Victoria Beckham appears to be the victim of Cronut fraud. Yesterday, the designer and everybody's favorite former Spice Girl tweeted a picture of an alleged dozen Cronuts before her spring 2014 show.
Dominique Ansel swiftly replied: "Who tricked @victoriabeckham into thinking those knockoffs were the real Cronut™? An intern who overslept and didn't wait in line? Hope not."
We hope not either, because VB will have their heads faster than you can say "the li'l Gucci dress." She has yet to, and probably won't, respond—her most recent tweet was three hours ago, and it involved "cute jacquards".
