Giorgio Armani blames pop star for BRIT famous fall

"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. Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult," he explained to MailOnline.

Fashion designer Giorgio Armani says Madonna is to blame for her embarrassing tumble at the BRIT Awards in London on Wednesday, February 25, 2014.

Armani designed her cape the pop star was wearing during her performance which unwittingly dragged her to the floor.

Madonna told Jonathan Ross on his chatshow that the horrible incident had left her with whiplash.

"Everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it's quite heavy, so they tied it really tight around my neck," she said.

"So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string, and it would not come undone. And my two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell.”

But there was no sympathy from Mr Armani as he showed his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, March 3, which quelle surprise, included a variety of capes built into his garments.
