The best part, though, was when she had another message for every designer that refused to dress her.

Designer August Getty responded to the post asking Rexha when he should start sketching, and he ultimately designed two dresses for the 29-year-old for events leading up to the Grammys.

"I love my body, and I just want other girls to love their bodies", Rexha told E! on the red carpet, while sharing that Jeremy Scott, Christian Siriano and Karl Lagerfeld had also reached out to the singer with offers to design her a look.

All eyes had been on Rexha for the past month, when she called out a number of unspecified designers for declining to dress her for the Grammy Awards because she is a size 8.

The singer topped off her look with a sparkly necklace with matching and went with a half-up hairstyle to tie in the look.

"I'm okay, I don't get angry at people", she said.

Her claim to fame was "No Broken Hearts" featuring rapper Nicki Minaj, Cash Cash's "Take Me Home", David Guetta's "Hey Mama", and "Me, Myself & I" with G-Eazy. "For me this is my Cinderella moment".

"A lot of times artists will go and talk to designers, and they'll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet. Literally, like, I'm too big". They said I was too big or fat, and I love my body, you know? "I don't wanna wear your f***ing dresses".

"You're saying all the women in the world that are a size 8 and up are not handsome and that they can not wear your dresses. I just want to wear people and work with people who love me for me".

The star reiterated her outrage in her caption, adding: "If you don't like my fashion style or my music that's one thing".

Monsoori has previously dressed stars such as singers Kesha and Kelly Rowland, and actress Ashley Greene.
