It’s been two days now and the FashInternet is still buzzing about Azzedine Alaïa’s left out from the Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. Protesting against the scandalous gesture, Naomi and Stephanie (Seymour) didn’t show for the Benefit Gala.
The scandal took such proportions that even Michelle Obama was implicated. She was wearing a black sleeveless dress when she attended Time’s 100 Most Influential People event (which took place 24hours after the Met Gala). Nothing unusual so far, right? (the story continues right after the jump with more pictures!)
Only the dress was supposedly signed by none the other but our very renegade designer, Azzedine Alaïa! The word rapidly spreading boomeranged back with the official version: Michelle Obama was wearing a black sleeveless maxi dress by Michael Kors! She chose a corset-belt by Peter Soronen and a multiple pearl strand necklace by Loree Rodkin to match the long, simple Kors black dress. Would you have wanted her taking sides in the Alaïa fashion scandal? (via 1, 2)
