How to lose celeb friends and alienate people- Nina Ricci Style

Let's say you're a top designer or the manager of a prestigious fashion house. Who are the celebs and A-listers you REALLY don't want to be mad at you?

Now, how many of you have Sarah Jessica Parker on your list?

Apparently, neither Olivier Theyskens, the Nina Ricci designer, nor Mario Grauso, the president of the fashion division at Puig, which owns Nina Ricci, share this idea. The full story is here, but basically, when Sarah Jessica Parker came to Nina Ricci to get a dress for the NYC premier of Sex And The City, she requested something that hasn't been worn and photographed in public by someone else. It might seem a bit ridiculous to us mortals who buy off-the-rack, but for a celeb who wears couture at a major event, it actually makes sense.

The problem?

The picture above shows Olivier Theyskens with NY socialite Lauren Santo Domingo at the Met's Costume Institute ball early last month, and, yes, it's that dress.

I think I know whose creation SJP won't be wearing for her next big event.
