• Oh snap, y’all! So the real tea is, a PR from the HL Group got slapped in the face at the Zac Posen show on Sunday! The New York Fire department removed 60 seats from the blacony at Avery Fisher hall where the show was held, temporarily leaving 60 showgoers, including Marie-José Susskind-Jalou, (president of Jalou publishing house,) and her daughters, Jennifer Eymere and Vanessa Bellugeon of Jalouse and L’Officiel magazines without seats. While no one knows exactly who did the slapping, at the end of the day, HL Group PR Lynn Tesoro was hit in the face. According to WWD: “Some say it was Susskind-Jalou who did the smacking, though Eymere, when reached in her hotel Monday, took full credit for it (and not without pride in her action). She claimed Tesoro was being inappropriate to her mother, saying that she first had to seat other people. ‘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,’ she added. ‘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–k with French people.’” If this ain’t pure ratchetness, I don’t know what is. (WWD)

• Louise Gray is teaming up with none other than Barbie this season! Not only are the folks at Mattel sponsoring Gray’s runway show, but the designer will send three looks down the runway inspired by the iconic blonde. Of the partnership, Gray says, “My clothes are always about colour and fun – making a bold statement through the way you dress. I wanted to see Barbie® in some separates and layer up her look, giving her a different way to be girly and fun, than how people are used to seeing her.” (Grazia)
