Once you've MADE IT, people stop harassing you about your size, right? Wrong. MELISSA MCCARTHY learned a few years ago that it never ends, when she had trouble finding a designer who'd make her an Oscar dress.
It inspired her to start her own plus-size clothing line. She tells "Redbook" magazine, quote, "When I go shopping, most of the time I'm disappointed.
"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."
In case you care, the designer who finally took the job was Daniela Kurrle . . . And she's made several dresses for Melissa since.
