Jasmine Stefanovic (née Yarbrough) turned red after being turned away from a show at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week in Sydney on Thursday.
The 37-year-old shoe designer and wife of Today presenter Karl Stefanovic was denied entry by security after arriving late for the Indigenous Fashion Projects show.
Jasmine was spotted trying to negotiate with the guard as she stood outside a friend’s door in the rain.

At one point, the burly guard gestured to what was going on behind the door while a desperate Jasmine glanced at her phone.
She was seen talking to the guard, before turning and looking hopelessly in the opposite direction.
According to an onlooker, Jasmine and her boyfriend showed up 10 minutes late for the show, which was set to start at 1:30 PM.

She was held up at the COVID check-in area, requiring all attendees to have their temperatures taken before entering the property.
“She was only about 10 minutes late but they had already closed the doors while she was still checking into the COVID temperature control room,” a source told the Daily Mail Australia.
“It sounded like they asked security at the door if the doors would reopen for the next show and they stood there for a few more minutes, but then they left.”

After being canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Afterpay Australian Fashion Week – mainly based at Carriageworks in Sydney – is the first national fashion show to be held live anywhere in the world for over a year.
The five-day event coincides with the publication of an EY report, From High Fashion to High Vis, detailing the economic contribution of the Australian fashion and textile sector.

According to the Australian Fashion Council, which commissioned it, it is the most comprehensive study of the fashion and textile industry ever done in Australia.
It found that the industry generates $7.2 billion in export revenue for Australia, while the industry’s economic impact represents more than 1.5 percent of the national economy.
The survey also found that the industry employs nearly half a million Australians, more than mining and utilities, and 77 percent of the workforce is made up of women.
