Last week the New York Times ran a great piece on Stella McCartney, in which she revealed that Tom Ford had offered her the role of creative director of Gucci back in 2011 when she left Chloé. Ford has since refuted the claims telling the paper that there had been a misunderstanding. 'It was never a conversation about taking over at Gucci,' he said. 'I think she might have interpreted that at a certain point' but he 'just never corrected her'.
But McCartney is sticking to her statement. 'He's a lying, cheating... what?' she said when she heard Ford's denial. "That's the weirdest thing. Why would he take me into an office and show me every dead animal? Oops!"
