Paris Jackson reportedly stormed out of a Paris, France, fashion show “in a rage.”
via Page Six:
At the Dior cruise collection show on Friday at a chateau, driving rain dramatically doused the catwalk — and dampened some attendees’ spirits. As the first model hit the catwalk, Jackson walked out on the show that ambitiously recreated a Mexican rodeo with all-female riders performing daredevil stunts. But a source told us Jackson left the show because she disapproved of the performing animals.
WWD reported, “With guests held up in rush hour traffic, the show finally began just as sheets of rain started driving down.”
Another report said, “Glowering clouds broke into a thunderstorm as the show opened, sending models on to a catwalk slick with driving rain.”
But the New York Times further observed in its fashion review that, “By the end, the only cloud that remained over the event was the jarring exit of Paris Jackson, who had pranced in puddles barefoot for the photographers before the show, but stalked out in a rage as the first model made her way down the runway.”
WWD added in a review that Jackson visibly, “huffed out barefoot, having earlier asked two assistants to help her out of her high-heeled sandals. Whether the issue was animal welfare, or simply an extreme aversion to rain, was not clear.”
And Harper’s Bazaar reported: “Not everyone was a fan of the horses though, as Paris Jackson was spotted leaving the show only minutes in, presumably out of concern for animal welfare.”
Paris hasn’t addressed the situation directly, but she did share the following photo on social media.
