Stefano Gabbana Has No Idea Who Stella McCartney Is
(NEW YORK) At first, we thought this was one of Humor Chic illustrator aleXsandro Palombo's little stunts (you know, like drawing Anna Wintour and Valentino Garavani on the toilette), but after a thorough Twitter research job, and a few Italian translations, we can confirm that until two days ago, Stefano Gabbana had no idea who Stella McCartney was. "Ma chi????? La figlia del cantante?????" he tweeted in response to one of his Twitter pals gushing (in Italian) about the designer, who is, in fact, the daughter of a singer. The roughly translated transcript of the exchange between @stefanogabbana and @fabioviscovo, courtesy of Humor Chic, below:
Fabio Viscovo - I LOVE Stella McCartney!
Stefano Gabbana - who ??????
Fabio Viscovo - ahahaha! You don’t like Stella McCartney?!
Stefano Gabbana - Who ????? The daughter of the singer ?????
Fabio Viscovo - Yeeees! Stella McCartney, the designer !!!!!
Fabio Viscovo – Stefanoooooooo, please !!!!! You don’t know Stella’s a stylist ?????
Stefano Gabbana – What’s she known for?? What’s her specialty??
Stefano Gabbana - What sort of style does she do? What’s so special about it??
Fabio Viscovo – She makes a lot of minimalist sequined dresses... ... .. they’re really feminine. They’re perfect for a nude look!
Fabio Viscovo – Come on! You’ve just got to have seen them! And although she’s really famous … she’s still an upcoming designer!
Stefano Gabbana – Yeah, she’s upcoming after 15 years doing nothing!! Hahahaha
Stefano Gabbana - Aaaaaaa ...... I see you appreciate nonentities!! Bravo!
Ahem...anything to add to that, @stellamccartney?
