Fashion Week drama! Shawn Mount, the husband of Chanel model Heidi Mount, was arrested last week after an alleged sexual assault on a 24-year-old at London Fashion Week. Police say Shawn Mount, a hairstylist who has worked for Vogue and Ralph Lauren, is accused of raping the woman in a five-star hotel in central London in the middle of the night on September 20. The woman reported the incident the next day; Mount, 30, was arrested and released on bail. His wife, Heidi Mount, 23, has modeled for a bunch of major designers, including Chanel, Armani Jeans, Bally, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Viktor & Rolf, and Christian Dior. She was on assignment in Milan when the alleged attack occurred.
Both Mounts refuse to comment on the incident, but the husband denied the rape ever happened. This would totally suck if it’s true, though — not only for the alleged victim, but for the Mounts’ 3-year-old child. Eeek.
