In the press we often read about the muses of designers: fashion history is replete with examples of long-term successful cooperation between designers and celebrities. Hubert de Givenchy dressed Audrey Hepburn and on screen and in life, Olivier Rusten has created a spectacular concert outfits for Beyonce, Jared Leto and Lana del Rey has found new and unique images thanks to Alessandro Mikkel. But the history of fashion and knows the not-so-positive examples: the attitude of some of the designers from the stars have not formed. Direct insults, refusing to make dresses and other conflicts SPLETNIK.RU collected a few stories.
1.Karl Lagerfeld vs Meryl Streep

In the center of the scandal, the legendary fashion designer and the legendary actress was on the eve of the ceremony “Oscar-2017”. It was assumed that the Strip will appear at the event in a dress from Chanel, and Atelier has already begun work on the outfit, when suddenly came an unexpected failure on the part of the actress. According to Lagerfeld, the reason was that there was another brand willing to pay the actress for what she gets in their dress.
We gave her a dress worth 100 thousand euros, and later it turned out that we still must pay for her way in it. We make them dress and give them, but we do not pay for the outputs in these dresses on the track. She’s a brilliant actress, but it is a cheap behaviour
— said Lagerfeld.
Representatives of the actress and her stylist was, of course, a different view of the situation.
In addition to Chanel, several brands have offered their own sketches of dresses. We just decided to go in a different direction with another designer
— said in an official statement, then Lagerfeld has apologized.

At the same time she Meryl Streep was in no hurry to reduce the degree of intensity:
Karl Lagerfeld, the famous designer, slandered me, my stylist and another outstanding designer, the dress I chose (in the end of ceremony the Striptease has appeared in a dress by Elie Saab — Approx.ed.). I don’t take seriously regrets Lagerfeld for this reason, he lied
the actress said, after which the designer had to apologize again, saying that he misunderstood the waiver of the stylist Strip.
2.Nicki Minaj vs Giuseppe Zanotti

The relationship with the singer and designer, it would seem, had to be at least friendly: Minaj Zanotti has mentioned in his song Monster, and the designer has released a line of sneakers called Nicki, named in honor of the singer. But the idyll is still not happened: Nicki accused Giuseppe “racism and contempt”, as it refused to create a formal collaborative capsule collection.
I met with Zanotti several years ago, then he told me that I inspired him to create these sneakers. He has recently launched a new capsule collection with other stars, and when my agent tried to contact his PR service, told him that will not be able to negotiate
— wrote Nicki on Twitter.
3.Tom Ford vs Melania trump
Tom Ford/ Melania Trump
In 2016, Tom Ford, who was recently appointed to head the American Council of fashion designers gave an interview in which she said that she refused to wear the first lady of the United States Melania trump, because she’s not his type. It was the eve of inauguration of the President, and many, however, saw in this a political protest, it is known that the designer supports Democrats, while trump is a member of the Republican party. By the way, then with the refusal to wear Melania were not only Ford, but also Marc Jacobs.
To protect the couple immediately stood up himself, Donald trump.
Melania never asked Tom Ford to sew clothes for her. She did not like neither Tom Ford nor its design — said trump in the program Fox&Friends.

But the intrigue continued to haunt the minds of those who follow the world of fashion. All interested in the true causes of failure to cooperate. Recently on the news feed got a quote where Ford called trump “excentrica”:
I’m not interested in dressing the famous escortsite who steals other people’s speech and has bad taste in men, — stated in it.
Soon representatives of the designer was quick to call this fake quote. Its source was a post on Twitter one of the users of the network, who attributed these words to the designer. The tweet attracted several thousand likes and reposts, and so came to media.
This is a completely fabricated quote, which somehow became viral. Mr. Ford never made such claims, is a lie,
— said in a statement.
4.Stefano Gabbana vs Selena Gomez

Fight designer and singer seems to be altogether overlooked place: Gabbana no apparent reason quite aggressive commented on the selection of different look AMI, Selene, which was published in Instagram account of The Catwalk Italia.
She’s so ugly!
— written by the designer, and then, of course, has been criticized from all sides.
Many saw this as elementary envy due to the fact that the popular singer (and Instagram from Selena nearly 150 million subscribers) partnered with another fashion brand. But, I must admit that without this disposition and Gabbana cocky: after Selena, he managed to insult the Chiara Ferragni, calling her wedding dress by Dior “cheap”, and left offensive Emoji on the page of Ariana Grande.
5.Dolce&Gabbana vs Elton John

