    Default Giorgio Armani slams Anna Wintour for ‘snubbing’ his Milan show

    The devil doesn’t wear Armani! Giorgio Armani slammed Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour after she was noticeably missing from the front row of his Fall 2014 Womenswear show on the last day of Milan Fashion Week on Monday, Feb. 24. Without directly mentioning her name, Armani went off on Conde Nast’s imperious creative director during a post-show press conference.
    “There are some who prefer to snub the Giorgio Armani show and go to Paris,” the 79-year-old Italian designer said, according to WWD. “She took an airplane, dumped Mr. Armani and went to Paris.”

    “Why should I always be the moron translating from an Italian expletive] to be penalized because of a person, who, for better or for worse, like or dislike it, is powerful? I feel penalized,” he added. “She said she was sending her people. But if you go to see your dentist and he puts you in the hands of his assistant, what’s your reaction? They told me, ‘She went to see the [Armani] Prive in Paris; she has no time to see the ready-to-wear in Milan.’ She is influential and powerful. But, perhaps, I’m influential as well.” (That dig seemed to imply that Armani, perhaps, could choose not to run his ads in Vogue and other Conde Nast publications.)
    Milan Fashion Week ended on Monday, Feb. 24, and Paris Fashion Week kicked off Tuesday, Feb. 25. A spokesperson for Vogue told WWD that Wintour, 64, was unable to attend Armani’s show due to the tight schedule.

    “Anna has the greatest respect for Giorgio Armani and everything he has done for Italy and fashion worldwide,” the statement said. “Unfortunately, with the fashion calendar now running for more than a month, there are some shows that Anna is not able to attend.”

    Indeed, Wintour was front row at many shows throughout New York City Fashion and London Fashion Weekearlier this month. On Feb. 16, she attended the Topshop Unique show and sat next to Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, Kendall Jenner.

    She's more interested in Kendall than Cim!
