This is getting completely out of hand.
We figured that was the end of it. We were wrong. (We should have known better.)
Slimane is back at it on Twitter:
The perfect integrity of the NewYork Times, and its writers, is not precisely “just silly nonsense”
What is a ” silly nonsense ” to me is Catty Horyn still singing her tired bias tune for the nyt. This is an embarrassment for the newspaper.
So much for letting sleeping dogs lie.
And to further complicate things, the ever-vocal Lady Gaga threw in her two cents earlier today about the still-brewing feud via Twitter, too.
The songstress, who already has a well-documented feud with apparent mortal enemy Cathy Horyn, retweeted Slimane’s open letter to the Times critic, and added in a separate tweet:
“Monsters, check out @hedislimanetwit garments for YSL this season … a true punk visionary. Modern, forward, LA VERITE.”
We’re not surprised Gaga has come out on Hedi’s side–she did after all, defend Oscar de la Renta, in a similar situation–however we are a little bit surprised at how subtle Mother Monster managed to be. (I guess when you already have a rap song that personally insults someone’s style, subtlety can be afforded in this situation.)
We’re pretty sure designers and critics alike are really happy to see the end of fashion month.
