Never had that conversation with her, it was taken out of context: Celebrity stylist Law Roach on Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ comment on called not ‘sample-sized’
Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach recently took everyone by surprise when he announced his retirement as a celebrity stylist. However, he has also put another spin to Priyanka’s remark of not being ‘sample-sized’ in a recent interview and being body shamed for it.
In a recent interview, Priyanka had talked about feeling ‘crappy’ after an unnamed person had body shamed her and told her that she ‘wasn’t sample sized’. Now, in an interview to an online portal, Law said that he has never had that conversation with Priyanka and that it was taken out of context. He said, “It was a little bit hurtful in a way that it ended up in the press, you know? Because that wasn't the real conversation. I've never had that conversation with her, ever. So again, it is her gatekeepers (agents), how they presented what I said to her to make her feel that way. And if that made her feel bad, that wasn't - it was taken out of context.”

Law further spoke about whether the star’s agents were trying to make him look bad, “But I'm sure it was taken outta context to get her to be like, ‘Oh, okay, I'm not working with him no more. He's insensitive to my body.’ Which I'm like, ‘How is that possible? I've been dressing you for literally pre-pandemic, and it's been nothing but great things.’ I think sometimes what it is with them (agents) is that they have an agenda and I need to be the bad guy because I'm the one who's dealing with the clothes and the body. Like, I need to be the one who says, you know — and I'm not talking about her. I'm just talking about in general, like, I need to be the one to say, ‘Oh, you know, be careful because, you know, the pictures aren't as beautiful because you coming across, you know, a little thicker than you used to be.’ It is, like, so they'll say that to me or have a discussion with me but then take it back as if I was the lead in the discussion. And I'm not saying that's exactly what happened, but that's what feels like happened to me.”
However, he praised Priyanka and added that he loved her. Law said, “But I was really surprised that - I love Priyanka. When you are around her, there's only so many women in this industry that have that thing. I'm constantly inspired by women, and she has this thing that's very Old Hollywood, Sophia Loren - it drives me crazy. She has a twinkle, she has a wiggle, and I love her, like, even as a person.”
