John Galliano: the Newest Initiate into Club SOB

…But in all seriousness, who can trust a man with mermaid hair and a skinny moustache?

In a long line of eccentric male designers (Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Uncle Karl) John Galliano made them all look tame. While they dress umm, “conservatively” for the the fashion world, John Galliano was often as decked out as the girls on his runways.

Galliano was the creative director and head designer of Christian Dior, but fired over a scandal including anti-Semitism, assault, and a video documenting his affinity for Hitler. Allegedly, Natalie Portman was supposed to wear Dior on the Red Carpet for the Oscars but changed to Rodarte last minute because of the scandal.

True to celebrity fashion, John Galliano has publicly apologized and checked himself into rehab. I don’t exactly see how rehab can treat racism, but that’s what Hollywood would like for us to think.

One thing Galliano can be thankful for is that this hit the media at the same time as Charlie Sheen’s insanity peaking. When Mel Gibson offers you his support, you know you have issues.

Perhaps Sheen and Galliano can ban together. Charlie’s fire breathing fists might singe Galliano’s Fabio-esque hair off. That mane could make at least 5 wigs for cancer-stricken children.

    You never can.

    I don’t get the whoel rehab thing either. The only thing that might fix is your ability to control your impulse to speak… it’s not going to change your thoughts or opinions.

    I HATE Mel Gibson and to this day refuse to watch any movie he’s in. At least Charlie Sheen’s just hurting himself, not perpetuating hate… AND now Charlie looks like a good guy (a crazy one at that) because he’s going after more money for his co worker (s??)

      Maybe you prefer a real mustache like Terry Jones?
      Or accurately combed hair, let’s say, like Madoff or Donald Trump?
      And about Charly, who i like, but only hurting himself? Please ask his wife, Brooke or Denise.
      About Gibson you are depriving yourself, if you can’t make a difference between the artist and the man.

    Since Galliano has shown himself to be one anti-semite, I would never ever want to buy any of his stuff to show that I don’t tolerate anti-semites like him. Oh yeah, how I wish his stuff gets boycotted (just my wishful thinking…)
