Michael Costello is “inspired” and reminded of why he designs clothes after giving Adalia Rose the dresses of her dreams.


Known in the world of fashion and having dressed A-lister celebrities, including Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez, Michael Costello was able to put his talents and blessings to good use in 2019.

The designer made a kind gesture before the year 2019 ended a gifted 13-year-old Adalia Rose dresses of his own creation.



Adalia, just like any other teen, is a fan of fashion, but uniquely suffers from a genetic disorder that shows early-aging and gives her a smaller frame.

She recently celebrated her birthday, perhaps the most memorable one yet after being surprised with custom-made dresses.


The 36-year-old designer captured the heart-warming moment Adalia opened her gift and had the biggest smile on her face. He wrote:

“When I first met you, your bright smile and warm heart brought so much joy. You’ve inspired me to create and reminded me of the reason why I got started in the first place. Thank you for just being you.”



The post featured to Costello creations; one was a two-piece turquoise dress, inspired from “Aladdin’s” Princess Jasmine. 

He has since been featured in big events, most notable by Beyonce during the 2014 Grammy Awards.

The other was a one-shoulder fuchsia gown that the teen was seen modeling on video. The social media star called the pieces “perfect” and thanked the designer for his surprise.


Adalia and Costello previously met during his trip to Austin, Texas, and had dinner with the teen. He then described her as “so adorable and so sweet,” but also “sassy” like other kids of her age. He added:

“She said she loves J. Lo and anything that J. Lo wears she likes to wear, and she loves flowy fabrics and sparkles.”


Costello may be bigtime in the fashion industry, but his heart is of pure intentions and uses his talents to make others feel good in beautiful clothing.


Costello first rose to fame after being a finalist on season eight of “Project Runway.” He has since been featured in big events, most notable by Beyonce during the 2014 Grammy Awards.


His name gained attention in November after designing a beautiful Medusa costume for Lebron James’ wife Savannah James.

The vengeful goddess look was completed with the iconic living serpents coming out as her hair, which magically turns men who look at them to stone.

James posted her beautiful ensemble and makeup by Alex Faction on social media and had the caption: “Don’t look into her eyes.”
