Armani addresses ‘Capegate’ – and Madonna’s not going to like it

Madonna’s onstage BRIT Awards tumble, or ‘Capegate’, as it is being referred to, has been one of the biggest talking points of the week.

And while Madonna has taken a dignified stance on the debacle, one person who wasn’t afraid to be a little bit controversial is the designer of the now infamous cape, Giorgio Armani.

Naturally, talk turned to the embarrassing incident during the Emporio Armani AW15 show in Milan this weekend, and the designer didn’t exactly hold back when quizzed over Madonna’s fall.

“Madonna, as we know, is very difficult. This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands. That’s all there is to it,” he told the Associated Press, with a smile.

Of course, Madonna had laid blame on the cape, claiming that it had been tied too tightly for her to work with during her performance.

While Giorgio’s take on the situation seems pretty fair, we wonder what Madonna will have to say about being branded “difficult”!
