June Ambrose SLAMMED for Kate Spade flub at CFDA Awards

June Ambrose is usually at the top of her game when it comes to the fashion world but the costume designer made a major flub while hosting the CFDA Awards red carpet at the Brooklyn Museum on Monday night.

While chatting up entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman, she asked if deceased designer, Kate Spade would be attending the event before wondering aloud if she skipped her spot on the red carpet.

Obviously, Ambrose didn’t recall that Kate Spade committed suicide last year, although she referred to her as one of her favorite American designers.

“Are you here with Kate? Is she here?” Ambrose asked.

“I’m here with the Kate Spade New York team,” Bronfman replied after June Ambrose repeated the puzzling quandary.

Of course, viewers went wild on social media and accused Ambrose of being insensitive.
