Imagine this scenario: You’re the head of PR for a huge design house and in charge of getting your label’s Oscar dresses to L.A. for a very important celebrity fitting. Then somehow the gowns get lost in transit, less than a week before the big show. That’s exactly what happened to Donna Karan’s publicist Aliza Licht (aka: one of our favorite people on social media). And of course, Licht documented the whole fiasco on Twitter.
For us, reading the string of Tweets was like a non-stop action film. Will the LAX airport staff find the gowns? Will they make it to the celebrity on time? What happens if they don’t? Are we going to see a star in some stapled-together satin? (And why does this happen to designers so often?) Seriously, it was touch-and-go for a while.
We also really want to know who “Celeb X” is. We have a few guesses, but mainly we want to hear your predictions. First read the “Adventures of the Donna Karan Oscar Dresses” saga below. Then share your thoughts in the comments!