However, it should be noted that public scandals, it seems, did not confuse Italian designers, if you count all the conflicts in which they were involved, will be typed on a separate special edition of some tabloid. But before designers not attacked stars together, but not alone.
So, in 2015, a scandal erupted between the brand Dolce&Gabbana and singer Elton John. Cause of contention was the statement of Dolce and Gabbana on children born in same-sex families.
We oppose adoption by homosexual couples. The only true family is the traditional family, not the case when the uterus is available for rent, and the seed is selected in the catalog,
— said the designers also condemning surrogacy.
Elton John took the words of the Duo very close to my heart.
How dare you call my beautiful children “synthetic”? Are not you ashamed to speak this way about in vitro fertilization is a miracle, allowing many loving couples, as homosexual and heterosexual, to fulfill their dream of having children? Your archaic thinking also lagged behind life, like the clothes you produce. I’m never going to wear Dolce&Gabbana
— he reacted to his Instagram, calling on their followers to join the boycott of the brand.
Later, however, the singer and the designers still made a truce — Dolce and Gabbana brought Elton apologize.
6.Azzedine alaïa against Anna Wintour
Azzedin Alaya/ Anna Wintour
The reputation of the chief ladies of the fashion world, editor-in-chief of American Vogue Anna Wintour is impeccable, but her status was never questioned, (and who dare!). But still she was unable to avoid critical remarks in his address — and from his own circle. Unflattering about Wintour in 2011, said the legendary designer Azzedine Alaya.
Well she does business, but it does not fashion. When I see how she is dressed, I do not believe that she has taste! Who will remember Anna Wintour? No! No one! Take Diana Vreeland — I remember her because she was gorgeous and how she kept Vogue was amazing!
— alaïa said in an interview.
The relationship of the designer and the editor-in-chief, by the way, noticeably cooled a few years earlier, in 2009, Wintour did not include the work of Alaya in the Met As Muse exhibition, which was organized by Vogue.
7.Donatella Versace vs. Giorgio Armani
Donatella Versace/ Giorgio Armani
Great friendship in the world of Italian fashion was never the relationship of the Gianni Versace and Giorgio Armani were strained. But one saying colleagues quite enraged Donatella Versace, especially given the fact that the answer Armani, her brother could not.
The conflict was caused by an interview in which Armani asked whether it was true that he once said that Versace dress whores and he — lady.
It’s true. But it was the opposite. Not I said so, Versace spoke to me. We met in Rome at a very fancy event, and looking at models, he told me: “I dress the whore, and you — those who go to Church” (I dress sluts. You dress church ladies),
— answered Armani journalist.
Donatella thought this behavior of the designer are not allowed.
I find it extremely rude and low the fact that Mr. Armani again puts these words in the mouth of my brother, especially considering the fact that he has already, unfortunately, can not answer him, because he is not with us. This is the second time that Armani says that. The first time it happened immediately after the death of Gianni, then Armani apologized to me, ‘ said Donatella in an interview with Vogue in 2015.
8.Ashley Graham, Beyonce and others against discrimination
In addition, it is worth noting that many models and Actresses are faced with not the most welcome in the Studio: someone because of their image, and someone because of the shape. Names they certainly do not call, but in the contempt complained even Beyonce and Ashley Graham.
Yes, this is today, Beyonce is all of the designers wanting to dress her. Once the singer had an opportunity to see a lot of closed doors.
When I first started singing in the group Destiny’s Child, luxury brands were reluctant to put black lush girls, and we are not able to afford designer dresses,
— recognized as something beyoncé.
At the ceremony Emmy in 2017, actress Rachel bloom said that she bought a dress from Gucci two and a half thousand dollars.
Sometimes very difficult to find dress rental, because you are not a size zero (equivalent to XS — Approx. ed). Thank God I can afford the outfits
— as the actress said, adding later that it is not addressed to Gucci asking rental dresses, but confirmed that the size range in various ateliers still very limited.
Words bloom confirmed by the actress Christina Hendricks.
People say to me compliments, but no one designer will loan me dresses! They give only the sizes from 0 to 2 (equivalent to M — Approx. ed.). So I’m still looking for someone who can give me the damn dress,
— she confessed.
With a similar problem faced and actress Melissa McCarthy. When she was preparing for the ceremony “Oscar” in 2012, in search of the dresses had to spend a lot of time and nerves.
I asked five or six designers, high-level and everywhere was refused,
— told Melissa that eventually appeared on the carpet in a dress from a brand dedicated to clothing plus-size Marina Rinaldi.
This brand, by the way, loves and Ashley Graham for which to find a suitable outfit, too, is sometimes a daunting task.
Find dress girls my size and with a large breast size is a job in itself!
— Frank somehow Graham.
Some, however, prefer to relieve yourself from unnecessary stress. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard admitted that buys cocktail dresses in regular stores itself. For example, the dress is a shade of metallic blue Jenny Packman she bought at Department store Neiman Marcus.
