  • Law Roach discussed styling celebrities for the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party on Twitter. 

  • Roach said only five of the six celebrities he styled made it to the red carpet on March 12. 

  • One client experienced a wardrobe malfunction in a vintage Galliano gown. 

Law Roach said one of the celebrities he styled for the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party couldn't walk the red carpet following a wardrobe malfunction.

Roach shared the behind-the-scenes details in a series of tweets on Friday. The renowned fashion stylist styled six celebrities for the event – including Kerry Washington, Hunter Schafer, Hailee Steinfeld, Eve Jobs, and Megan Thee Stallion – but one didn't make the red carpet.

"I really wish you guys would gotten to see the 6th look that I did for VF," Roach wrote. He continued, adding there was "so much going on" that he didn't get to share about it "My last client didn't make the carpet," he wrote.

He continued: "Her dress vintage Galliano dress got stuck in the car door and completely ripped and expose the lady parts."

 

Roach didn't clarify which celebrity he was referring to but told his 59,000 Twitter followers that he calls the women he styled for the Vanity Fair Oscar party his "final five."

"So grateful to them all," he added.

On Tuesday, Roach shocked his fans by announcing his retirement from styling in a now-deleted Instagram post. Entertainment account Pop Base shared screenshots at the time.

"If this business was just about the clothes I would do it for the rest of my life but unfortunately it's not," Roach wrote. "The politics, the lies, and false narratives finally got me. You win… I'm out."

In a statement to Insider, Roach said he was stepping away from celebrity styling to focus on himself.

"For me fashion has always been a love, not a job. I've spent so much time and energy nurturing this love and it has become my way of communicating with the world," Roach said. "I don't plan to walk away from it entirely, I am just going to take some time to step away from celebrity styling and focus on myself for the first time in nearly a decade."

On Friday, he clarified to fans that his retirement didn't mean he was "breaking up" with Zendaya, his longtime collaborator.

"So y'all really think I'm breaking up with Z….. we are forever," he tweeted. "She's my little sister and it's real love not the fake industry love."

In February, Roach told Insider's Amanda Krause that "styling is like a drug for me when I know I get it right."

"Whoever I'm dressing, when they have that extra little thing — a little spark or a little wiggle in their walk — I just love that feeling."
