Giorgio Armani Insults Anna Wintour To Her Face

Illustration for article titled Giorgio Armani Insults Anna Wintour To Her Face
  • Georgio Armani is co-chairing a dinner to celebrate a Vogue-sponsored Costume Institute exhibit called "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy." Which is why he gave a press conference during which he professed to be "indifferent" to Anna Wintour while standing next to her. We assume he'll be too dead to make it to dinner. [NY Mag]
  • Then again: the shocking new garment industry tell-all Gomorrah says Italian fashion is really just the Mafia so maybe Georgio knows what he's doing. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Model Gemma Ward's film debut The Black Balloon takes top prize at he Berlin Festival. [Sassybella]
  • I grow increasingly obsessed with Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs as each new ad starring Posh as the face of MJ's Spring 2008 collection is revealed. Vicks as a naughty dark angel? Love. [Chic Report]
  • Project Runway bitch slap! Chris Marc says Christian Siriano is going to be designing for K-Mart soon enough. [AdAge]
  • Eva Herzigova: Doesn't need a swimwear line now that she has a son. "[The line] was my little baby. But since I have my own now, it's really hard to follow... Unless I get a license deal, I don't think I'll do it." See ladies, if your career is as pointless/lucrative as modeling and celebrity guest design, you don't have to feel any guilt about giving it up to have babies! [WWD, 3rd item]
  • Hayden Panettierre is the new face of Candie's footwear. [Sassybella]
  • Ooh la la! Former Dior Homme designer Hedi Slimane is going to be shooting the haute couture collections for French Vogue. [WWD, 4th item]
  • 15-year old Russian designer Kira Plastinina on who she hopes to see in her designs, "I like Paris, I like Vanessa Hudgens, I like the High School Musical girls, and Rihanna. I love Rihanna." [Chic Report]
  • Yves Saint Laurent is once again pretending that advertising is political activism. [Vogue UK]
  • A line of body shapers called Yummie Tummie. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • The British fashion industry is blaming its second-tier status in the fashion world on the absence of enough factories to produce its wares. Uh...because Jakarta and Dhaka are totally the new fashion capitals. [Reuters] [WWD, sub req'd]

@titania1285: I used to work for Kohl's corporate, and every time they snag some "high profile" starlet, I laugh my ass off, because they usually get suckered into coming to Menomonee Falls, WI for a promo. Daisy Fuentes locked herself in an auditorium and they basically did a drawing for who could see her speak. HILARIOUS. I do think Ashley Judd dodged the bullet because technically she was working for Estee Lauder through Kohl's, but she's the only one I actually would have wanted to see.
