One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Rumor has it Slimane approached CEO Bernard Arnault about dropping Yves from the name and go by just Saint Laurent.
Who does he think he is? Jack McFarland!?
Slimane apparently wants to "lose the history" associated with the iconic label and Arnault is actually considering it.
Yves Saint Laurent’s long-time partner, Pierre Berge, has gone to great lengths to keep the designer in the forefront of peoples minds when they think of the brand.
No word on how he feels about this, but it’s safe to say it’s not good!
Hmm… we just can’t envision a label with only SL on it, can U???
