BUZZ: Hedi Slimane and Anna Wintour’s Ongoing Feud: What’s the Latest?

It appears that Hedi Slimane, the Creative Director of Celine, is still holding a grudge against Vogue’s most powerful editor, Anna Wintour. This was evident at the Met Gala on Monday night, as Celine was noticeably absent from the famed Super Bowl of fashion.

The night’s honoree, the late designer Karl Lagerfeld, was such a fan of Slimane that he famously lost 92 pounds to fit into the suits the designer was making for Dior Homme. This further confirmed the bad blood between Slimane and Wintour when French influencer Camille Charriere chimed in on a Twitter discussion about who was and was not on the red carpet. Charriere stated that Slimane would not allow her to give wedding dress pics to Vogue, even though her wedding to film producer Francois Larpin was covered by the fashion bible in December 2021. She explained that this was because Slimane is “against the globalization of culture”.

The alleged grudge has been going on for a while. WWD reported that Vogue’s Runway section was not invited to cover Celine’s spring 2022 virtual show. Sources told the publication that Slimane was upset when Condé Nast fired the top editors at Vogue’s international editions, including his bestie, former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt. Additionally, sources said that Slimane had expressed his frustration to Wintour and pulled advertising from Vogue. However, a source close to the magazine said that it is Slimane’s decision not to work with Vogue and they have “nothing but respect and admiration” for him.
