Former Miss Oklahoma Suing Ten’s Strip Club Over Appropriation of Image

NYC- She’s not that kind of gal.

A former Miss Oklahoma is suing a strip club in the Flatiron District for plastering her face and figure on “free admission” palm cards without permission.

Laci Kay Scott says in Manhattan federal court papers that she’s “easily recognizable” as the orange-gowned hottie advertising “private table dancing” and “personal rooms” on the handouts from Ten’s Gentlemens Club.

The 22-year-old fashion model specializes in prom dresses and other clothing “targeted at adolescent girls,” the suit says.

That’s prom, not porn.

The Sooner State stunner says she has “consistently declined” offers to pose nude, in lingerie or in any “sexually provocative” manner so as to protect her whole some image.

The blue-eyed, blond beauty queen — who made it to the semifinals of the televised 2005 Miss USA pageant — calls her appearance on the club’s carnal cards “personally distressing and embarrassing.”

She says she has had to repeatedly explain the situation to shocked friends, family and colleagues.

Scott, who has worked for Calvin Klein, BCBG and Limited Brands, doesn’t specify damages in her suit, which alleges defamation and violations of her right to privacy.

But she said one designer had already warned her that the handouts — which feature three shots of her in a backless, gold-trimmed gown — “would reflect unfavorably” on future jobs.

Her lawyer, Andrew Miltenberg, called the club’s action an “outright theft.”

“It is absolutely offensive that Ten’s would steal the image of a young woman and use it to attract men to the private rooms and what we can only imagine goes on back there,” he said. The alleged photo pilfering isn’t the first time Ten’s, formerly Stringfellow’s, has stirred controversy.

In 1998, the East 21st Street club waged a spirited rebellion against then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s zoning war on strip joints.

First, the club filed court papers saying its clientele included unidentified City Hall officials. Then it exploited a loophole that allowed it to stay open by admitting minors.

Padlocked by cops when the state’s highest court closed the kiddie loophole, the club reopened just a week later after conforming to the law by reconfiguring its interior so that the topless dancing occupied less than 40 percent of its floor space.

The club and its lawyer didn’t return calls for comment.
