Azzedine Alaia (发音为Aze-DEEN Ah-lie-yah)，他很少有fashion show，这并不代表他不红，他是一级设计师眼中的“Designer of Designers”。什么铆钉、金属环扣、紧束胸衣和性感蛇皮，其实就是来自他的设计。就连一级兼低调的时尚干妈川久宝玲也曾如此赞扬他：“我永远都很尊敬Alaia。因为他是用心和激情在做设计， 他坚守自己的理念从不妥协！”
最近，Azzedine Alaia敢敢对Anna Wintour放话，我能说如果你没几量实力的话，你哪敢得罪这位足于影响整个时尚业的女皇。
I said it before. She runs the business [of Vogue] very well, but not the fashion part. When I see how she is dressed, I don’t believe in her tastes one second. I can say it loudly! She hasn’t photographed my work in years even if I am a best seller in the US and I have 140 square meters at Barneys. American women love me; I don’t need her support at all. Anna Wintour doesn’t deal with pictures; she is just doing PR and business, and she scares everybody. But when she sees me, she is the scared one. [Laughs.] Other people think like me, but don’t say it because they are afraid that Vogue won’t photograph them. Anyway, who will remember Anna Wintour in the history of fashion? No one. Take Diana Vreeland, she is remembered because she was so chic. What she did with the magazine was great, with Avedon and all the great photographers. Vogue remains while its fashion editors come and go.
What can I say? 相当对，相当有point！
