Top 10 fashion feuds of all time

Fashion feud: Nicolas Ghesquière vs. Balenciaga

The claim: Balenciaga has taken the court case against its former creative director into mediation. The fashion house alleged that Ghesquière was in breach of confidentiality for comments made in an interview with Sysem magazine in April 2013. "I began to feel as though I was being sucked dry, like they wanted to steal my identity while trying to homogenise things," he was quoted at the time. "It just wasn't fulfilling anymore." The verdict: While we await the public outcome, Ghesquière's lawyers have argued that the designer made the comments as a critique of the entire fashion industry, not specifically Balenciaga.

Fashion feud: Cara Delevingne vs. Vogue

The claim: An unflattering profile of Delevingne appeared in Vogue earlier this year insinuating that the top model slept through her interview (twice!) because of late-night partying (with Lily Allen, allegedly). The social media savant then fired off a series of tweets expressing her disgust over the questioning of her work ethic. The verdict: Cara smiles happily on the September Vogue cover, alongside model BFFs Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss. All good now, we presume. 10 celebs with the best personal style

The claim:You know that blurry, security camera hotel elevator pic: the one that captures Beyoncé's little sister lunging at Jay Z over his too-close-for-comfort relationship with designer Rachel Roy. The verdict: After a hotel conceirge promptly leaked the video footage (and was promptly fired) Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange released this statement: "At the end of the day, families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same." What is modern power dressing?

The claim: Two years ago, Cathy Horyn, then-New York Timesfashion critic, used the term "hot dog" in a review of Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2013 collection.
