The fiercest war in fashion right now isn’t between warring models on the catwalk but instead is focused on two huge reality TV stars calling out a famous designer for allegedly horrible treatment towards women on TV who he has deemed “not famous enough.” The drama kicked off over the weekend when “Project Runway” star and designer Michael Costello was dragged through the mud after criticizing Kylie Jenner for tagging designers on social media that Costello believes paid for publicity.
“[T]hank you to the no name designers who work tirelessly around the clock on custom looks who she won’t tag , mention or @ . . . Unless it’s paid,” Costello wrote on an IG post for Kylie’s birthday dress.
“Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent noticed the troll by Costello and put him in the hot seat by claiming he threw similar shade in the fashion world.
“What a clown. This dude. I literally blew him up to make my custom wedding dress-he would have gotten all the ‘tags & @’s’ he’s talking about. But I never heard back from him… why? Because I’m not ‘big enough.’ So cool out, Costello-you do the same s–t,” Kent wrote on social media.
The controversial designer immediately responded to the Bravo star, telling her, “You wanted us to dress you and we passed,” he captioned the post. “You didn’t want to buy anything we also confirmed an appointment for you and it was a no show! Why are you complaining a whole year later? God bless.”
“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,” Todd Chrisley’s 23-year-old daughter explained.
Lala jumped into Savannah’s IG post to show support, and even Lala’s fiance, Randall Emmett, thought the post was “well said.”
After getting bashed from many sides, designer Michael Costello finally defended himself by writing a long response to Savannah Chrisley.
“You look beautiful honey . I have nothing to say about you because i do not know you at all we have never met and you never reached out to me to get a ‘NO’ but dig a little deeper Walter was my best friend and use to work for me for 3 years . Like i said get the facts straight . Not everyone should expect something for free if they are on a reality show,” Costello fired at the reality stars.
Michael Costello put the nail in the coffin by straight up telling Savannah and Lala that they are not friends and should not expect anything for “free.”
“Had i known you personally and you followed me and reached out things could have been different but we are not Friends and do not know each other on that level , there is no reason why you should feel entitled for me to dress you or make something for free for you or Lala . It doesn’t matter how famous any one is all of my high profile clients respect me and my work and come to me when they have a vision and budget . God bless.”
