Fashion account The Catwalk Italia asked its 1.4 million followers to rate the 44-year-old model’s Saint Laurent playsuit with a thumbs up or thumbs down on Sunday. So, you know, one of those highly original and not at all outdated ‘hit or miss’ posts.
Many people seized the opportunity to comment on how freaking great Moss looked.
But when Gabanna – who has 1.2 million followers of his own – saw the post he chose to respond simply with a cutting “No”.
Now, we’re no public relations experts here, but when you are a famed designer with a huge international profile, it can’t be smart to leave a cruel comment like that on a supermodel’s photo, can it?
Especially not when she’s also an influential fashion icon, who might just wake up and choose to stop wearing your brand.
Maybe Gabbana didn’t realise people would see his comment and recognise his name?
