Stylist Jessica Paster nearly left the Lauren Conrad show, after feeling disrespected and disturbed by the people populating Smashbox. She told WWD: “They had no idea who I was and had me seated in the fourth row...I get treated with more respect in Europe than I do in my own hometown. Three-quarters of the people there are wannabes, nightlife weirdos and people without jobs. If they targeted the people in the industry and did their homework, we would have been a little more successful...Why was there no one wrangling Rachel Zoe or key publicists? People who actually have an impact on fashion? They value front-row pictures of Penthouse Pets and ‘The Girls Next Door’ [the E! Network show about Playboy bunnies] more." [WWD, subscription req]
