If you haven’t heard about the recent scandal surrounding David Jones, let me sum it up for you nice and short and sweet:
Miranda Kerr got married & then it was announced she was pregnant, meaning that she could not be the face of the David Jones launch, cancelling to enjoy being Mrs Bloom and honeymooning
After she pulled out DJs decide do spend lots and lots and lots of money to fly elite Australian models in. Think Abbey-Lee Kershaw, Nicole Trunfio, Catherine McNeil, Alexandra Agoston and Samantha Harris.
The day before the launch, a former employee kicked off a $37million lawsuit against one of the big boys for sexual harassment.
The guy she was filing it against Mark McIInes, resigned.
Then Alannah Hill decided to throw some offhand comment out there such as she wished Mark had felt her up and that she threw herself at him, and that the lawsuit was just a glitch
THEN ( I know, its not over yet) she said that her way of apologising would be to hold a “Sorry Sale” and donate half the proceeds to a women’s charity who support people who have been sexually abused.
I know, so much to it all! What great publicity for Djs though! And even Alannah Hill, although those saying it was a publicity stunt need to realise thats very much Ms Hill. She often comes out with comments and out there remarks that people wouldn’t normally say! The launch was good though, with Aussie hotties strutting their stuff.
