Remember back last-last February when The City wasn't canceled and Kelly Cutrone met Whitney Port's "friends"—including Allie Crandell (above)—and told her she looked really skinny and probably needed to eat a cupcake? Well, looks like that drama is still playing out in real life, off camera.
The Huffington Post reports that online retailer Revolve Clothing has heard from customers and expressed its own concerns over Crandell, who's a regular on the site, and her weight. In the comments section of this BCBGMaxAzria dress, shoppers expressed their concern and outrage. Revolve responded:
Hi everyone,Thank you for your concern. We are absolutely aware ofthe feedback and responses to our model’s weight and it has concerned us as well. We are working closely with both the model and her agent to get her to a healthier size. She won’t be appearing in any of our new product batches or in any of our fashion editorial photos moving forward until the issue is adequately addressed. We appreciate and respect input from our customers and visitors and hope that you find our responses satisfying. We have been attempting to respect the privacy of the model in question while dealing with the issue on our end. We hope you understand.Sincerely,The REVOLVE Team· Allie Crandell Sidelined By Revolve Clothing Over Weight Concerns [HuffPo]
