I think people know that @leonalewis isn’t someone who seeks out a headline, so when she shares something like this you know it has taken a lot of courage to do so. We’ve all come across people who make us feel insecure; intentional or not, you shouldn’t be afraid to call it out. pic.twitter.com/0rdFDpfm6e— Ryan Love 2.0 (@RyanJL74) June 15, 2021
Leona Lewis reveals how fashion designer Michael Costello humiliated her at a 2014 charity event and left her with body insecurities for years. Michael abandoned Leona the night before she was supposed to walk a fashion show. Michael apparently didn't want to alter the dress for Leona as either she could walk in the dress as is or not participate. Thing is the outfit did not fit Leona, she writes on social media that Michael did not show up to the fitting and left no explanation for his no show, leaving her high and dry. Leona was embarrassed and gutted because she could not participate in the event resorting to lying to the press when asked about it. Also since she couldn't fit into the sample size it messed with her body image and made her insecure. Leona says, "We all make mistakes ... I feel that when people apologize (Chrissy) and show sincere remorse & rehabilitation for their actions, we should embrace them & not try and kick them when they’re down".
