Stacey Bendet doesn't need @diet_prada to call out her copycats - she'll do it herself, in person, thank you very much.
On Monday, the Alice + Olivia designer and CEO took to social media to share videos of a run-in with Steve Madden in a hotel lobby, where she apparently confronted him about his history of ripping off her "StaceFace" designs via the brand Betsey Johnson, which Madden owns.
Bendet publicly filed a lawsuit against Betsey Johnson and its parent company back in 2018, when Bendet claims Madden said, "If I’m not getting sued, I’m not doing my job."
On video, she brought it all back up to him. His response? "You can go f*ck yourself if you're going to be rude to me." To make it worse, Bendet says her four-year-old was standing next to her when he went off. Yikes.
Watch the exchange, and Bendet's reaction in her Instagram stories, below:
