Designer Flips as Ashley Dupre Crashes Fashion Show

She may not be charging elected officials $4,300 to bone her, then giving tear-jerking interviews with Diane Sawyer, but Ashley Dupre is still up for causing drama here and there in New York City, according to the city's newspapers.

The scene: the hooker-turned-famous-ex-hooker somehow landed in the front row of designer Yigal Azrouël’s Fall/Winter 2009 fashion show this week.

When Azrouël discovered the skank in her seat, he flipped and fired his PR person who placed her there. Turns out that PR flack is none other than Kelly Cutrone of People’s Revolution, best known as Whitney’s boss on The Hills.

Apparently the sex-selling singer and the PR individual know each other, admitted Kelly Cutrone, who also appeared on The City: “I didn’t invite her, but I wasn’t going to kick her out or turn her away... We know one another, we’re friends.”

Cutrone also insisted that such publicity would not just have been tolerated - it would have been warmly received by other fashion designers:

“If Ashley Dupre had shown up at Marc Jacobs’ show he would have been a hero,” she said. “It would have been cutting-edge - but Yigal and she weren’t the best fit.”
