Galliano heckled as he touches down in LAX

12 Apr

Poor Galliano. As if he hasn’t learnt from his drunken mistakes already, the downtrodden designed even got heckled by the paparazzi after checking out of rehab on Sunday.

The ex-Dior designer was in LA after completing his one-month rehab stint and made no comment to the attacks from the press. Although the quality of this photo is poor, you can see this is a broken man who is looking ar from his best in dark sunglasses and plain clothes.

One paparazzo even shouted “fucking racist” at him, to which he still did not respond.

Don’t know why they’re getting involved, for the last few months he’s been keeping them in a job with all the news coverage he has provided!

No-one is sure how long he will stay in LA before he has to attend his court appearance in Paris in June. If convicted he could get up to six months in prison!

Galliano catwalk show cancelled!

4 Mar

Looks like its gone from bad to worse as John Galliano’s namesake show has been cancelled in Paris Fashion Week.

Galliano’s press office has confirmed that his show will only go ahead in presentation format and not as a catwalk show.

In a statement released by his London lawyers, Galliano said:

“I only have myself to blame and I know that I must face up to my own failures and that I must work hard to gain people’s understanding and compassion. To start this process I am seeking help and all I can hope for in time is to address the personal failure which led to these circumstances and try and earn people’s forgiveness.

“I have fought my entire life against prejudice, intolerance and discrimination, having been subjected to it myself. In all my work my inspiration has been to unite people of every race, creed, religion and sexuality by celebrating their cultural and ethnic diversity through fashion. That remains my guiding light.

“Anti-semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologise for my behaviour in causing any offence.”

Makes you think twice about opening your mouth when your drunk doesn’t it?

Galliano shown the Di-or!

Galliano leaving the police station

Galliano has been sensationally sacked from fashion house, Dior, after an earlier video surfaced of him making seriously racist remarks whilst drunk in Paris.

See the shocking video here.

The chief-designer has been caught on camera declaring “I love Hitler” and telling two women that they should be gassed, which topped off his remarks made last week.

A woman is also heard in the video saying:  “Oh my God” before asking Galliano if he has a problem, to which he replied, “”With you. You’re ugly.”

Actress of the moment, Natalie Portman, who is Jewish, and also the face of a Dior perfume at the moment,  put in her two pence saying she vowed to cut all ties with Galliano.

“I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano’s comments that surfaced,” she said. “In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr Galliano in any way.

Announcing he would be fired, Sifney Toldeano, managing director of the French label, said: “I condemn in the strongest terms the things said by John Galliano”. He said they were “in complete opposition to the essential values that have always been defended by the Christian Dior house”.

Dior has refused to comment on if this will affect their show, next Tuesday.

The shocking tirade from John Galliano is going to have a huge impact on the fashion house, of which Galliano was chief designer, but could also lead to someone getting a VERY lucky break.

Oh Galliano

25 Feb

John Galliano aka THE designer at Dior as gone and got himself into a spot of trouble to say the least.

The infamous designer has got himself SUSPENDED as creative director of the fashion house after claims he racially abused a couple in a cafe in Paris yesterday.

Galliano, who has been getting himself ready for Paris Fashion Week, which starts next Tuesday,apparently said anti-Semitic comments to the pair whilst drunk, as well as exchanging a slap or two. In France, this type of comment can lead to a punishment of up to six months in prison.

Having previously won Fashion Designer of the Year, not once, not twice, but FOUR times, you would think this is a man who would know how to handle himself in the public eye. Yes fashion designers can be eccentric, maybe even a little bit crazy, but racist?

Mr Galliano’s lawyer, told AFP that the designer “formally denies the accusations of anti-Semitism made against him”.

If the allegations are true, John Galliano, who is also rumored to be number one favorite to design Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, could very well have learnt a very very hard lesson – if your known, a silly drunken comment can get you in a lot of trouble.

THIS WEEK IS: Paris Haute Couture Week

26 Jan

This week was Paris Haute Couture Week. And with Haute Couture being my favourite, I thought I’d try and decipher what trends are going to come from it.

Armani went spaceage with irradecent fabrics in pewter and silver.

Dior did the opposite with the models being styled in a painterly way.

Givenchy, whos collection comprised of just ten gowns, went mental for oriental.

And Karl Lagerfeld dazzled us with crystals in Chanel’s fairy tale show.
