It wouldn’t be Paris couture week without a fashion catfight! Valentino, the uber-tanned, pug-loving elder statesman of Italian fashion, took a major swipe at design rivals Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in a recent interview, calling them “arrogant.”

Though Valentino, who at 76, is in the throes of staging his last-ever couture collection, had plenty of praise for other Italian designers (calling Donatella Versace “gritty and determined” and praising Miuccia Prada as “stupefying”), he said he had little love for the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, sniping, “The problem with young stylists is that they all want to be famous straightaway and then they all do the same things.”
