I was really shocked to find out that John Galliano has been fired from Dior! I heard something yesterday and then woke up today to find out what had happened. I’m wondering who they are going to pick to replace him? He was a great designer! You can read the article below.
Designer John Galliano has been fired as creative director for French fashion house Dior after his alleged anti-Semitic remarks at a bar in Paris. Dior Couture’s chief executive Sidney Toledano said he condemned Galliano’s reported comments “in the strongest terms, which are in total contradiction with the essential values that have always been defended by the Christian Dior house.”
Dior also added that as a consequence it had “immediately suspended relations” with Galliano and that it had “initiated dismissal procedures” regarding the “particularly odious comments” made in the video published on Monday by The Sun website.
The video purported to show the designer saying that he “loves Hitler” before telling horrified guests that their ancestors would have been “f***ing gassed.”
The reported remarks happened at the same bar Parisian bar La Perle where he was arrested last Thursday for threatening behaviour and allegedly making anti-Semitic and racist comments. He was immediately suspended by Dior after his arrest, with the fashion house, owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, citing its “unequivocal zero-tolerance policy regarding anti-Semitism and racism.”
Oscar-winner Natalie Portman, who is the face of Dior fragrance Miss Dior, revealed how she was “deeply shocked and disgusted” by his alleged comments, adding: “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.”
It was rumoured that the star would wear a Dior gown designed by Galliano for Sunday’s Academy Awards, but instead Portman wore a Rodarte dress following his arrest. It’s still not known whether Portman will continue to model for Miss Dior or terminate her contract. Galliano had also recently been announced as the designer of Kate Moss’s wedding dress.

Caleb Followill, of Kings of Leon, was spotted out in Nashville, Tennessee with girlfriend Lily Aldridge late last month. Caleb was wearing a pair of Dior Homme jeans when they were caught out for lunch. I noticed that the rockstars seem to love Dior Homme. Maybe because they make great skinny jeans for the men. Also the great washes might help attract them to the brand as well.
Wow! Lily looks amazing. I find that she is also one of the girls that doesn’t need any make-up at all to be beautiful. She is just so natural. Maybe that was one of the reasons why she was chosen to be in the new Rag & Bone campaign. She was just shot naturally in their clothes for it. You can click here to see the campaign.
Orlando Bloom was spotted out taking a break from fatherhood and work to go eat with a friend in Brentwood, California. Orlando chose to wear a pair of Dior Homme jeans for the day out. Orlando sure has many pairs of Dior Homme jeans in his closet. We haven’t spotted him in many other brands besides Dior Homme.
Orlando chose to also wear a pair that is much baggier than what we usually see him in. I think the look is great on him though. I think it is nice to see that a skinny jean devotee prefers a baggier look here and there, because I know I do every now and then. “What ever works for the look of that day” is my motto.
Joe Jonas from The Jonas Brothers attended the GQ, Cadillac, Lacoste and Patron Tequila Celebrating the Coolest Athletes and the Big Game hosted by Andy Roddick at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas, Texas a couple of days ago. Joe looked very grown up with his stubble and his outfit, he’s definitely changed a lot since he first came on the scene a while back, they all have.
Joe was wearing a pair of Dior Homme skinny jeans with a leather jacket. I thought to myself, wow this wash is beautiful, then as I zoomed in, I saw paint splatters which reminded me of what I saw in London last weekend. In the Dior boutique I saw a beautiful wash but then as I got close to the those I saw paint splatters which completely ruined the wash. These are the exact same pair that I saw in the boutique but I can’t find them anywhere online as they are new. Sometimes I wish designers never put paint on such detailed and in depth washes, paint splatters in my opinion, require a plain wash. You need to get the balance right. These would be absolutely, truly amazing if they had no paint. The wash is incredible!
