oh, hedi - saint laurent

mr. slimane's response to cathy horyn's review of his saint laurent show on his twitter:
miss horyn is a schoolyard bully and also a little bit of a stand up comedian. insiders agree she is an average writer, and a bit provincial, but i disagree, she did some great things. her biggest achievement so far is a book about bill blass, that i haven't read. it might be terrific, and i'll be happy to recommend it, if it helps the sales.
i also often hear that her sense of style is seriously challenged, providing that she is meant to be an authority in the village. this is totally irrelevant, no one has ever asked for her to be an inspiration to others after all, and likely it would never happen anyway.
besides, and amusingly, her agenda is seriously thick and perfectly predictable. she is a woman on a mission, and this season she is on fire.
miss horyn also works for the new york times, as everyone knows, where conflicts of interest might seem a little out of place and where being partial, or too friendly with the locals might not be an option. 
in conclusion, and as far as i'm concerned, she will never get a seat at saint laurent, but might get 2 for 1 at dior. she should rejoice. i don't mind critics but they have to come from a fashion critic, not a publicist in disguise. i am quite mesmerized she did get away with it for so many years.
and by the way come to visit our new website at ysl.com

and this is why i fucking LOVE hedi slimane!!! j'adore.
