Lady Gaga in London

Lady Gaga Enters the Hot Dog Fray

Lady Gaga is at it again, weighing in on an old beef. Taking to Twitter, the pop star thrust herself into the cleared-up mix-up between Cathy Horyn and Oscar de la Renta, and in the process reinvigorating her longstanding feud with the New York Times fashion critic.

The brouhaha stemmed from a review during New York Fashion Week. In it, Horyn called the couturier a “hot dog” for showing off his skills in his latest collection. De la Renta fought back against the perceived “personal criticism” with a full-page ad in WWD. Once Horyn, and presumably a trip to, sorted things out, the two declared a truce.

But Gaga, who has criticized Horyn’s criticism in the past, revived the non-issue yesterday with a Tweet to the label’s online persona, Erika Bearman: “@OscarPRGirl Bravo Oscar. Only you would be so chic as to purchase an entire page in WWD, making statements like a good fashion citizen." Now that we know how she feels, hopefully we can put the meaty address and redress behind us—if not memories of that meat dress.
