It takes a lot to upstage this

Though not quite the scale of this brawl (which, for the record, also involved a French publishing scion), the confirmed face-slapping incident that went down at Zac Posen's show on Sunday is upstaging even Naomi Campbell's runway cameo... which is saying something.

According to WWD, Jennifer Eymere, daughter of Jalou publishing house president Marie-José Susskind-Jalou, is taking credit for the slap, which was directed at HL Group co-founder Lynn Tesoro:

"I am sorry, I know it's bad to do that," she told the publicataion. "It was a small slap. It was not strong. I didn't hurt her, it was just to humiliate her. She humiliated my mom, and I humiliated her in front of her crew. Voilà. I just said at the end, 'Now you know you don't f--k with French people.'"
