Nicola Formichetti with Daphne Guinness
Race and weight are always controversial subjects and Nicola Formichetti has found himself in the middle of a controversy in relation to the latter.
After W released an article on him expressing a 'distaste' of overweight people, the stylist has hit back explaining that the writer miscontrued what he said. “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?!” Formichetti said on his Twitter this week. “You dont need to be skinny to look gorgeous!!! heres another favourite picture i created for v magazine. dont believe everything you read on line please….” And he didn' stop there: “ok. im going to stop.. but one last thing. lol . just so you all know i just worked with beth ditto and also another iconic non-skinny person for the next issue of VMAN with steven klein so dont read everything you read on line – love you all.”
