Lala Kent is speaking up in defense of Kylie Jenner.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 30, called out fashion designer Michael Costello for refusing to make her wedding dress because she is not a “big enough” celebrity.
“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 spoke up in reaction to Costello slamming Kylie Jenner for only tagging high-profile designers on Instagram rather than regularly giving credit to smaller labels.
“It’s sad that designers work so so so so hard on these opportunities to dress these gorgeous popular women and they only tag the major high end designers like Olivier but forget about the other ones,” Costello commented on a recent photo Jenner posted thanking Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing for a bejeweled birthday dress. “Why not tag at least one? Not all the time but maybe once in a while.”
The former Project Runway designer — who regularly creates custom pieces for the likes of Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez and sells ready-made wedding gowns that range in price from $2,400 to more than $24,000 — clapped back at Kent, posting a screenshot of text messages with her wedding planner to his Instagram Story.
“You wanted us to dress you and we passed!,” he wrote. “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.”
“You made my point. You passed on me just like Kylie Jenner passes on you,” Kent shot back. “Get over it.”
Kent was set to wed Randall Emmett on April 28, but the two announced they were postponing due to the coronavirus pandemic; it’s unclear when the couple will tie the knot.
A rep for Costello did not immediately respond to Page Six Style’s request for comment.
