Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 613
Chapter 613: The Same Purple Gown
Meng Meimei’s assistant was shocked. “These people look like ‘Clearshadow’, a famous team of makeup artists.”
Meng Meimei abruptly turned around and gritted her teeth. “Did Qiao Xi use the Xu family’s connections? Otherwise, how could she have invited such a famous makeup team?
“B*tch! Not only did you steal Anran’s identity, but you even want to steal my limelight!”
The assistant frowned. She wanted to say that Xu Anran was not a good person. If she really hated Qiao Xi, why didn’t she deal with Qiao Xi herself but instead incited Meng Meimei to do it?
An hour later, all the models were done with their makeup. The director informed all the crew members to get ready. The shoot would officially begin in 20 minutes.
The models lifted their gowns and walked out of the dressing room. Meng Meimei also walked out in a purple gown and raised her head arrogantly. However—
“Wait! Why are you wearing the same color as me?”
The gown designed by Li Xing’er was also a purple long gown. It had passed the internal selection two months before the show started, and the judges all gave it high scores.
Now that Qiao Xi was wearing this dress, her fair skin and curvaceous figure added more vibrancy to this dress. She was so beautiful that one couldn’t take their eyes off her.
At this moment, Meng Meimei walked up to Qiao Xi angrily and glared at her fiercely. “Why are you wearing purple?”
The atmosphere instantly became awkward. Everyone lowered their heads and didn’t dare to make a sound. Everyone knew Meng Meimei’s identity, so no one dared to offend her.
The assistant director had just returned from outside and didn’t know that Meng Meimei had been replaced. He hurriedly came over to persuade her. “Miss Meng, please calm down. It’s just a small matter. Although it’s the same color, the style is completely different. It won’t affect the filming at all.”
“A small matter? Who is she to wear the same color as me?”
Meng Meimei said angrily. Then, she angrily threw her handbag on the ground and looked at Qiao Xi viciously. “I order you to take off your clothes! Now! Immediately!”
The entire place was silent.
Qiao Xi patted Li Xing’er’s hand to assure her and asked indifferently, “Why?”
“Why? Because I’m a senior and you’re just a model! I’m an A-list celebrity and a special guest, while you’re just an amateur model! Do you think you deserve to wear the same color as me?”
“When did Miss Meng hand her gown to the production team?”
Meng Meimei said disdainfully, “I’m different from you guys. As long as I bring a gown over, it’s automatically approved.”
Qiao Xi said unhurriedly, “But Xing’er’s gown was already approved two months ago. The production team didn’t say that there was anything wrong with the gown.”
What she meant was that even the production team said that there was no problem, so why was Meng Meimei kicking up a fuss?
Even if the production team had requested that there should not be any clashing colors, it was Li Xing’er who submitted her gown first. Everything was first come, first served. By right, Meng Mei should be the one changing her gown.
Meng Meimei pointed at Qiao Xi and gnashed her teeth in anger. “You, what do you mean by that?! I told you to take it off. Are you deaf? The production team doesn’t have the final say. If I tell you to take it off, you have to!”
The manager also stood up and snorted. “Miss Qiao, since you’re here to participate in the competition, you should know the rules. Meimei is your senior, so how can you wear the same color as her?”
Then she scolded Li Xing’er, “You must be a new designer too! Let me remind you, if you want to survive in this industry, don’t offend our Meimei. Otherwise, you’ll have to bear the consequences!”
The manager was sure that Li Xing’er was just a small designer without any background. If she had a background, she would not have come to participate in this kind of show as just a regular designer.
Li Xing’er clenched her fists. No one had ever dared to threaten her like this.
Qiao Xi’s expression was indifferent. “Miss Meng, I would like to ask who set the rule that we can’t wear the same color? If you feel that it’s inappropriate, you can ask the judges or the production team to give the final say. Moreover, although our gowns have similar colors, the style is completely different.
“Could it be that you have the right to change the rules of the program? If that’s the case, why would we need to participate in the program at all?”
As soon as these words were spoken, the air seemed to have almost frozen. The atmosphere became oppressive. Even though everyone disliked Meng Mei, no one dared to stand up for Qiao Xi.
