Kelly Cutrone On Sinful Shopping

Reality TV star and fashion PR maven Kelly Cutrone chats about the cultural impact of reality TV and the fashion industry... and warns against the perils of "retail therapy".

In the clip, Cutrone issues a stern warning to fashionistas everywhere:

On Consumer Lust and Sinful Shopping
'The first of the seven deadly sins is 'luxuria', which in Latin means lust. So, when we talk about the 'luxury brand' business... people should be careful about what they buy. They should buy something because they want to and because they can. They shouldn't do it because they can't afford their rent but they think it's gonna make them a supermodel... because if you go buy a Hermes bag, it's not going to make you a supermodel if you're 5' 2".'
