Cathy Horyn Career
In 2002, the Council of Fashion Designers of America got the Eugenia Sheppard Award for questioning the job and exposing Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s deal-making 5.
In January 2010, when insinuating in an article that actress Christina Hendricks was big, Horyn was commonly criticized. Hendricks ‘ picture included in Horyn’s article has been distorted by widening, probably to demonstrate Horyn’s point wrong. The New York Times substituted the picture, claiming it was only mildly accidentally distorted owing to a routine processing mistake.
Horyn also wrote a critical article on Jersey Shore TV star Snooki in 2010, in which she described Snooki as a “turnip turned on her tip.” She wrote that talking to her “is like getting down on your hands and knees with a child” and noted that Snooki had “read only two books in her life”
Horyn’s analysis of Chelsea Clinton’s selection of gown and dress for her wedding indicated: “Ms. Clinton’s dress, on the other side, proposed a totally distinct connection with fashion [ than Horyn’s other wedding gowns had reviewed] even, perhaps, an ambivalent one. In 2011, Lady Gaga wrote a column for V Magazine challenging the views of some critics ‘ supremacy over the views of the general people, as well as their not being really interested in the arts but merely in criticizing, where she referred to Horyn as a predictable critic like many others.
Horyn’s scathing review of the spring/summer 2013 collection by Oscar de la Renta in September 2012, in which she called him a “hotdog of American fashion,” gained a lot of adverse media. In an open letter released in WWD, De la Renta criticized the absence of professionalism and the often private nature of her notorious reviews, stating that if he was a “hotdog,” then Horyn might be a “stale 3-day old hamburger.
Through Fashionologie.com, Horyn later discussed the designer’s response, defending her word choice of hotdog: “I used the term in a professional context as someone showing off his tricks like a surfer. Designer Hedi Slimane further criticized Horyn’s unprofessionalism in a self-made newspaper column released on Twitter, speculating her career as a publicist masquerading as a journalist in the New York Times. He relates to Horyn’s preference for designer Raf Simons in Slimane’s letter and adds.
As far as I’m worried, at Saint Laurent[ show] she’ll never get a place, but at Dior, she could get 2 for 1. She ought to be happy. Critics[ sic], I don’t mind, but they have to come from a fashion critic, not a disguised publicist. I’m quite hesitant that she got away with it for so many years. “Horyn wrote a negative review of Slimane’s collection for Saint Laurent, though she wasn’t a collector.
