Pretty as the clothes and people may be, fashion has an undoubtedly ugly side at times. Cut throat competition leads to feuds, gossip, blackballing…we all saw The Devil Wears Prada, right?
I’ve witnessed behind-the-scenes snobbery first hand and have even dodged a jab or two myself from photographers, agents and stylists alike (not from the models, pleasantly surprising enough). While slights may sting temporarily, thick skin is ultimately required of those who are to make it in this industry. I personally attribute the misbehaviors of my peers to overblown egos and then remind myself of exactly why I love and immerse myself in this field to begin with: The astounding volume of creative genius that is expressed through Fashion as its medium and the wonderful people in the field who largely outnumber the meanie-heads.
Now that I’ve published my disclaimer regarding the dual personalities of capital F-Fashion (Is Fashion a Gemini?…Hmmm. Profound.), check out The Huffington Post‘s list of “The 7 Most Hated People in Fashion:
1. Anna Wintour
I doubt this one shocks any of us. Anna Wintour is straight up infamous for her chilly demeanor as witnessed in The September Issue and as depicted by The Devil Wears Prada.
2. Victoria Beckham
I was a little surprised at this one. I always took Posh Spice’s persona to be for the media, but apparently she really comes off as cold in person as she does in front of the cameras. All that aside, the woman can design, has great taste in men and is quite fertile! Props.
3. Olivia Palermo
I get it, but didn’t know she was big-time enough to make a most hated list.
4. Miranda Kerr
Really?! But she has such innocent and charming dimples. Apparently she also has some real diva antics and was recently dropped from the Victoria’s Secret line-up. Her reps claim that she was too busy to fulfill her duties and withdrew. Hmm. Mmkay.
5. Joan Rivers
6. John Galliano
Remember his anti-Semitic rant a while back?
7. Cathy Horyn
Cathy is an über critical fashion critic for the New York Times who doesn’t have much nice to say about anyone. She had a highly publicized feud with Lady GaGa via social media about a while back too.
“Hate” is such a strong word! These are really the 7 People in Fashion Most in Need of More Hugs! To check out the juicy details, visit The Huffington Post‘s article for more! Peace 🙂
