It's a sad day for Dior. John Galliano, one of the world's most talented designers is benched and proceedings to have him fired have been initiated by Dior. The man is simply, not able to keep his mouth shut and his opinions to himself.
This may come as a "shock" to Galliano, but it is clear that Christian Dior was left with no choice, as this is his second reported outburst. Sidney Toledano, Dior’s president and chief executive officer, said, “We unequivocally condemn the statements made by John Galliano which are in total contradiction to the longstanding core values of Christian Dior.”.
Galliano is fighting alligations of this anti-Semitic verbal assault that was filed with Paris police. I think someone should remind him that he was CAUGHT ON VIDEO and that his, "wasn't me" approach isn't goint to cut it. His best bet is to take responsibility and do what all of the other "caught-red-handed" celebs do- Blame it on the alcohol, apologize and check himself into rehab. It doesn't change the fact that his remarks were aimed to primarily offend the star-studded individuals who WEAR his designs. Shame, shame.
I don't even know WHAT to say. Hilary Swank's feathery, sparkly Gucci Premier gown literally took my breath away! It was brave, it was bold and it was epic. My favorite gown by far at the Academy Awards this year.
Forgive me if you loved it, but I'm not a fan of the Dolce & Gabbana gown worn by Scarlett Johansson. She didn't pull it off nearly as well as Halle Berry's Elie Saab dress for the 2002 Oscars. Better luck next year.
