Also, Rory would be dead. At least one of… »6/11/15 10:10am6/11/15 10:10am

Several Designers Refused to Make Melissa McCarthy an Oscar Dress

One might think that designers would be falling all over themselves to dress a fan-favorite actress pretty much guaranteed to get red-carpet screen time and post-show magazine coverage.
