Well, this is awkward … and a bit insensitive. Fashion stylist to the stars, June Ambrose, was tapped to host the Facebook Live-stream for the CFDA Awards red carpet. Ambrose is a vet out here in these fashion streets, so the choice wasn’t an odd one, but one major blunder during her interviews certainly made her look more like a rookie than a pro.
During a quick chat with influencer Hannah Bronfman, June asked the age old question, who are you wearing? Brofman stated Kate Spade and that’s when things took a turn down awkward street. Ambrose repeatedly asked if Kate was coming, or had she already arrived, seemingly unaware that the designer had died by suicide just a year ago.
Thankfully, Hannah responded gracefully, “I’m here with Kate … Well, the team from Kate is here, and we’re four total.” Still, it’s painful to watch.
Finally acknowledging her blunder, June took to Twitter Tuesday morning to apologize for what she called, “an error.”
Good morning I want to address an error I made last night while hosting the CFDA red carpet. I sincerely apologize to the family and friends of the late Kate Spade, in addition to the team at Kate Spade for having misspoken. I made a mistake and I’m sorry to those I offended.
