Update: Shortly after Rachel Bloom told E! News’ Giuliana Rancic that Gucci reportedly would not lend her a dress, she tweeted that she didn’t actually ask the fashion house to borrow a piece because, as she put it, “they loan to very few.” Still, Bloom doesn’t seem to be backing down from her original sentiment; she added: “That being said, pickings are still slim for non-sample size ladies.”
We’ve reached out to Gucci for comment and will update this piece if/when we hear back.

For Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator Rachel Bloom, the struggle to get dressed during awards season is so real. On Sunday, she told E! News’ Giuliana Rancic that Gucci reportedly would not lend her a dress for the 69th Annual Emmy Awards, so she bought it instead. “I can always resell it on the The Real Real tomorrow!” she told the host. “It’s hard to get places to lend me dresses because I’m not a size zero, but I can afford it, so it’s okay.”
Not to mention all of those purchases add up to a huge chunk of a change (whether you can “afford” it or not). No wonder Bloom is considering reselling her gown on The Real Real. We would probably do the same.
