The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Tim Gunn is Not Here For Anna Wintour, The Row to Open LA Flagship, and Did Kendall Jenner Just Shoot for Vogue?


• If you’ve ever wondered why you’ve never seen Tim Gunn and Anna Wintour palling around, it’s because the two apparently hate each other’s guts, as Gunn revealed to Page Six. The Under The Gunn star says the two have been fighting ever since he wrote about that time he saw Wintour being carried down the stairs by bodyguards at the Metropolitan Pavillion after a fashion show in his 2010 tome Gunn’s Golden Rules. Apparently, after the story was published, Anna and her people were livid. “All hell broke loose,” he says. “Her office was insisting I print a retraction.” There is still bad blood between Gunn and Wintour, which Gunn confirmed to Hollywood Life when they asked him why he wasn’t at the Met Gala, “I’m not a fan of the hostess,” he quipped. “We’re arch enemies. We’re sparring partners. We’re constantly spitting venom at each other. I am a truth-teller and some other people don’t like to accept responsibly for their actions.” Ouch! It’s always surprising to hear fashion people speak against Wintour, but clearly, Gunn is not afraid to keep it 100. Just another reason to love him, I guess.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are opening their first flagship store for The Row out in L.A. tomorrow.  The new digs are located at 8440 Melrose Place, and will carry all 170 pieces from their collection. The shop, which the twins set up to look like a living space within a store, has an east gallery, which carries tees and sweaters, while you’ll find evening bags, gowns, and Manolo Blahnik pumps in the west. But the best part about the space? It comes complete with its own pool–and towels, for anyone looking to take a dip. Though this is a big stride for the Olsens and their brand, Ashley says the flagship will open with little fanfare: “It was important to us to open up our doors quietly. We’re not going to have a party or anything; we want to make sure it’s set up properly, merchandised properly, that things are working. Maybe in a month or so we’ll do a dinner. For now, we just want to be open and get feedback from people close to us.” (WWD)
