Sharon Cuneta is snubbed in a Hermès store in South Korea
After being ‘turned away’ at the Hermès store, Sharon ‘bought everything’ at Louis Vuitton instead
MANILA, Philippines — Sharon Cuneta has shared that she was “turned away” from a Hermes store during her recent trip to South Korea.
In a vlog uploaded on Friday, September 30, Sharon shared some clips from her recent vacation in Seoul, South Korea, where she was seen trying Korean food and buying K- pop.
The Megastar also went on a shopping spree in Seoul’s fashion centers. However, Sharon revealed that she was not allowed to enter a Hermès boutique, where she originally wanted to buy a belt.
“It is the same for the construction of the sinturon in Hermes. Ayaw aka papasukin (I just went here to buy a belt from Hermes. But I wasn’t allowed in),” she said in her vlog. Sharon didn’t go into detail about the incident, but did include a clip of her talking to a member of staff at the store. “Denied at the Hermès store,” she captioned her vlog.
She instead went to the nearby store of another luxury brand, Louis Vuitton, where she was accommodated. While shopping for many of the brand’s items, Sharon was also seen talking to some Louis Vuitton staff, who also gave her a bottle of champagne and flowers as gifts. “I have champagne and flowers. Thank you Louis Vuitton. Thank you,” she said.
Carrying her handful of Louis Vuitton purchases, Sharon and her companions walked past the Hermès store and told the staff: “See, I bought everything.”
Following the incident, Sharon also included a clip from the film A pretty woman, where Julia Roberts’ character told the saleswoman who discriminated her that it was a “big mistake”.
This is not the first time Sharon has been turned away while shopping at a luxury store overseas. When he appeared in 2019 in Tonight with Boy Abunda, Sharon revealed that it had happened to her at least three times, including once at the Cartier jewelry store in Hong Kong. The actress recalled that while wearing a plain shirt and jeans, she inquired about an item, but was denied attendance by a sales rep. – Rappler.com
