Back to Business for Oscar de la Renta, Cathy Horyn

All appears to have been forgiven between the designer and the New York Times' fashion critic.

HOLD THE BUN: All appears to have been forgiven between Oscar de la Renta and Cathy Horyn. After what might be best described as the she-said-hot-dog-he-said-stale-three-day-old-hamburger standoff, the designer welcomed the fashion critic backstage before showing his pre-fall collection Monday night. More than a few front-rowers took notice when president Alex Bolen ushered Horyn through. Afterward, Bolen said he was not at all surprised that Horyn turned up. “She’s a pro and she has a job to do,” he said.

Horyn, too, was very much back to business. Asked if everything had been ironed out as she headed for the elevator, she said there was never anything unironed. As another olive branch to de la Renta, Horyn wore one of the designer’s dresses and made a point of telling Bolen, according to one staffer.

While greeting well-wishers, de la Renta was even more unruffled. “She came to see me before the show and I told her we probably approach fashion in two different ways. I respect her way and I hope she respects my way. My vision of fashion is for my customers,” he said. “I read every single article she writes on fashion. I never hold grudges.”

So was it as though the dust-up never happened? “Of course it happened...” de la Renta said smiling good-naturedly. “It takes two to tango.”
