What, exactly, is Giorgio Armani's problem this week? First he bans Cathy Horyn from his show in Milan, and then, this morning, he let his mouth run astray about Anna Wintour. Mm-hmm. La Bobella (wearing her beloved Prada dress) was on the same stage as Armani during a press conference in Milan about the Costume Institute's forthcoming "Superheroes" exhibition, and then it got delicious:
Armani was supposed to be addressing the troops about an exhibition called Superheroes in New York this May, which he is co-chairing with Wintour.
Instead, with La Wintour present, and seeming to ramble, he said he couldn't understand why so many people disliked the American Vogue editor; he said he was "indifferent" to her — gasps from onlookers — before changing his mind and saying actually he liked her. He also suggested that she preferred French designers to Italians.
Well, maybe he's just saying that because nothing by Armani was featured in February's Vogue. It's certainly not a French/Italian thing, as we actually calculated (yes, those shopping indexes are useful) how many of each designer's items were featured in the issue and the number of Italian versus French designers were dead even at eleven apiece.
We're still waiting for the video of this press conference to pop up on Style.com as it promised. We're guessing it won't include Armani's little rant. And we're guessing Vogue won't include many of Armani's little designs in the coming months, either.
