“Truly Appalling”: Amy Adams’ Rep Slams Valentino Following Philip Seymour Hoffman Death PR Stunt
“We are pleased to announce Amy Adams carrying the Valentino Garavany Rockstud Duble bag from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on Feb. 6 in New York,” read an email that went out Friday morning from Upasna Khosla, Valentino’s celebrity relations manager.
The email understandably caused outrage which lead to Valentino apologizing 24 hours later, saying it didn’t realize where Adams was going in the photos.
“We sincerely regret releasing a photo to the media this morning of Amy Adams with a Valentino bag. We were not aware the photograph was taken while she was attending the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was an innocent mistake, and we apologize to Ms. Adams who was not aware, or a part of, our p.r. efforts.”
Valentino has insisted that Khosla will not be fired.
