OK, let's get right into it: Anna O’Brien is a 33-year-old, NYC-based lifestyle blogger and founder of the site Glitter and Lazers. On Tuesday, she claims she was in Vegas shooting a swim lookbook in the lobby an undisclosed hotel after receiving permission and confirmation from said hotel's PR team. Things went south from there.
According to Yahoo, Anna says she was allowed to shoot anywhere but the casino floor, so she proceeded to pose for her first look - a bikini - in the grandly decorated entry. But after she had taken just a few shots with her professional photographer, she claims a security guard came and told her to put something over her suit.
"He told me to cover up, that I needed to put clothes on because I wasn’t allowed to be in a swimsuit," she told Yahoo. "I tried talking to him but he wouldn’t listen." Here's what she was wearing, BTW:
Frustrated, Anna and her photographer headed back up to her room, put on a one-piece suit, and tried again.
Then: “We were shooting in a different part of the lobby and another guard approached us and told us to stop,” she said. “I showed him the emails from the PR team but it didn’t make a difference. I didn’t like the assumption that I was lying about having permission. What did I do to indicate that I wasn’t worthy of trust and respect?”
