Lady Gaga Calls Vogue’s Anna Wintour a ‘B—‘ … On Accident
A fashion cat fight of the highest order almost ensued thanks to a text message.
When Vogue editress Anna Wintour, rumored to be the inspiration for Meryl Streep's chilly fashion editor character in 'The Devil Wears Prada,' texted Lady Gaga to inform the 25-year-old fashionista that she was being bestowed with the Fashion Icon Award by the CFDA, Gaga replied with an expletive.
But it was a case of mistaken identity, a Gaga has a few "Annas" in her mobile device and she thought she was conversing with someone else.
In her speech at the CFDA Awards on Monday night, Gaga revealed, "When I was told I won this award, Anna Wintour sent me a text message … It said, 'We're so excited to tell you you won the CFDA Fashion Icon Award.' And I actually thought it was Anna Treblin, who was one of my very close friends and [my stylist] Nicola's assistant."
Gaga continued, "So I have a couple Annas in my phone, so my reply was, 'Yes, bitch, we did it.' So quite quickly I got a reply that said, 'How lovely, and we will all be waiting to see what you will wear.' And then I thought, 'Well won't you be helping me choose what I will wear?' And then I said, 'Oh! It's Anna Wintour.'" To quote Homer Simpson, "D'oh!"
Wintour, who is reigns atop the fashion food chain, took it all in stride and understood the technology gaffe. She has the power to keep Gaga off Vogue covers in the future, so we're glad to hear this little miscommunication was just that!
It's also worth mentioning the turquoise bob wig that Gaga wore to the CFDA ceremony is eerily similar to the way that Wintour wears her hair. Perhaps it was Gaga's not-so-subtle nod to Wintour?
