The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Giorgio Armani Responds to Cavalli’s ‘Little King’ Tirade, Cathy Horyn’s Boyfriend Comes to Her Defense in de la Renta/ Gaga Beef, and Eyebrow Transplant Procedures Growing in Popularity

• Last week, Roberto Cavalli took to his blog to complain about the slot the Camera Nazionale della Moda gave him to show his Spring 2013 collection on the Milan Fashion Week calendar. “As usual, the Camera Nazionale della Moda is washing its hands of the situation and it will not go against the wishes of Little King Armani, and therefore the problems are mine alone,” Cavalli griped. “What can I do? Do I stay the final day, running the risk that some foreign journalists will forgo my show, or should I overlap with smaller fry, smaller brands, acting as some of my colleagues do?” Well, Armani got word of his statements, and responded with a light lil’ read for Mr. Cavalli. Said Armani, “Cavalli should be quiet because the Little King could start to get angry.” The shade is real, kids. (Vogue UK)

• The Cathy Horyn/ Oscar de la Renta/ Lady Gaga beef continues with a word from Horyn’s current boyfriend, Art Ortenberg. The Liz Claiborne widower wrote in to WWD: “True, Cathy Horyn is my girlfriend. Nevertheless, I feel it necessary to cudgel Gaga for her badly informed, dumbing-down opinion that an uninformed opinion is as valid as that of a seasoned critic — as though Gaga and Bridget Foley of WWD or David Denby of The New Yorker or Ben Brantley of The New York Times or Brooks Atkinson or Pauline Kael or any professional critic is just another opinion and that Gaga’s vacuous thoughts deserve the same status. Grow up, Gaga.” Hmm, it’s sweet that he’s standing up for his girl, but was this really necessary? What do you think? (WWD)

Brows laid like Cleopatra

• So, apparently, brow transplants are a thing. Women (who happen to have extra cash lying around) are eschewing pencils and powders, to instead run to their plastic surgeons in pursuit of brows like Megan Fox and the Kardashian sisters. The procedure takes about three hours and can cost anywhere between $4,000 and $8,000. Not gonna lie, this sort of thing sounds super appealing to me. I always go to the threaders asking for Kim K brows, and they laugh at me because I don’t have nearly enough hair for that sort of thing. But what do you think? Would you pay $8,000 for a pair of killer brows? (NYP)
