This one shocks me since the fashion designer community has been known for being such warm, hospitable people. Cough. Megan Mullally took a novel approach in announcing that she’s hosting the 2019 SAG Awards, and that was the angry way. Megan posted on Instagram about how she was running into issues getting designers to dress her, which is strange since she’s gonna be HOSTING the damn thing. Poor Megan. Now her house is going to look like a FedEx sorting room from all the dress boxes being sent her way.
E! News says Megan was on Instagram airing her fashion grievances:
“Will I be dressed as a Spanish señorita? We don’t know. Looks like I will be buying my dress online though, as per my usual, even though there is literally a 100 percent chance that I will be on camera, because I’M HOSTING IT. Designers do not send me dresses.”
Megan is also pissed because she tried to order something from Saks Fifth Avenue, and the order got cancelled. Psh, that should NEVER happen to Karen Walker! She still sees the silver lining and presumably isn’t one of us who is pissed about Claire Foy being replaced on The Crown because she says she’s jazzed to meet Olivia Coleman:

This is the same shit Leslie Jones went through when nobody was stepping up to dress her for the Ghostbusters premiere, so naturally Leslie’s knight in sewing armor, Christian Siriano, is stepping up here and commented, “I would love to dress you!” Candice King seemed elated by Christian volunteering because she chimed in with, “The Siriano Bat Signal has lit up the gram and you answered! Yes! So excited to see this happen!” Plus, Leslie wound up on a slew of Best Dressed lists, so this will totally give Megan the opportunity to pull the Pretty Woman “Big mistake. Huge!” routine on Saks when she’s on stage.
