Designers at New York Fashion Week are getting upset with IMG organizers over their celebrity guests!
A source reveals:
"IMG told the designers and celebrity teams, 'If you show at Lincoln Center, you play by our rules and bring your celebrity guests through the front.' But why should the celebs have to pose with the sponsor boards when they are here to support the designer?"
But celeb guests for the Tommy Hilfiger and Max Azria shows on Sunday went through the back entrance!
A rep for BCBG/Maz Azria explains, "Celebrities need to come in the back because we care about their security and the security of show attendees. When celebs walk through the front, it causes commotion."
But an IMG spokesperson disagreed, "The drop-off at 65th Street is the safest. There is no area backstage for them to hang out, so they get in the way of people working."
Either way, the stars were out in full force at the Hilfiger show including Jennifer Lopez, Ed Westwick, Jessica Szohr, Lenny Kravitz, Bradley Cooper and Jason Lewis.
Oh celebrities — you're just SO important that everyone needs to fight over you!
