The 33-year-old actress always looks stunning on the red carpet, but recently admitted to Vogue she struggles to find a designer who will create a gown to compliment her curves.

“I had a situation with a high-end brand the other day where I had personally invested so much money purchasing their items, and I love what they do, so I had my publicist reach out to their PR team,” she revealed. “Their response was, ‘Oh, you’re not the sizes we have, not right now, maybe in the future’.

“Now, even if they want me to (wear their designs) down the road, I will not give them the pleasure.”

Dascha was briefly disappointed, but she’s happy to report there are plenty of up-and-coming designers to collaborate with: “People who love my curves and embrace them as much as I do,” she added.
