“I never, growing up, had anything designer,” she said in the interview. “My mom wouldn’t let me. I think I got my first pair of Louboutins when I graduated high school.”
Referring to a photo of herself wearing designer clothing, lei ha aggiunto: “It makes me emotional actually, because I’m so happy in this picture, for the first time in my whole adult life.”
Dopo un Tic toc featuring the clip from the interview began circulating on the popular app, the moment went viral.
Nei commenti, the model admitted that her anecdote was “a bad story to tell.”
“The context of this was that a lot of people think I grew up buying and wearing designer things…” iniziò.
“I never take anything I’ve ever had for granted& I feel undeserving of it at all times…” lei scrisse. “But I wore this same pair of shoes, that were given to me as a gift, for the first three years of my career. To every job, every go-see or meeting. The metal is all that’s left at the bottom of the heel.”
Ha continuato: “I’m sorry it sounded pathetic, ma 1. Bad story to tell and 2. sono d'accordo, I can’t listen to myself talk either.”
Her statement came after she got a fair amount of flack from viewers for her comments.
“Girl I’m 25 and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pair [of Louboutins] in person,” ne ha scritto uno.
