EMMYS 2017

Rachel Bloom Bought Her Gucci Dress for the 2017 Emmy Awards

And she’s planning on selling it online.

Stealing a red carpet look just got a helluva lot easier, thanks to the hilarious (and honest) Rachel Bloom. The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend actress and Emmy presenter showed up to the 2017 Emmy Awards looking drop-dead gorgeous in a stunning black Gucci gown—and revealed on the red carpet that she not only bought the gown herself but also plans to resell the dress tomorrow online.

While discussing the age-old topic of “Who are you wearing?” with red-carpet host Giuliana Rancic, Bloom revealed that she purchased the beautiful Gucci creation—which features a V neckline, column silhouette, and intricate lace detailing—herself, rather than having a designer lend her a gown, as many celebrities do. “I bought this dress because Gucci is not lending me a dress,” she revealed bluntly to Rancic, highlighting a decades-old problem within the fashion industry: Most designers lend out gowns that are runway sizes, which are typically a size 0 or 2. Most American women, however, are not{: rel=nofollow} those sizes.

Bloom continued to keep it real with Rancic, saying that “it’s OK” that she had to shell out for her own dress (which retails{: rel=nofollow} for $3,500) since she can afford it and is planning on reselling it anyway. “Take a look on The RealReal for this dress tomorrow,” she said with a laugh.

Bloom’s empowering and practical take on purchasing (and reselling) her own ensemble is certainly refreshing. And this is not the first time she’s opened up about having to dress herself for red carpets before: Bloom previously revealed in an essay for Wealthsimple that she spends upward of $3,000 for her red-carpet looks.

“What has become apparent when I have to get clothes for these events is that I have a normal body,” Bloom wrote at the time. “A lot of fashion houses are reluctant to lend clothes that aren’t in the sample sizes of 0 and 2, so it’s getting harder and harder for me to find clothes without buying them… That’s the whole problem with the fashion industry. My body size is literally normal and healthy, but when you put me next to a model, I look obese.”

But the fashion industry’s loss for not dressing an actress as gorgeous as Rachel Bloom is about to become the internet’s win tomorrow when some lucky fashionista scores that Gucci gown for a steal.
