John Galliano’s In British Vogue With Kate Moss, But We Haven’t Forgotten His “I Love Hitler” Comments

John Galliano's In British Vogue With Kate Moss, But We Haven't Forgotten His "I Love Hitler" Comments

Kate Moss is on the December cover of British Vogue and inside, she’s featured in a shoot with her her bestie, ostracized anti-Semitic designer John Galliano.  It seems like this high-profile appearance might herald Galliano’s return to the fashion world in earnest, but even if he’s been accepted back into the fold by the fashion elite, I’m thinking it’s going to be a bit difficult for the rest of the world to forget that he was recorded in 2011 saying things like “I love Hitler.” More »

John Galliano Continues To Apologize, Elicit Sympathy, In First Televised Interview Since Racial Incident

John Galliano Continues To Apologize, Elicit Sympathy, In First Televised Interview Since Racial Incident

A little over a week ago, John Galliano broke his silence following two years of rehab and self-examination with a pathos-laden interview in Vanity Fair. For many, it drove home just how much he has suffered and how hard he’s worked to make amends, as well as what a terrible state he was in at the time. But he didn’t stop there. Last night, Galliano appeared on Charlie Rose to discuss some of those same issues in his first video interview since his racial outburst. More »

Do You Hate Victoria Beckham?

Do You Hate Victoria Beckham?

Hey! Turns out people hate Victoria Beckham. Huffington Post created a list of the most hated people in fashion. Most of them won’t surprise you – Anna Wintour is often thought to be the Devil, John Galliano is indeed anti-Semitic, Oliva Palermo got famous mostly for being on a TV show, and so forth. But the addition of Victoria Beckham did surprise me (in the number two slot, just below Anna Wintour, no less). More »

The New York Post Tries To Make It Look Like John Galliano Is Being Anti-Semitic Again

The New York Post Tries To Make It Look Like John Galliano Is Being Anti-Semitic Again

“Jew-bash designer” John Galliano has suffered mightily for the semi-coherent anti-Semitic rant he went on one fateful night in France. He was fired from his job at Dior, fined $8,400, and mocked all over the world. (To be clear, I agree that mockery is an appropriate response to hate speech.) But since then, he’s gone to rehab and apologized repeatedly to all the people he offended. So why, then, with his comeback seemingly close at hand, would he suddenly decide to dig the hole deeper by dressing up like a Hasidic Jew at New York Fashion Week? More »

Crystal Renn Models Sexy Lingerie In A Gas Station

Crystal Renn Models Sexy Lingerie In A Gas Station

First of all, let’s give a big high five to Agent Provocateur for casting Crystal Renn in their latest campaign. Though Renn may seem tiny, she does exist in the strange, seemingly empty world between “straight” and “plus” size models–which is to say, her presence still represents positive change in an industry that desperately needs it. Also, she is super hot.
