  1. This show is making me cry! I love it! the feel is what Fashion is all about!

    By the way . . . what did Galliano do?

  2. Galliano was drunk in a cafe and told 2 Jews sitting at the table next to him that they were ugly, their ancestors should have been gassed, and that he loved Hitler.

    Natalie Portman had just been named the new face of Dior, and she's Jewish.

    That said, Coco Chanel was a Nazi collaborator, and yet she's still an icon. Dior was a drunken, racist fool, and he did this in France, where you can get arrested for hateful speech, and when he was arrested, and videos surfaced of the event, and people came forward about similar events, Dior fired him.

  3. Ah . . . sad. He is amazing. I hope he continues to design.

    And Natalie is amazing and beautiful.

  4. I've been thinking about the duality of human nature, the cruelty and creativity, and how its really hard to reconcile both in the same person. That someone can destroy others yet create so much beauty is confusing.

    I'm sure he will continue to design, but without financial backing, he won't be able to make the couture gowns that he loves. Obviously he has to do a very public penance in order for any fashion house to consider taking him on.

    On a slight tangent, I was thinking about that guy who put a stink bomb in your tent, the one who committed suicide recently. I remember being so angry at him when I heard what he did to you and Nathan. When Nathan told me that a guy had killed himself, I felt so much compassion for him, and when I found out that he was the same guy, things got complicated. I never even met him, and yet he evoked such strong feelings from me. He must have suffered so much, who knows what the cause, for him to take his life like that. And maybe that suffering is what caused him to be a bully. Some of us take our hurt and anger and turn it in on ourselves. That's depression. Some of us turn that anger and hurt on others, especially others who might represent the parts of us we wish weren't there. Thinking about him, and how he ended, might help you to take the sting out of the things people say that hurt. How miserable must they be that they turn their pain on to you? I know it's wrong to bully, and it hurts so much when it's done to us, but at least you know that you're not ugly inside. They are. That's why they're mean.
