Modeling career

Michael Costello killed my modeling career

Michael Costello is once again under fire – this time from a “real housewife”.

The fashion designer made the news on Monday when he alleged that Chrissy Teigen and her stylist, Monica Rose, bullied and blacklisted him in the industry in 2014, leaving him with “deep trauma and not cured “and even thoughts of suicide.

Then on Tuesday, pop star Leona Lewis claimed Costello had “humiliated” and “deeply hurt” her at a fashion show that same year, when he allegedly refused to dress her because of her height. .

And on Thursday, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Falynn Guobadia came forward to claim that the “Project Runway” creator, 38, made her feel “uncomfortable and inadequate” when she was a girl. young model.

“[Because] from that traumatic experience, unfortunately, that was the end of my quest to become a model, ”she wrote.

Guobadia said she auditioned for Costello’s fashion show at Los Angeles Fashion Week when she was 23 and was chosen after the designer complimented her on her body and her runway. .

But when she showed up on the day of the event, after purchasing the underwear requested by the Costello team, Guobadia alleged that she was suddenly banned from the show.

“I see Michael and his sister talking in a corner and looking at me with that look on their faces like I’m the scum of the Earth,” she wrote. “Then, in front of all the models and her team, they come up to me and say, ‘Someone was supposed to call you. We don’t need you for the show and we don’t need anything to wear for you.

Continued the “RHOA” star, “All the models gasped and covered their faces. I was embarrassed and ashamed. I ran outside and cried for two hours. I never auditioned to be a model again.

The Costello team did not immediately respond to Page Six Style’s request for comment.

He worked things out with Lewis, however, and was still “waiting” to hear from Teigen.
