First, New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn called Oscar de la Renta a "hot dog" in a review of his spring 2013 collection. Then de la Renta took out a full-page ad in WWD complaining about Horyn, as we noted previously.  Then Lady Gaga added fuel to the fire by tweeting in support of the designer. And now Horyn's boyfriend, Art Ortenberg (he's a co-founder of Liz Claiborne Inc.) has rallied to the defense of Horyn and critics everywhere in a letter to the editor of WWD: "I feel it necessary to cudgel Gaga for her badly informed, dumbing-down opinion that an uninformed opinion is as valid as that of a seasoned critic...Grow up, Gaga."
