sorry but i have a lot of respect for cathy's writing. and why because she doesn't hide behind kissy-face,pandering rhetoric that tends to be pretty rife in this industry,especially in the US. she's honest but she's also very thoughtful in her critiques as well.
oscar seriously needs to get over himself. maybe he's just upset because the american elite aren't clamoring over themselves to get piece of him anymore. maybe it's because his aesthete is actually
stale. i certainly think it has for a while. to me he took this whole thing to another level of pure unadulterated childishness by writing up a full page letter in a different publication. cathy was writing her article as a reviewer,oscar responded in a very personal way,and it says more about his fragile ego than cathy's style of writing.
you know it reminds me of all that stink suzy menkes got from galliano and bernard arnault a few years ago because god forbid a critic writing a less than positive review of one of their immortal collections. that what all of this sounds like to me,egos with wads of cash getting bruised.
