I'm honestly not shocked wouldn't it be because of Marc Jacob's name. As many have mentioned already, his despicable attitude and ignorant personality have always shined through.
That models don't get paid for walking fashion shows is nothing new but that they don't even earn a penny by working side on side with the designer is an unacceptable thing.
Hailey probably got one of the most unthankful jobs as that of working as a fitting model. I remember an interview of Karmen Pedaru talking about her beginning in the fashion business. She started as Stella McCartney's fitting model and later said that it was one of the hardest jobs she has ever had due to the long working hours, short breaks and the continous standing (which made her faint a couple of times). It is far from being as exciting as a fashion show or rewarding as an editorial shoot.
Hailey's reaction looked pretty naive to me and as if she'd downplay the whole situation. Which is most likely because she's just starting to dive into that pseudo dazzling, glamourous fashion world and probably thinks that jobs like that should be taken for granted. And it might be quite a good deal of reputation but definitely does not equal her to get paid nothing.
But what keeps me thinking now; is the new launched Model Alliance going to take action against the case? It is defnitely something that adresses the organisation's purposes and definitely something to debate about.
