Siriano Scam

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Someone truly evil has been posting on Craigslist advertising for models for Christian Siriano's catalog—but it's not Siriano or anyone associated with the company. Our sister site Racked NY says: "Siriano is fighting back. A rep told Fashionista that his team became aware of the scams after suspicious would-be models started calling the company, asking whether the casting call was for real. They contacted Craigslist and "the authorities" (we're guessing that means the cops, though we sort of love the idea of a CFDA SWAT team), and they've issued a statement urging models to avoid Craigslist for appointments. After all, that's what modeling agencies are for." [RNY]
