Fashion Criticism Page 1
We understand that Lady Gaga is obsessed with fashion, but her new column for V Magazine, in which she basically tries to get back at New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn for unfollowing her on Twitter, largely misses the point of fashion criticism is all about.
The fashion industry has a love-hate relationship with Cathy Horyn. By which we mean to say the fashion industry hates Cathy Horyn. And maybe that’s because the longtime fashion critic for The New York Times is brash and fearless and does not give short shrift to the work of critiquing fashion collections. Her intelligent, eagle-eyed commentary has gotten her banned from runway presentations the world over, and her commentary on society and culture has been read as mean and elitist. But to hear her tell it, she’s mostly just misunderstood.
