The show, set to coincide with the lingerie and trade show CURVExpo, was supposed to take place at the hotel's popular Blush nightclub. When the Wynn heard about the plans, though, they nixed the event.
In a statement, a rep for the Wynn said, "The Blush management group booked a lingerie fashion show with CURVExpo which took place Tuesday, February 16. A similar event had been hosted at Blush in 2009. This year, event organizers asked our club management if they could include a maternity lingerie model in the show. This request did not coincide with the spirit of the event and we did not feel it appropriate to feature a very pregnant model in a nightclub, at midnight, where alcohol was being served. Our team made a judgment call which we feel was correct given the environment and circumstance."
Hmm. We've all seen pregnant women in Vegas (some of us even went for a last hoorah!). Does this mean that if you're pregnant, you shouldn't be out after midnight in a club? Or after midnight at all? And that it's a safety issue? If the hotel is that concerned about the crowded boozy nature of their clubs, isn't this a safety concern for everyone -- not just pregnant women?
What do you think? Was the hotel right in passing on the event?
