TikToker @iamtahira used to work at Barneys New York as a stylist. Like many people on TikTok whose jobs brought them in contact with high-profile celebrities, she has been rating celebrity behavior and sharing all the hot gossip.
In her videos, Tahira rates her encounters at Barney’s with big-name celebrities and she’s gotten a lot of attention for her takedown of actress Anna Kendrick.
Her first TikTok on the topic discussed first Kim Cattrall and Emilia Clarke. Cattrall got a 10 out of 10.
“Love her, she was amazing,” says Tahira. “She had a charity event, she was looking for a dress from Prada. She brought a picture in from Instagram. We actually didn’t have the dress but I told her that I can call my friend at Bergdorf’s to see if they have it, and they had it!”
She says that Cattrall asked Tahira to text her, so she did, telling her that Bergdorf’s was holding the dress.
“I still have her number in my phone,” she added. Imagine having Kim Cattrall’s number and showing any restraint!
She also got to meet Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who she was a huge fan of. Another employee was actually working with Clarke, but knowing Tahira’s love of her, she invited her in to say hi. She also got a ten out of ten rating.
“We talked about her Dolce & Gabbana campaign that just came out,” she says. “I was also six months pregnant at the time, so we talked about motherhood. She was so sweet. Sweetest, sweetest, sweetest, sweetest thing.”
Then at the very end of this TikTok, Tahira mentions Anna Kendrick, rating her -100/10, saying she was a “terrible person.”
This was obviously not enough information for viewers, so Tahira ended up making a couple more posts about why exactly she thinks Anna Kendrick is so awful.
She actually met her at a different store, Club Monaco, where she was touring her book Scrappy Little Nobody in 2016.
“My job was to pull a few look options for her to wear for the signing,” Tahira says. “I’m walking her through the racks, she won’t speak to me— that’s strike one. I’m asking her, ‘Do you want to wear pants? Or do you want to wear a dress?’ She won’t say anything. She turns to her PR lady and her PR lady was like, ‘Can I speak to you outside?’ We go outside and she’s like, ‘If you guys want her to wear a look, $10,000.'”
Club Monaco did not pay her to wear a look.
But Kendrick allegedly wasn’t just rude to Tahira, she was completely indifferent to her fans that showed up for the book promotion. Many brought letters, gifts, and gift cards to Kendrick, who directed the staff to throw them out.
“It was so nice, and all of that went into the trash,” she claims. “So if you went to visit this girl on her book tour and you gave her a gift from your heart, you should know it went in the garbage.”
Kendrick came back into Tahira’s life briefly, two years later at Barneys, where another stylist helped her. Apparently, that employee didn’t know Kendrick was a famous movie star, which made Kendrick pissed. She told Tahira the star got “nasty” with her about it.
Tahira says she will “never support anything this chick does.”
Now that’s some good gossip.
