Savannah Chrisley is getting sweet revenge with a guns-blazing Instagram post directed at designer Michael Costello. The “Chrisley Knows Best” star updated her account on Sunday with a venom post directed at the man who has recently made headlines for accusing 23-year-old makeup mogul Kylie Jenner of giving zero credit to lesser-known designers.
If you need a refresh, “Project Runway” designer Costello blasted Kylie after she tagged luxury French designer Balmain recently – she was then accused of not acknowledging smaller designers. “Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent has since claimed that Costello wouldn’t kit her out for her wedding because she wasn’t a big enough name. Savannah just joined in.
The storm started last week, when Kylie posted sizzling 23rd birthday snaps of herself in Balmain. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star thanked the brand’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing, writing:
“Thank you my love @olivierrousteing for the most perfect bday dress.”
Costello, 37, then swooped in on social media to blast the Kylie Cosmetics CEO for her repeated habit of not tagging designers in a giant rant. With La La Kent also firing shots at Costello, it looks like he’s got fresh work cut out as 23-year-old Savannah weighs in.
Savannah’s Sunday Instagram update came as a joint red carpet photo with 52-year-old dad Todd. The SASSY cosmetics founder was, indeed, looking sassy in a woven black dress, but this was about the caption.
Speaking to her 2.1 million followers, the Georgia-born star opened: “Y’all… Designer Michael Costello is currently bashing @kyliejenner for not giving credit to certain designers.”
She then mentioned Bravo face Lala, writing: “And then @lalakent came forward saying Michael refused to dress her because she wasn’t “famous enough.”
Then it got super aggressive.
Savannah then straight-up accused Costello of doing the same thing to her.
“And HE DID THE SAME THING TO ME FOR AN NBC EVENT!! Wouldn’t dress me because I just wasn’t famous enough for him. It’s truly so sad. But then @waltercollection dressed me in this gorgeous design and made me feel so much better!! ????,” she continued.
Lala, meanwhile, had claimed that Costello was doing “the same sh-t as Kylie” as she accused him of having “never” gotten back to her. Savannah’s post today quickly gained comments.
Savannah’s fans, who have largely focused on her calling off her engagement from Nic Kerdiles this summer, seemed to back her. One asked who the heck Michael Costello even is, with another writing:
“Who needs a famous pretentious designer , when you are so beautiful! You make the clothes not the clothes you!! You could wear a flour sack and make it look gorgeous !! ??????”
Costello appeared on Season 8 of “Project Runway,” and the first season of “Project Runway All Stars.” He has dressed stars including Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Meghan Trainor, also making headlines for offering to dress singer Bebe Rexha after designers called her “too big.”
