Smells Like Teen Spirit: Hackers break into Fashion Week

Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Looks like the kids have gone overboard, are self assured and watched Hackers far too many times. According to Racked and Gawker, Remy Renzullo and Becca Shumlin allegedly hacked into the database of major fashion PR firm BPCM and placed themselves on the guestlists of some of the most prominent fashion week shows (namely Alexander Wang, Preen, Cushnie et Ochs and Erin Fetherston). And the plot thickens: Becca is the daughter of Vermont State Senate President Peter Shumlin, who is now running for governor! Well you know what they say, bad press is better than no press, so this little scandal just might do his campaign some good. But this isn't the first time our Jolied pair has made a mockery of BPCM; they were in attendance at this past September's Fashion Week, even managing to get snapped by The Sartorialist. I'm curious as to whether or not BPCM will honor their fraudulent activities, seeing how they have become instant Fashion Week public enemies. Honestly, I'm impressed and think these two have some serious moxie. I, for one, hope to see them frolicking around the red velvet ropes but not Becca in those YSL caged heels (it's bloody cold in New York!)
