The grudge match between Azzedine Alaïa and Anna Wintour raged on yesterday in Paris when the fashion designer showed his first couture show in eight years and allegedly banned the powerful editrix (and any of her staffers) from attending. The two have had issues with each other for awhile (Point Alaïa: His zinger, "no one will remember Anna Wintour in the history of fashion." Point Wintour: She didn't invite him to the 2009 Met Ball that she organized.) Well, not to worry, it's not like she sat at home crying into her Ben & Jerry's while catching up on Netflix. She partied with the young folks at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 premiere, instead. [HuffPo Style]
