Lady Gaga's stylist and Dazed & Confused creative director Nicola Formichetti: "I was the biggest Vivienne Westwood fan. So I started working at her store. I used to steal a lot of things there. One day, the manager told me, 'People have been stealing. We now have to check everyone before the leave the store.' That day, I had a bag full of accessories. So I threw it into the bin. My plan was to wait for the cleaning lady to throw the bins outside, and then to retrieve the bag. She came 30 minutes after closing. And just when I was ransacking the bins, I saw my manager watching me. He started yelling: 'You will never work here again.' [Laughs.]" [Fashionologie]
