    The husband of supermodel Heidi Mount has been arrested over allegations he raped a woman during London Fashion Week, it emerged yesterday.
    Shawn Mount, 30, who is married to the Chanel model, is accused of sexually assaulting the female at a West London hotel.
    The hair stylist, who has worked for Vogue and on ad campaigns for Ralph Lauren, strenuously denies carrying out the attack.
    Mount's wife was on an assignment in Milan when the alleged incident happened.
    Mount was arrested and interviewed at a central London police station. Pending further inquiries, he was bailed until November 10.
    Scenes of crime experts and detectives spent days examining the room where the attack is alleged to have happened. It is believed linen and other items were taken away for analysis.
    Meanwhile, the alleged victim has been interviewed by specialist sex crimes detectives from the Sapphire unit.

    A Scotland Yard spokesman said: 'We received a complaint of a serious sexual assault at 1.30am on September 20 at a central London hotel.

    'The victim was referred to a victim support centre. A 30-year-old man was arrested on September 21 on suspicion of rape and bailed to return to a London police station in November. He has not been charged and we are still investigating.'

    For years, Heidi Mount has quietly been climbing her way to fame.

    Her career kicked off in 2003, after catwalking for some of the biggest names in Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear including Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Viktor & Rolf and Christian Dior.
    After taking a break from modelling, during which she got married and gave birth to her first child, she made a stunning return and is seen on the catwalks of all the couture shows.
    In 2008, the American beauty became the face of Armarni Jeans, Bally and Prada. But it was later that same year, when the model became the face of Chanel, superseding Claudia Schiffer, that she shot to true international stardom.
    Described as 'elegant and charismatic', Heidi Mount was born Heidi Whitworth in Salt Lake City in 1987 in 1987. She was discovered at age 12 at a concert with her mother and her sister.

    my god it is so awful - one of the worst things to happened. I hope that is either not truth (but it looks quite bad - all those things taken from hotel and all) or it will not break down her.

    Somehow its even sadder that they know the victim. I'm curious to see how this pans out and hope justice is served.

    How terrible!

    A rape is so hard to prove. I hope justice will prevail anyway.

    I feel sorry for Heidi. Makes me wonder what`s worse to a wife - a husband who is a cheater or a rapist...??? :o

    (I assume the victim wouldn`t have reported to the police if she didn`t have DNA-prove on her body so there must have been a sexual contact.)

    More details:

    Model accuses hair stylist of rape during London Fashion Week

    A top model has accused the husband of a rival fashion model of sexually assaulting her during London Fashion Week.
    New York hair stylist Shawn Mount, 30 -- who is married to Karl Lagerfeld muse and face of Chanel Heidi Mount -- was questioned by British police over the alleged attack on another 24-year-old model, whom we have agreed not to name, in a central London hotel room in the early hours of Sept. 20.
    Shawn, who has styled for Vogue and ad campaigns for Ralph Lauren, was in London primping models for the runway shows. He was arrested and released on police bail to work at Milan's fashion week.

    A Scotland Yard spokesman told us: "We received a complaint of a serious sexual assault at 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 20 at a central London hotel. The 24-year-old victim was referred to the Haven Centre [which helps alleged victims of sexual assaults.] A 30-year-old man was arrested on Sept. 21 on suspicion of rape and bailed to return to a London police station in November. He has not been charged and we are still investigating."
    The details of the woman's allegations have not been released by police, but sources tell us both Mount and his wife, who was in Milan at the time of the alleged attack, know the alleged victim.
    A source told us: "This is devastating for both women. Shawn denies the allegation."
    A rep for the alleged victim declined to comment. Mount did not respond to e-mails or calls. A spokeswoman at his agency, Artlist New York, declined to comment.
    Heidi -- who replaced Claudia Schiffer as the face of Chanel in 2009, models for Dolce & Gabbana and has walked in runway shows for Michael Kors, Dior, Givenchy and Valentino -- married Shawn in 2007. They have a 3-year-old son and live in the East Village. Her rep also declined to comment.

    Means nothing until the results come back.

    Don't assume anything. False allegations are made more often than people like to think.

    Nope.

    You should keep an open mind until the lab results come back and see if charges are filed.

    1 - True but the evidence has to be taken, so I don't see the point of you saying this

    2 - True but but it also goes both ways - So many things are reported that are TRUE
