Nicola Formichetti is fuming mad over W magazine misquoting him in their July issue.
The quote in question has to do with the Mugler creative director not wanting to work with fat people, which couldn't be further from the truth.
Here's the exact excerpt:
"I was only used to dressing models and skinny kids and I turned up and it was, like, three fat guys. I just left. That was the last time I tried to work with fat people. I think one of them was Ali G’s brother. It was so ghetto.”
After finding this out, Nicola set the record straight on Facebook by posting pictures from various photo shoots including V magazine's plus-size issue, which he styled.
Some of the captions read:
i know i should just leave it but…i really hate when writers just write whatever they want… "i dont work with fat people…" why would someone say such a thing?!
