Balenciaga Banned Carine Roitfeld, Vogue Paris

Balenciaga Banned Carine Roitfeld, Vogue Paris

This is shocking and super scary. I received this news alert from Women's Wear Daily  last night during dinner.

In other Balenciaga news, noticeably absent from Thursday’s front row was French Vogue editor in chief Carine Roitfeld and her team. They were barred from the show. “We’re blacklisted,” Roitfeld said with a shrug at Nina Ricci later in the day. “It’s too bad, it’s a beautiful house and it’s French. I hope that it’s not forever.” She noted Balenciaga no longer advertises in the magazine or lends it clothes, but stopped short of giving any reason for the rift. “Ask them,” she offered. A Balenciaga spokesman declined comment.

It's no secret that the House of Balenciaga, which is owned by Gucci Group/PPR, is super conservative when it comes to their show but to blacklist Carine Roitfeld (who wore Balenciaga in last year's CNN feature as above) and her Vogue Paris team means something serious happened behind closed doors.

Thoughts?
