This Celeb Bought Her Own Golden Globes Dress Because She's a Size 10

Actress Bryce Dallas Howard bought her own Golden Globes dress because apparently sample sizes are too small. 

Only days before the Golden Globes,  The Help and Jurassic World actress, Bryce Dallas Howard, found herself without a dress. Why?

Because at an Australian size 10, she simply didn't have the body shape to allure the right couture. 

Fashion big wigs normally beg stars to wear their designs at awards shows, loaning celebs dresses to show-off at the big red carpet events. However, this becomes more difficult - and the options far less - when you're not stick thin.

Bryce, 34, told E! TV personality, Giuliana Rancic, she bought her Jenny Packham dress at a Neimann Marcus department store. 

"I just picked it up at Neiman's this week," she said while being interviewed on the red carpet. 

 "I like having lots of options for a size 6 [US - an AU 10], as opposed to maybe one option, so I always go to department stores."

Sadly, Bryce isn't the first star to encounter this problem. 

A few years ago, Oscar-nominee Melissa McCarthy found herself without a dress to the Academy Awards thanks to the designers who wouldn't even give her a look. 

"Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me," she said. " I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no.”

The star has since started her own plus-sized line in order to remedy the lack of options available to larger women.
