SAVANNAH Chrisley accused designer Michael Costello of refusing to dress her for an event after seeing him “bash” Kylie Jenner online.
The Project Runway alum dragged Kylie for failing to credit “no-name designers” who “work so hard” in the comments of a post about her birthday dress last week.
Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent, 30, saw Michael’s lengthy comment on the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star’s post and called him out for ignoring her after she asked him to design her wedding dress.
After seeing all of the back-and-forth, Savannah, 23, who celebrated her own birthday last week, decided to share her own experience with the designer.
The Chrisley Knows Best star didn’t ask him to create a wedding gown – for the May wedding to ex-fiance Nic Kerdiles she ended up calling off – but she did claim to ask for help getting an outfit together for a big industry event.
She shared a photo from the affair on Sunday, to which she ended up wearing a black-and-nude Walter Collection number, writing with it: “Y’all… Designer Michael Costello is currently bashing @kyliejenner for not giving credit to certain designers.
“And then @lalakent came forward saying Michael refused to dress her because she wasn’t ‘famous enough.’
“And HE DID THE SAME THING TO ME FOR AN NBC EVENT!!”
The pixie-cut blonde beauty continued: “Wouldn’t dress me because I just wasn’t famous enough for him. It’s truly so sad.
“But then @waltercollection dressed me in this gorgeous design and made me feel so much better!! 😍😭🙌🏼”
Although he wasn’t directly tagged in the photo or caption, Michael noticed Savannah’s post about him and wanted to get in his side of the story.
The fasion designer started off by telling her how “beautiful” the Growing Up Chrisley look in the dress she wore to the event, before adding that he doesn’t really have much to say about her because they’ve “never met” and she “never reached out” to even get a “no.”
He continued: “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…
“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.”
Michael added that there’s absolutely no reason she, nor Lala, should feel “entitled” to having him dress her or “make something for free.”
He concluded: “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.”
These two TV personalities calling out Michael comes after he bashed Kylie on her birthday post last week of a gallery of photos of herself in a colorful, bejeweled minidress by French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing.
She made sure to give the Balmain creative director a shout-out in the caption, writing: “thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress 🌴.”
While many of her 190 million followers fawned all over the “stunning birthday fit,” Michael blasted the Kylie Cosmetics founder for not giving designers credit for her looks on social media unless they’re well known or she gets paid.
