Whitney Port Is Asking Her Fans To Pay For Her S/S13 Show

Despite her role on 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model', it wouldn't be too harsh to say that Whitney Port's career hasn't ever shone quite as brightly as it did during her time on 'The City'. While she continues to design for her brand, Whitney Eve, it hasn't been doing too well and now she's asking her fans to pay for her New York show.

In the short video appeal the fund raising campaign is framed as an innovative way to allow her fans to be part of the creation of her show when in actual fact, it seems like nothing more than a way of finding money to fund the show. 'Oftentimes, I have fans asking me how they can break into the fashion business or how they can learn more about runway show production,' she said in a statement. 'I think this campaign is a great way to provide my fans a behind-the-scenes experience on how a large show is designed.' Depending on how much you donate you can get everything from a shout out on Facebook to being able to sit front row at the show.

Not matter how much she tries to spin this, it all feels a bit disingenuous to me. What do you think?
