A spokesman for Peaches Geldof says it was an 'honest mistake'
Back on the rack: The £500 silk dress (on left) in the Victim boutique :s
Peaches Geldof has been accused of leaving a trendy London boutique without paying for a £500 dress.
The 18-year-old was reported to security guards after allegedly walking out with a silk dress from the Victim fashion store near Carnaby Street.
Boutique designer Mei-hui Liu said she noticed that the expensive cream dress had vanished after Peaches was browsing the rails on Thursday evening.
She called security and complained to the teenager's agent at Insanity Talent Management. Two hours later Peaches returned to the store with the dress and an apology.
Police were not called, after Peaches said that it was a "misunderstanding."
Miss Liu said: "She said sorry and that it was a misunderstanding, but the dress is ruined.
"She said the dress had got caught up in her scarf and because it was the same colour she didn't realise she had it in her arms. The agent's assistant arrived on Friday afternoon with the money for the dress. The dress is worth £500 but we charged £250."
Peaches was thought to be filming a new series of her reality TV show when she rang the doorbell for entry into the Marshall Street boutique around 5.30pm.
Miss Liu said: "She came in and said 'Hi, I'm Peaches.' I didn't know who she was and I didn't care.
She asked for my business card and said she would give me a call if she ever needed a dress.
"She was looking through the rails with her back to us and then I saw her wrapping something in her scarf. She took the business card from me, walked away and jumped into her private car."
A spokesman for Insanity Talent Management said: "The claim is totally incorrect. Peaches has a receipt for the supposed stolen dress.
The payment was made today because the store's credit card machine was not working yesterday. She most definitely has not been shoplifting and nothing has been reported to the police."
In October 2006 Peaches, the daughter of Bob Geldof, was stopped at London clothes shop Urban Outfitters on suspicion of shoplifting a coat. She was allowed to leave after paying for the item.
"It was an honest mistake at the time and Peaches went back to the store having been told the dress was missing.
