Blind Item #8

This permanent A list designer who is not a nice person charged triple her normal rate for a recent dress for this celebrity offspring because she knew the offspring would pay it.

Vera wang/Hailey Baldwin

Brayson87 said...

Why not, it wasn't her money.

Brayson87 said...

Probably wasn't even the most expensive little white lie.

MeliticusBee said...

Yeah - If she'll bitch about flowers from oprah fucking winfrey....skanky celebrity spawn will get charged super duper extra....

Slapped in the face by Wang
And not for the first or last time I'll wager.

Nothing personal just business.

Half Domer Homer said...

That's just good business.

What's not to like about this story?

Vita said...

I dont like selective customer service and sliding price scales (loyalty discounts excluded). Between this and the other blind, I can't stand Vera Wang.

I used to work for HL Group in NYC and we represented Vera and DVF. Both are total psychos, but Vera takes the cake. I'll never forget the time I saw her creeping around Bloomies in Soho to check out the way they were displaying her merch. And also the time she had a waitress fired from Blue Fin at the W in Times Square for messing up her sashimi order. I also repped Bobbi Brown (makeup) and she was LOVELY.

she's 70 years old... at what time can you just relax and back off the greediness.

'Slapped in the face by Wang.'
Brilliant hahahaha!

Vita said...

Great scoop, Fashionfluff!

Sd Auntie said...

Thankbyou for sharing! If you amy other fashion scoops would love to hear them!

The whole fashion industry ia a big scam.

Astra Worthington said...

Yes, fashion is a big scam. Especially if you can sew, know what flatters you, and do it yourself for a quarter of the price. And look at most of the designers anyway. Creepy, ugly, poorly dressed, and you think they’re gonna know how to make normal people look their best? Lol nah.

bootsy said...

If you're interested in fashion then I can highly recommend a book called Fashion Babylon.

MountainMama said...

I would love to meet Vera, she sounds like such a cunt. It would be fun to have a bit of a row with her.

Bleu said...

3X the going rate to offspring of a celebrity? That's horrible (enty did say the designer is an awful person) and guarantees loss of future business when it gets out.

Brayson87 said...

@Bleu, It's the meth head rate.

Brayson87 said...

@Astra, Yes with this fast fashion garbage you'd better at least know how to mend, that crap starts falling apart after three washes.

Scottish Wildcat said...

I've not read any negative stuff about Vera Wang, if she did that to the waitress that's disgusting, I hate it when people that get a little bit of power abuse those they consider "lower" than themselves 🤬

If you've any more gossip I too would love to hear 😉

Scottish Wildcat said...

I didn't like Hailey's dress - looked like it was falling down, too low-cut IMO.

Astra Worthington said...

Brayson, and the prices! If I’m going to pay for a cheap ill fitting piece of shoddy fabric, I certainly don’t want to pay exorbitant amounts of money for it. It’s criminal. But everything nowadays is like that. Planned obsolescence, and the best part is it’s done by the corporations that lecture us about the environment and recycling and buying less, as they churn out cheap crap that won’t last.

Krissie said...

I actually like her wedding dresses but yeah high fashion is a bunch of bs. I wish I could learn to sew but I don;t have the patience.

Fashionfluff said...

Well, to be honest that waitress was me. And imagine her surprise when I walked through the door at HL Group a few years later...

I worked in the fashion industry for over a decade. I’ve got stories. Lots of them!

And stories about Clooney and his gaggle of male models who would roll up to The Carlyle Hotel to meet him in his favorite penthouse. I was a regular at Bemelman’s.

@Fashionfluff: Very informative posts!
Please say more about why DVF is a "psycho" and is her marriage to Barry Diller just so her kids can inherit his money?

Vita said...

Oh, Fashionfluff, PLEASE keep commenting and spilling! Great stuff!😁

Aquagirl said...

@Fashion Fluff: Loved your story! Did she even remotely recognize you? A friend of mine worked for DK for a looong time (another psycho) until she just couldn’t cope anymore.

Fashionfluff said...

Barry plays for the other team. It’s a marriage of money and convenience. DVF wasn’t that bad, but she sure loved to call HL’s cofounder and scream at the top of her lungs. Why she’d put it on speaker, I’ll never know.

If you run a company as large as DVF or V Wang, you really do need to be a psycho to some extent to keep it afloat. Don’t think Vera recognized me...she thought I was just some actress/model wannabe at Blue Fin.

My old coworker used to work as a stylist for Givenchy and said yes, at that time Kanye was with Riccardo Tisci.

I’ll have to dig deep to remember all the crazy, shocking things I experienced, but for the most part, the majority of the celebs I came across were pretty nice.

Fashion is another story!

MelRose said...

I can't wait for Bernie to be elected and socialism to kick in. FREE Vera Wang gowns for everyone!!

Studio54 said...

@Fashionfluff. Thank you again for your post and info about Barry Diller. He dated DVF in the 70's, then went gay, then mysteriously went back to her in 2001. I read it was because he liked her son Alexander and wanted to leave his money to him.

Fashionfluff said...

Well, that is VERY interesting and makes sense!

On the bearding note, I've also always heard that SJP and Matthew Broderick were just besties and that MB is actually with Nathan Lane and they both have raging coke habits.
