We know what you're thinking, and no, the slapper wasn't Naomi Campbell.
Fashion Week can get stressful, especially when the fire marshal yanks out 60 seats before the Zac Posen show!
French publishing exec Marie-José Susskind-Jalou and her daughters Jennifer Eymere and Vanessa Bellugeon decided to leave in a huff after she realized her rump-rest was removed.
HL Group co-founder Lynn Tesoro couldn’t find her a different seat, so Eymere bitch slapped Tesoro!
The daughter proudly explained her action, saying:
“I said, ‘Don’t speak to my mom like this. You have to stop to speak like that.’ I said, ‘Be careful, I am going to slap you,’ and she kept doing it, and it just happened. I am sorry, I know it’s bad to do that. It was a small slap. It was not strong. I didn’t hurt her, it was just to humiliate her. She humiliated my mom, and I humiliated her in front of her crew. Voilà. I just said at the end, ‘Now you know you don’t f*ck with French people.’”
Woah! Message received!
Note to all designers everywhere: make sure those Frenchies get their seats first!
