Just a few months out from September's pressure-cooked Fashion Week over a deep-fried bed of fragile egos, it seems everyone involved in the great Cathy Horyn-on-Oscar de la Renta-on-Cathy Horyn amusement park food fight is back to being professional. WWD reports that Oscar's people ushered Cathy backstage before his pre-Fall 2013 show.

She wore the designer's dress and he said this: "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. I read every single article she writes on fashion. I never hold grudges." Hedi Slimane, Lady Gaga, what say you?
