Critiquing fashion is not for the faint heart, but no one takes to task the world of style quite like Robin Givhan, and she’s got the Pulitzer prize to prove it. Earlier today, the news broke that the Givhan has signed on to review the New York and Paris collections for New York Magazine’s fashion blog, The Cut, and we can hardly wait for more of that infamous candor.
It’s also reassuring to our sanity that Givhan has received another high profile gig after her unforeseen layoff from Newsweek/The Daily Beast. Additionally, Givhan will spend the off season continuing to work on her book about the famous Versailles fashion battle of 1973, in which up-and-coming American designers were pinned against the French masters for sport.
As an ode to Givhan and her new title, we decided to narrow down ten of our favorite quotes from the famed fashion critic, from that time she made Hillary Clinton’s cleavage a hot topic to when she crossed Karl Lagerfeld (and if that doesn’t get you sweating at the mere thought, we don’t know what will).
