This was such a beautiful collection (Dior Couture, the season escapes me though). I am so mad at John Galliano for his horrible offensive behaviour and he is such a frickin’ genius too. It kills me, really.
Dior by Demarchelier just came in the mail. Yay!
Beautiful book, stunning photos. This is a stunning full-stop to the Galliano period, even though there are some photos pre- and post-Galliano. About 95% of my faves here were Galliano and I’d say a small majority of photos cover his tenure. Sighs.
As far as I can tell, Dior still remains head-designerless. I’ve mentioned the Galliano scandal before, but I’ve been reticent in making any comments, because I’m still not exactly sure what to think. John Galliano has to be my number one, far and away favourite designer ever. How does one incorporate that with such unacceptable behaviour and more seriously (in this case) sentiments?

“I feel like I’m having a fashion orgasm,” said Cate Blanhett of her John Galliano gown at the 1998 Oscars (where she was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Elizabeth).
You and me both, Cate. You and me both.
