I’m actually glad I don’t have to deal with a lot of different personalities. I can just go online and be like, ‘I like that one!'”
