Le Bitch Slap Heard Around the Tents It's not uncommon during fashion month for tempers to flare - people are running on too much coffee and not enough sleep (and likely not enough food, let's be real).

Cathy Horyn vs. Hedi Slimane This is still ongoing, but let's recap: This feud reportedly goes back to a 2004 review by the critic in which she stated (innocently enough) that Raf Simons had more or less pioneered the skinny tailoring style which Slimane mastered and commercialized. When Horyn was not invited to the much-hyped Saint Laurent show, she did what she does best: She wrote about it. Well, Slimane was having none of it, and posted an open letter to his Twitter account, calling Horyn a "schoolyard bully" and "a publicist in disguise." Yikes. Horyn, who it should be noted is not the only critic to take issue with Slimane's new (and very tight) reign over YSL, called the whole thing "silly nonsense." If you thought Slimane was going to let bygones be bygones, well, you were wrong. He took to Twitter again to decry what he called Horyn's "tired biased tune."

Oy vey. And just when you thought things couldn't get any circus-ier, who should chime in but Lady Gaga, who had also released a rap (yes, a rap) in which she tells Horyn that her "style ain't dick." Whatever that means. But it doesn't sound nice.
