NEW YORK — Mark Lee, chief executive officer of Barneys New York, said Tuesday at a press conference at National Action Network headquarters in Harlem that his store’s personnel weren’t responsible for detaining and questioning two black customers for alleged credit card fraud after making luxury purchases at the store.
“Our preliminary investigation concluded that in both of these instances, no one from Barneys New York raised an issue with the purchases, brought them to the attention of internal security or reached out to the authorities,” said Lee. He acknowledged that no one should go through the unacceptable experiences described by Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips in recent media reports, “and we offer our deepest sympathies to them both.”
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
