Azzedine Alaia Bans Vogue from His First Couture Show in 8 Years

017m

Thursday in Paris, Azzadine Alaïa presented his first couture show in 8 years! The highly anticipated fashion show boasted an impressive front row, including Kanye West, Donatella Versace (who invited herself), and Sophia Coppola. However, one well-known face was noticeably missing among the usual front-row attendees, Anna Wintour.

Alaïa reportedly banned Wintour and her staff from attending his show; a decision which stems from their long history of beef.  Most recently, Alaïa dissed the Vogue Editor-in-Chief in a statement, calling her “scary” and questioning, “who will remember Anna Wintour in the history of fashion? No one.”

Alaïa’s not too worried about excluding Anna Wintour, stating that Vogue hasn’t shot his work in years and yet he remains extremely successful. Judging from the rave reviews his newest couture collection is receiving, we’re guessing he will remain as popular as ever, even without Vogue’s help.
