Top hairstylist accused of rape
The eyes of the fashion world may have moved away from UK’s capital but that hasn’t stopped London Fashion Week from remaining in the headlines. The New York Post reports that a top model has accused hair stylist Shawn Mount of serious sexual assault.
Shawn, who is married to supermodel Heidi Mount, has been questioned by British police over the alleged attack and has been released on bail to allow him to work at Milan fashion week. A Scotland Yard spokesman told the New York Post: ‘We received a complaint of a serious sexual assault at 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 20 at a central London hotel. The 24-year-old victim was referred to the Haven Centre. A 30-year-old man was arrested on Sept. 21 on suspicion of rape and bailed to return to a London police station in November. He has not been charged and we are still investigating.’
Heidi Mount is well known as the current face of Chanel, and muse to Karl Lagerfeld. She and Shawn live together in New York with their 3 year old son.
