Megan Mullally Bought Her SAG Awards Gown Online After Designers Wouldn't Dress Her

The 2019 SAG Awards host reveals she went dress shopping online when high-fashion designers refused to dress her

Megan Mullally went shopping for her SAG Awards dress online!

The actress, 60, who is hosting the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards in L.A. Sunday night, revealed she turned to the internet to find her gown after designers refused to lend her a high-fashion piece.

“I always pick out clothes online and buy my own stuff because first of all I like it because I can just wear what I want to wear but also the major designers are not interested in sending me any dresses,” Mullally told Access Hollywood on the red carpet.

The star ultimately selected a black Alexander McQueen gown, Marni purse, Aquazzura heels, Chanel earrings and vintage rings and bracelets all from her own closet. But she did note that Alexander McQueen did provide her with some options before she decided to purchase a dress on her own.

  • The official pre-show, People, Entertainment Weekly and TNT Red Carpet Live: 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards, will livestream beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET/2:30 p.m. PT on,, and, in addition to being broadcast live in Times Square.

“Alexander McQueen did send two dresses but they didn’t work out, but this is an Alexander McQueen dress that I bought online,” Mullally said.

She added, “I said I am literally hosting. There is a 100 percent chance that I will be on camera. But people were like, ‘No, no thanks.'”

But the SAG Awards host didn’t let that bring her down. “But that’s ok. I think it’s funny but I think it’s interesting for people to know that because I think everybody in the general public thinks well everybody is getting dresses thrown at them left and right, but that’s not actually the case,” Mullally said.

Bebe Rexha made headlines earlier this week for calling out designers who refused to dress her for the Grammy Awards next month because she’s a size 8. Demi Lovato spoke out supporting the star, and now Mullally is defending the artist as well.

“I think that’s s—!” Mullally said. “I don’t like it. If you’re not the right age or not the right size or not the right level of coolness or whatever it is, I mean I think it should be a little more egalitarian. But I’m not bitter about it at all. I’m actually glad I don’t have to deal with a lot of different personalities. I can just go online and be like, ‘I like that one!'”
