The INSIDER Summary:

As the actors and actresses show off borrowed designer dresses on the Emmys red carpet, at least one star brought her own dress to the awards show.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” actress Rachel Bloom bought her Gucci gown for the 69th annual Primetime Emmys because she claimed the designer wouldn’t lend her one.

“I bought this dress because Gucci is not lending me a dress,” Bloom said on the E! red carpet. “I love it and I can resell it. Here’s the thing, I’m now at the place where I can afford it.”

Bloom said it can be tough to find designers who will lend her dresses because of her body size. 

“I said in an interview before, sometimes it’s hard to get places to lend me dresses because I’m not like a size zero, but also I can afford it so it’s ok,” added Bloom.

The gown retails for $US3,500 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

If you love the look, Bloom said she’ll put it up for sale on TheRealReal on Monday.
