Only thing better than two bitches scrapping is two queens scrapping. Or in this case, three queens scrapping.
So Mr Valentino has announced he’s retiring and, like any egomaniacal ‘mo would rightly do, is currently milking the longest goodbye, like, ever. As you know, Mr Valentino does not mince words. But he does have kind ones to say about his Italian counterparts - Armani (revolutionary), Prada (stupefying) and Donatella (gritty).
And then there’s Dolce & Gabbana. Valentino called them “shy to begin with, but now rather arrogant. The problem with young stylists is that they all want to be famous straight away and then they all do the same things.”
Needless to say, D&G did not take this without drama, and Gabbana fired back with his claws out:
“To be quite honest, I don’t care what Valentino says about us. Valentino has been having goodbye parties since last July. I’ve been working.”
Did he just call Mr Valentino lazy??? Will Mr Valentino lose his senior citizen sh*t? Will he call for a celebrity boycott of D&G? My Gwyneth is a Valentino muse. My Gwynnie rarely wears D&G. but my Gwynnie’s bestie Madonna is a big D&G supporter. Where will they draw the battle seams?
Do you love it, or do you LOVE it?
Here’s Mr Valentino in Paris today accepting the medal of the city joined by his friend and fellow designer Karl Lagerfeld. For some reason I find this photo impossibly hilarious. Like different shades of death on display at Madame Tussaud’s.
I do so miss Karl’s bitch beating fan…
