If you wondered why Falynn Guobadia isn't sashaying down runways during Fashion Week, she blames Michael Costello for killing her career.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' friend shared an alleged incident with the fashion designer that led her to quit modeling.

Falynn said the 'Project Runway' designer made her feel "uncomfortable and inadequate" when she was a young model.

"[Because] of this traumatic experience, unfortunately, it was the end of my pursuit to become a fashion model," she wrote.

Falynn, a 31-year-old mother of four, said she auditioned for Costello's fashion show at LA Fashion Week at age 23. She was instructed to bring a particular type of underwear.

However, when she showed up on the day of the event with the underwear, she learned she was shut out of the show.

"I see Michael and his sister talking in a corner and looking at me with this look on their faces as if I was the scum of the Earth," she wrote.

"Then, in front of all of the models and his team, they come over to me and say, 'Someone was supposed to call you. We don't need you for the show and have nothing for you to wear.'

"All of the models gasped and covered their faces. I was embarrassed and ashamed. I ran outside and cried for two hours. I never auditioned to model again."

Falynn is going through a messy divorce from Simon Guobadia who is engaged to RHOA star Porsha Williams.

Costello, 38, recently came under fire for allegedly calling Black fashion designer Maxie James the n-word.

Designer Michael Costello has apologized to Leona Lewis after she complained that he body shamed her during a dress fitting in 2014.

Costello admitted he was "completely blindsided" by the singer's claims that he bullied her.

Lewis, 36, shared her experiences with Costello after he accused Chrissy Teigen of bullying him to the point of considering suicide.

Lewis said that back in 2014, she was asked to take part in a fashion show to raise money for charity. Costello was assigned as her designer.

However, the British star claimed she felt "very awkward and uncomfortable" at the fitting because "the dress was a sample size and he/his team clearly did not want it to fit me".

She said Costello canceled on her, adding: "He no longer wanted to dress me and he abandoned his commitments to me and the show which made me well aware that I wasn't the body type required."

Lewis, who has since lost weight, said she suffered "personally and professionally" due to Costello's actions, adding: "The most hurtful thing is that it was to raise money for charity, and this went against everything we were trying to do."

Costello, who is openly ghey, responded in a post on his Instagram page, insisting he was "surprised" by the singer's allegations because he "fangirled" over her at the fitting.

"I was really surprised to hear about your traumatic experience with me from the Go Red Women charity event in 2014. I flew to New York just to fit you and we had a wonderful time at the fitting. I fangirled over you and told you how much I loved your songs. You are one of the most talented and beautiful women I know. We took photos and I left options of dresses for you with the charity.

"You told me you absolutely loved the dresses, so much so that even after that event in 2014, you continue to wear and post me on your own IG in 2015, Your team has continuously reached out to me to pull custom looks for you, which I was happy to create. The most recent request I received from you was May 17, 2021."

The 38-year-old designer, who employed this plus-size model during his L.A. Fashion week runway show in 2019, continued:

"I don't take accusations of body shaming lightly, as I have built a career as celebrating diverse women of all shapes and sizes," he continued. "But if I did unintentionally hurt you and you continued to support me, I want to apologize to you directly. This caught me by surprise, I am completely blindsided."

Concluding his open letter, Costello wrote: "Whenever you're ready, I'm here. Let's have a heart-to-heart conversation. @leonalewis."

Lewis was discovered on the TV talent show 'The X Factor.' Her debut album, Spirit, went 10x platinum in the UK and became the 4th best selling album of the 2000s.

Alexander Wang has been accused of sexually assaulting male and transgender models, including allegedly drugging and groping them.

The 37-year-old designer's accusers went public with the allegations on social media on Monday.

A post by industry watchdog S**t Model Mgmt accused Wang of being a "sexual predator" and asked fashion buyers to boycott his clothing line.

"Alexander Wang is an alleged sexual predator, many male models and trans models have come out and spoken about the alleged sexual abuse that Alexander Wang has inflicted upon them.

"It is important to show your support to these victims by unfollowing Alexander Wang and boycotting his clothing line."

Several anonymous accounts shared stories of alleged sexual misconduct and being drugged with MDMA.

Model Owen Mooney had earlier uploaded a TikTok video claiming he was "touched up" by a "really famous" fashion designer in 2017. Although Mooney did not initially name his alleged abuser, he later uploaded a follow-up video and confirmed it was Wang.

According to editors at WWD, Wang's spokeswoman declined to comment on Tuesday.

However, fashion advocacy group Model Alliance issued a statement on the same day, supporting Wang’s accusers.

"We at Model Alliance stand in solidarity with those who have shared accusations of sexual abuse by Alexander Wang," the group stated in an Instagram post. "Let's be clear: The fashion industry's lack of transparency and accountability leaves all models vulnerable to abuse, regardless of their sex or gender identity."

So far, Wang's celebrity clients, including Lady Gaga (pictured at the 2015 Met Gala), Rihanna, Doja Cat, Balla Hadid, Kylie Jenner, and Miley Cyrus, have remained silent.

Rappers who name dropped the designer in their songs include Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Quavo Huncho, and Vic Mensa.

Fashion designer Michael Costello drew backlash on Instagram when he commented under a Kylie Jenner post after she tagged the designer of her birthday dress.

The drama ensued after Kylie posted an Instagram image of her 23rd birthday dress on Wednesday, August 12.

She captioned the image: "thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress..."
 

Costello was outraged when he saw Kylie tag the designer of her birthday dress. Costello has designed dresses for Kylie for free - and he never got a shout out from her on social media.

Costello took to Instagram and posted a lengthy comment on Jenner's post, calling her out for not always tagging fashion designers like him in her social media posts.

Costello, pictured with Nicole Scherzinger, said he's not the only one who designed free dresses for Kylie and never got tagged in her posts.

"For example, Bryan Hearns makes a lot of dresses for Kylie and no one ever gives him any credit and he deserves it. Makeup artists and stylists are getting tagged but the clothing designers are not."

Costello's outburst went viral on social media, and stars such as Lala Kent and Savannah Chrisley shared their negative experiences with him.

Kent wrote: "I literally blew him up to make my custom wedding dress-he would have gotten all the 'tags & @'s' he's talking about. But I never heard back from him. why? Because I'm not 'big enough.' So cool out, Costello - you do the same s--t."

Costello apologized for his meltdown, telling Us Weekly, "I have no issues or beef with Kylie Jenner."

"I love her. The reason I commented on her post is because she is often tagging some designers but not others."

He continued:

"In regards to me, there is no bad air. Kylie has worn my outfits about four or five times. She didn't tag me in posts but her stylist has and she acknowledges me in person and says how much she appreciates my work. I just want the public to see what is happening with the designers and how we are often doing work for free for no credit."
