Christine Quinn was “seriously injured” by the fashion house’s snub | Entertainment and celebrity news

Christine Quinn was “seriously hurt” when a “major fashion house” refused to let her attend their show because of her reality TV past.

The ‘Selling Sunset’ star’s ‘greatest passion’ is fashion and she recalled being devastated by the snub – only to have the last laugh when she wore the no-name firm during a shoot major picture in a magazine last year.

She said: “Fashion is my biggest passion. I live and breathe fashion. I feel like I came from reality TV, I had to work even harder to be taken seriously.

“I remember two years ago during Fashion Week I was turned down by a big fashion house because they said, ‘We don’t work with reality TV stars’ It hurt a lot because I was a big fan of the brand.”

Referring to her Sunday Times Style shoot – for which she wore brands including Versace, Dolce Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Michael Kors Collection, Gauge81, Wolford and Carven – she added: “Fast forward to the cover of The Sunday Times Style, and the photo they chose for the cover I wore was from the same fashion house that had previously refused my entry.Soon after the cover was published, they posted the photo on their Instagram.

Christine thinks fashion houses have changed their attitude towards her lately because they respect the way she works “extremely hard”.

She added to Grazia USA: “Since then I’ve been embraced with open arms because I don’t expect anything to fall into my lap. I work extremely hard and I’m so thankful that all my years of hard work are finally beginning to be recognized.”

The 33-year-old star made her runway debut at Balenciaga’s couture show in Paris last month and she felt “honoured” to be part of the show but wasn’t nervous walking for the first time in such a prestigious event.

She said: “The Balenciaga show took a long time to prepare. I work very hard to hustle myself in silence and show my hard work. It’s all in the element of surprise. I’ve been a fan of Balenciaga for so many years, so to be Demna’s muse and to walk on her show, I felt honored but at home.”
