Celebrity stylist Mariel Haenn is under fire for dressing her client Willow Smith in a knock off at the AMAs.
When asked about seeing the copycat on the red carpet, designer Mildred Von Hildegard said:
I’m disappointed and saddened that this will negatively impact my business. My original design is now recognized in the mass media as someone else’s work, and it’s very hurtful on both a personal and professional levels. I hope this can be resolved, and I wish nothing but the best to Willow.
In an email, Mariel denied having anything to do with Willow this weekend: "To be honest I have no idea who ‘styled’ her or the designer. Wish I did. I don’t ask my clients who they used when I’m not available."
Kind of defensive for someone who wasn't involved, no?
