    You do not have to be a multi millionaire to get the black Amex, I believe it is just over 100 thousand in purchases a year to qualify...unless they changed shit in the past 5 years. I'm too lazy to check from my phone.

    lI do believe that sales -people can be rude and pretentious like they own the stuff in the store and others are super-friendly and helpful regardless of your race of what you wear.

    My two cents on this one : rude sales assistant that could not be bothered to reach high for that ugly bag that she thinks, at that price, no-one will buy anyway and Oprah with the new movie coming out, a bit extra publicity never hurts.

    It was all over the newspapers that Tina Turner got married. No way the sales people didn't know town was full of guests.

    At the airline counter the saleswomen told me once the flight change I wanted was too expensive, I was like 'Yes but how much' and she really replied: 'No no it is too much"!

    I remember being in NYC, possibly Macys, looking at Herve Leger dresses with my Mum. We were there for my 21st birthday and she said I could have one (don't judge me). In the relative scheme of fashion, they aren't even that expensive (around $1000-2000), but I remember the guard giving me the dirtiest look imaginable. Totally giving me the side eye, as if I was going to just grab it off the rail and run. Or my greasy fingers were ruining the clothes. Horrible feeling. I decided I didn't want my Mum to spend that much money on one item of clothing that I probably would only wear a couple of times, so we left. But it certainly didn't help that the atmosphere there was uncomfortable. I didn't even try any on.

    That story makes me sound like something off "My Sweet Sixteen", can I add I'm not a twat?

    Damn it! For some reason I can't get articles to copy/paste today. Sorry about the link.

    LOL, 2000$ isn't cheap but it's not 35000$.
    I am the opposite, I've been totally ignored or been eyed up and down in shops by sales people. Some are so pretentious and then I really make them work. Like try on everything and asking for different sizes. Yes I was born a bitch).
    But also have been offered a drink (at Prada) while shopping with my husband who had holes in his shoes. I was so embarrassed but the sales-woman was super friendly.

    " Outside, people usually press their noses flat against the windows to see me shopping."


    statements like this are a tiny little part of why i hate her.

    'To be honest, if I had known upfront what this damned bag cost, do you know what? The woman was right: I would not have bought the thing - far too expensive! Too expensive! $38,000! I would have fainted when I saw the price tag.'

    I love how she's backpeddling like mad. She's all over the place. She probably realized that her fan based balked in sympathy when they realized the price of the bag.

    I'm also unsure as to what she thought to achieve by calling Tom Ford or Jennifer Aniston. Unless it was all about name dropping in the interview.

    I do not see her fan based balking at anything. I see the conversation of subtle racism being elevated.

    The article states she was going to call Jen because the bag is named after her in the collection.
