Fashion and cat fights have gone together since, well, always. When tempers run high, people get angry, and ~fashionstas~ get even. We’ve compiled a list of ten fashion face-offs. Enjoy!
KELLY CUTRONE vs JANICE DICKINSON
Kelly Cutrone thinks Janice Dickinson is an erratic, unpredictable b***h. Janice Dicknson was let go from her judging stoop on ANTM, and called out Tyra Banks, claiming the show was rigged. Cutrone being Tyras friend backed her up. Besides, she’s not taking advice from someone who’s made an appearance on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab.
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN vs YVES ST LAURENT
You can’t steal an idea, and surely you can’t own the colour red. It’s no wonder when Christian Louboutin tried to sue YSL over red soled shoes he lost.
NAOMI CAMPBELL vs MARCELLE BITTAR
Naomi has quite the track record for being an aggressive bully. This is one such story. Naomi took some anger out on Brazilian model Marcelle Bittar in an exclusive Sao Paulo restaurant. An onlooker said the pair – who had been dining together – “gave quite a show of punches and slaps.” Marcelle later told a Sao Paulo journalist she had confronted Naomi over claims the model had punched and kicked a mutual friend and model booker – causing him to get sacked. Cheque please!
ANNA WINTOUR vs GRACE CODDINGTON
Sometimes creative minds clash. One such incident happened over at American Vogue. There was a photo inclusion dispute between Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour. To cut or not to cut? That is the editors question. Anna won.
BETH DITTO vs KARL LAGERFELD
Karl Lagerfeld called Adele fat, and Beth Ditto thinks he’s “completely insane.” Also that he’s really talented, but not the best, and did you know? Karl used to be a ‘fat, eccentric dude’. Beth Ditto thinks the only person who could get away with calling someone fat is someone who once was.
JOHN GALLIANO vs DIOR
John Galliano got drunk one night and said some horrendous things. As a decent human being, you shouldn’t say such things. As a prolific designer, you really shouldn’t say such things. Galliano was shunned from the fashion world, and fired from Dior, where he had overseen the house’s design for decades.
CHRISTOPHER BURCH vs TORY BURCH
When they were married, they had dreams of opening up a store that would provide low-to-mid-price retail in a luxury setting. Now separated, Christopher Burch has run with the idea, going as far as to open a store called C.Wonder, a few blocks away from a Tory Burch store. From the interior to what the store carries, it is apparently a near carbon copy of the Tory Burch brand.
JUSTIN BIEBER vs MARC JACOBS
Uh, copy cat much? Marc Jacobs ‘Lola’ perfume bottle looks uncannily similar to Justin Beibers fragrance ‘Someday’. But maybe Beiber’s marketing peeps were really looking out for Jacobs – get young teenage girls to buy Beiber’s scent, then someday they’d graduate to Lola? Apparently, a lawsuit was in the works, but it was called off.
D&G vs D&G
D&G Autocare with nine branches got into a naming dispute with Italian luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana. The owners, David Hunter and George Simpson were shocked to discover that D&G the clothing label, filed a lawsuit saying it would confuse customers. The case was settled, when D&G Autocare promised to add the word “autocrat” to their name. Oh, and then they sued South African jewelry shop Dolce & Banana. So, there’s that.
MADONNA vs LADY GAGA
Madonna performed a mash-up of her 1980s hit “Express Yourself” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” during a May 31 concert in Tel Aviv and Lady Gaga took offense. The two have long been compared, Gaga being the next Madonna. Madonna called Lady Gaga’s similar sounding music “reductive” in an ABC interview, and on SNL she asked “what the hell is a disco stick?” Jealous Madge? Move on. Or at least over.
