Did Chanel employees commit a social faux pas?? Sounds like it. The newly slimmed down Gabourey Sidibe recently recounted a negative experience while shopping at the pricey retail store in an essay for Lena Duhaam’s Lenny Letter. The Empire star claims she was looking at items for herself and co-star Taraji P. Henson when the scandal went down.

When Gabby approached the case filled with sunglasses the employee immediately directed her to a store across the street.

“I had been at her display for less than a minute, and she was literally directing me to another store,” Sidibe wrote. “She had decided after a single look at me that I wasn’t there to spend any money. Even though I was carrying a Chanel bag, she decided I wasn’t a Chanel customer and so, not worth her time and energy.”


It wasn’t until other store employees noticed who Gabourey was that she says the clerk showed her some service and respect.

Gabourey admits that this isn’t the first time she’s been profiled while shopping at a high-end store. “No matter how dressed up I get, I’m never going to be able to dress up my skin color to look like what certain people perceive to be an actual customer,” she wrote. “Depending on the store, I either look like a thief or a waste of time.”

Luckily, Gabby had her Pretty Woman moment, and got her revenge by being famous and fabulous!

As a cherry on top, CHANEL has now issued a statement about the embarrassing incident:

“We took her words very seriously and immediately investigated to understand what happened. Knowing that this is absolutely not in line with the high standards that Chanel wishes to provide to our customers.”

Published

Looks like Halle Berry is letting her freak flag fly in 2018.

The Oscar winning actress attended the NAACP Image Awards ceremony on Monday wearing a Reem Acra gown that left very little to the imagination.

The lacy red and black dress featured a sheer panel in both the front and back just barely covering Berry’s vagina.

Berry isn’t the first to bare vajayjay cleavage on the carpet tho. Remember Chrissy Teigen at the 2016 AMA’s? But, the 51-year-old actress does seem to be into sheer ensembles as of late.

Just last week at the Golden Globes she rocked black like the rest of the guest, but showed some serious skin.

Last year while promoting the Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Berry rock a super sexy sheer number on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

And got cheeky at the film’s world premiere in London rocking this Elie Saab gown.

But nothing probably takes the cake, pun intended, like that white sheer ensemble Berry was photographed in back March 2017.

She had tongues wagging when she posted this photo on Instagram with the caption,  “Me when someone says ‘I’m coming over and I’ve got snacks.”
