Size 42 shoes, alcohol, and a lot of nerves. Andre Tan shocked with a story about Paris Hilton's arrival in Kyiv
The famous Ukrainian designer Andre Tan shared a story that happened in 2011. The fashion designer invited American socialite Paris Hilton to Kyiv to take part in his fashion show.
However, things did not go as well as he would have liked. A PR stunt involving a famous celebrity almost ended in a nervous breakdown for Andre Tan, he said on his Instagram page.
The designer admits that he still can't understand how he decided to take such a step, because at the time it seemed incredible. It was a great PR move for the Ukrainian brand, which became a kind of revolution in the domestic fashion world.
However, it cost the fashion designer her nerve cells, because after the famous American arrived in Kyiv, she was unhappy with absolutely everything. "Paris didn't like everything - the makeup artist, the hairdresser. We couldn't find her shoes in size 42," said Andre Tan.
According to the plan, Hilton was supposed to walk the runway wearing white pants and a vest. However, after trying on the outfit, the star rejected it because it exposed her stomach. The designer had to make a new outfit overnight. "It was quite a night... When I think back, it gives me the creeps," he added.
After the screening, the star guest threw a loud party where she drank too much. "And I had to clean up the mess... I don't know how I managed to keep my hair that day," the Ukrainian recalls.
