Ben Grimes violated by Heathrow airport

12 November 2008


First it was Naomi Campbell and her lost luggage and now we can report yet another British model has fallen foul of Heathrow airport. In her new role as a fashion designer, Ben Grimes was due to debut her new label, LPBG, last week but had to delay, when her entire S/S ‘09 collection got lost in customs. Ben told us the sorry tale over a glass of Laurent Perrier Rose at the 10th Anniversary of Claridge's bar last night. ‘It was awful, everything got held up for four days. I was on the phone to them in tears, screaming - I felt violated!' Luckily everything was returned in one piece and we can expect to see the beautiful creations from Ben Grimes and her friend Lily Parker (who has worked with Henry Holland and Christopher Kane) any day now. Here's hoping it's as stylish as those two...
