Jeanine Lobell Was Once Fired for Not Wearing Pantyhose

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.

Although she's a beauty-industry doyenne now, Stila founder Jeanine Lobell was once fired from her job at a Chanel makeup counter for - gasp! - not wearing pantyhose. She tells Into the Gloss that it was just an excuse, since the store manager had it out for her. Still, since some of us at Racked HQ were raised to never leave the house without pantyhose and others think they're a relic of a time best forgotten, we can't decide whether stockings should be standard or not.
