“And if a size six to eight is too big then I don’t know what to tell you and I don’t want to wear your f****** dresses.

“It’s crazy, you’re saying all the women in the world that are size eight and up are not beautiful and they cannot wear your dresses.

“So all the people who said I’m too big and I can’t wear your dresses. F*** you, I don’t want to wear your f****** dresses.”

She added in the caption that it is okay if designers do not like her fashion style or music, but “don’t say you can’t dress someone that isn’t a runway size”.
