Stella Who?!

Going through twitter newsfeed a few days ago, I stumbled upon a conversation
between Stefano Gabbana- one half of the Dolce & Gabbana design duo- and his friend.  When the said friend mentioned Stella McCartney's name, Steffano replied with a 'ma chi????? la figlia del cantante?????'

The original conversation was in Italian and below is the rough translation in English...

@fabioviscovo - I LOVE Stella McCartney!
@stefanogabbana - Who ??????
@fabioviscovo- ahahaha! You don’t like Stella McCartney?!
@stefanogabbana- Who ????? The daughter of the singer ?????
@fabioviscovo - Yeeees! Stella McCartney, the designer !!!!!
@fabioviscovo– Stefanoooooooo, please !!!!! You don’t know Stella’s a designer ?????
@stefanogabbana – What’s she known for?? What’s her specialty??
@stefanogabbana- What sort of style does she do? What’s so special about it??
@fabioviscovo– She makes a lot of minimalist sequined dresses... ... .. they’re really feminine. They’re perfect for a nude look!
@fabioviscovo– Come on! You’ve got to have seen them! And although she’s really famous … she’s still an upcoming designer!
@stefanogabbana– Yeah, she’s upcoming after 15 years doing nothing!! Hahahaha
@stefanogabbana- Aaaaaaa ...... I see you appreciate nonentities!! Bravo!


Who's advertising what?

Just in case you're wondering what is being advertised here, well then join the qeue! Raquel Zimmerman graces the latest print ad campaign for LoveChloé  wearing a.... *gasp*..... YSL belt!!!! The print ads, which were shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, have been out since August and Chloé's PR office have not commented on the HEADS- WILL-ROLL-MAJOR fashion faux-pas. Yet.

So, is this a case of sack Joe McKenna (the stylist)?!
or Ezra Petronio (the creative director)?!

You be the judge.
