John Galliano makes a come back

A few days ago, I told you about the Kate effect. Everything that Kate Moss touched seemed  to bloom again,be it a long gone pop star career as for Sir Paul Mac Cartney or a doomed fashion future as for John Galliano. But the revoked Christian Dior designer is making a come back thanks to the little fairy of fashion.

Kate-Moss-Galliano-Vogue-30Oct13-Tim-Walker_bWhile many still haven’t forgotten John Galliano for his anti Semitic rant back in 2011, Kate lent him a helping hand and asked her friend to design her wedding dress. In an interview with Vanity Fair this past summer, Galliano said that”creating Kate’s wedding dress saved me personally because it was my creative rehab [after getting fired from Dior]. She dared me to be me again.”

And it seems Kate has dared Galliano to be Galliano yet again, teaming up for the British Vogue December issue as the pair appear in portrait in British Vogue’s December 2013 issue, photographed by Tim Walker.”I am now feeling so much love in this studio that it takes me back,” Galliano writes alongside the shot. It’s clear that Vogue UK, like Oscar de la Renta, is ready to endorse the designer once again, despite many industry insiders’ insistence that Galliano continue to pay penance for his past mistakes.

Should fashion industry feel Galliano’s repentance and give him a second chance? Judging by the breath taking pictures down below, I would say yes, totally. After all, even John Galliano is only human. Don’t get me wrong, what he said was despicable and absolutely wrong but we should take the high road and forgive true sorrow.And the new Christian Dior Couture ads by Ralph Simmons are so positively boring. I mean, come on, 3 double pages featuring the same grey coat… This is Haute Couture, creativity, opulence, in a word real art, just not a photo of a peace of garment.
