Did Victoria Beckham Serve Faux-Nuts?
Fashion designer Victoria Beckham treated her backstage crew to an order of Cronuts on Sunday after her Spring/Summer 2014 show. She tweeted a picture of the pastries with the caption “Breakfast! Cronuts x vb.”
But on Tuesday, Dominique Ansel—the creator of the original croissant/donut combination—tweeted that the Cronuts Beckham served were actually fakes. Ansel tweeted: "Who tricked @victoriabeckham into thinking those knockoffs were the real Cronut™? An intern who overslept and didn't wait in line? Hope not." Beckham has not singled anyone out as the culprit behind the Cronut knock-off, nor did she disclose if she actually ate any of the fake pastries herself.
