A defeated Maura continued: "I don't really know what to say, it's like, I just feel it's not very appropriate for the Fashion Awards."

She mentioned that she typically opts for bold looks but didn't feel the ensemble was her style, she said: "I obviously do like to go daring, you guys know that, but I just feel, I don't know.

"It's just not right. So yeah, I've decided not to go. I'm still in the hotel as you can see," she said, breaking the news that she would be skipping out on the 2022 BFAs.
