Christina styled Coco personally according to the shooting team’s instructions the next day.
The shoot went smoothly, and a few days later, the promotional photos were officially posted on cutebaby’s official website. The website had a feature for pre-orders, and each piece of clothing received thousands of orders in less than half an hour.
Coco also posted these promotional photos on her social media account, which garnered much attention. from her young fans.
The clothing brand quickly went viral among the upper class.
Jewel delivered traditional medicine to Hadley Corporation for Nathaniel.
The latter was still in a meeting when she arrived, so she decided to organize the messy documents on his desk while she was waiting for him.
Suddenly, a document caught her eyes, and she opened it to read its contents carefully.
“Who allowed you to go through my documents?” A chilly voice rang out.
Nathaniel then walked into the office.
Jewel was startled. She had always known Nathaniel was a serious and unapproachable person since childhood, so she had to be extremely cautious when interacting with him even as his cousin.
However, she was more concerned about the information she had just seen. She put down the document and ran over. “Nathaniel, you invested in cutebaby?”
Nathaniel furrowed his brows, as he didn’t intend to disclose this information to anyone else.
He didn’t reply and walked toward his chair.
Jewel followed behind him, her face filled with anticipation. “I love the clothes from this brand, but they only accept pre-orders online. Can you do me a favor and help me get the store to send me a series of ready-to-wear clothes?”
The brand was launched only three days ago, and almost every girl in the city was waiting for their pre- orders to get shipped. If she could get her hands on this brand’s collection in advance, she could show off in front of her friends.
“Do you really want them?” Nathaniel glanced at her.
“Yes, please,” Jewel pleaded with puppy-dog eyes.
Nathaniel’s voice turned cold as he warned her, “But you can’t tell anyone, especially Christina, that I invested in this brand.”
Jewel blinked, thinking Nathaniel had invested in this brand because he was skeptical of Christina’s skills.
Delighted by the fact that Nathaniel chose to invest in another designer instead of Christina because he looked down on her. Jewel nodded fervently. “No problem, Nathaniel. I’ll keep it a secret.”
“If there’s nothing else, you can head back now.”
Nathaniel lowered his head to peruse the documents nonchalantly.
Jewel left his office in a joyful mood.
That evening, she received cutebaby’s collection of newly-launched clothes.
She immediately began applying makeup and photographing herself in these outfits. Then, she edited the photos and posted them online.
She knew that many people would be jealous of her for obtaining the clothes so quickly since they were limited-edition items.
Her post garnered tens of thousands of likes in a few minutes.
Jewel was overjoyed as she admired her photos. Some netizens even said that she looked better in those outfits compared to Coco.
She agreed with those netizens and thought she was indeed more photogenic than Coco.
If she had known Nathaniel was cutebaby’s investor in the first place, she would have tried to become its spokesperson.
This brand’s designer is foolish for not choosing me as their spokesperson.
Christina carned a sizable sum of revenue in less than a week because of the pre-orders.
The factory worked overtime, collaborating with the other manufacturers to rush the shipments. On the other hand, the clothes in the physical stores were sold out almost as soon as they were displayed.
Christina met with a real estate agent in a café one day to discuss purchasing a house.
She wanted to settle everything before her mother was discharged from the hospital.
“I think this three-story mansion is pretty nice. I’ll go with this one,” Christina said after scanning through the documents.
“Okay. Please sign here and transfer the deposit to me,” replied the real estate agent.
Christina picked up the pen and was about to sign when she was splashed by a glass of cold water.
The real estate agent and the documents were drenched, too.
The two of them exchanged bewildered glances. They couldn’t react in time as everything happened in the blink of an eye.
The sound of footsteps approached them, and Jewel emerged wearing cutebaby’s signature pink skirt. looking absolutely stunning. She was accompanied by several of her friends, who were all smirking mockingly behind her.
“You want to buy a house? Do you even have money to buy one?” She looked at Christina disdainfully. Christina was infuriated since she couldn’t sign the contract now that it was wet.
She stood up and retorted, “What does this have to do with you? What are you doing?
Jewel flushed crimson. She didn’t want to look foolish in front of her friends, so she shot daggers at Christina and said. “You are definitely using Nathaniel’s bank card. How shameless! How could you use his money to buy a house for yourself
Il’ho does Christina think she is? Isn’t she just the abandoned daughter of a bankrupt company’s boss? If it weren’t for the fact that she’s the only woman who doesn’t trigger Nathaniel’s phobia, she would never have been able to get married to Nathaniel!
In Jewel’s eyes, someone of Christina’s standard wasn’t worthy of joining her family.
In fact, she even thought someone like Christina would only lower their family’s status.
Christina met Jewel’s gaze fearlessly and sneered. “I’m Nathaniel’s legitimate wife. There’s nothing wrong with me using his money to buy a house. What right do you have to interfere in this?”
“Y-You- Jewel was so angry she was at a loss for words. She would have given Christina a slap across the face if she didn’t have to protect her image as a celebrity and the heiress of a wealthy family.
Christina swept a glance at Jewel’s friends, and a trace of disdain flashed in her eyes. “The brand cutebaby represents cheerful and pure young girls who are independent and unique instead of rude and unreasonable jerks. Can you at least watch your actions when wearing these clothes? Please keep in mind. that you guys are public figures.”
Jewel was surprised that Christina knew of the brand.
But Nathaniel still invested in another designer instead of Christina, so her designs are probably subpar.
Jewel inched closer to Christina and mocked, “Aren’t they beautiful? You will never be able to design such beautiful clothes! Please don’t mention you’re a designer in public. You might be okay with embarrassing yourself, but you shouldn’t bring shame to our family!”
Christina furrowed her brows before smiling gracefully, “Jewel, if you like this brand, you should at least find out who the designer of this brand is. If I were you, I’d wish the ground would swallow me up. Stop making a fool out of yourself.”
With that, Christina grabbed her bag and left.
Jewel stood rooted to the spot, rendered speechless.
What does Christina mean by that?
She immediately unlocked her phone and visited cutebaby’s official website. To her surprise, she saw Christina’s picture immediately after clicking into the designer section.
