An inexcusable fashion blunder on Armani’s Instagram account almost guarantees that someone on the brand’s social media team got fired.
At the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ 5th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, Nov. 16, Armani posted an Instagram photo of actress Alfre Woodard wearing an Armani dress. Problem? The caption identified Woodard as male actor Idris Elba.
Since the awards ceremony, Armani has yet to issue a formal apology. The fashion megabrand has however deleted the post, but not before a few people were able to take a screen shot of it. In response to the mix-up the hashtag #ArmaniCaptions has arisen, with hilarious results.
Absolutely no one is exempt from being used in response to Armani’s mistake.
