i love when industry people aren't caught up i the politics and speak their mind. Of course it's usually someone of Grace's caliber but I applaud her speaking about Galliano nonetheless

The Galliano's autobiography is a joke, in the S moda note also said that he will be the guest editor for the next issue of the magazine, december 28th it's like april's fool in Spain, México and other countries.

Imo, he should write an autobiography. Not the greatest of jokes, though.

I miss him so much. Fashion isn't the same without this great artist.

John Galliano wins first round in court battle with former employer Christian Dior.
This is probably going to get worse before it gets better, but as of right now John Galliano can rest easy knowing he's won the first round of his battle with former employer Christian Dior.

The designer, who fell from grace after making anti-semitic remarks that were caught on tape, headed to court in Paris on Monday to make claims against Christian Dior Couture and the John Galliano brand (Dior owns 91% of the designer's namesake line).

His lawyer, Chantal Giraud-van Gaver of Coblence & Associés, argued against Dior lawyer Jean Néret's insistence that the case must be heard in a commercial court due to the complex nature of Galliano's contracts.

After the court ruled in Galliano's favor, the 52-year-old designer was seen coming out of the courthouse with a smile on his face. Though he kept mum, his lawyer, speaking to reporters, said:

“This jurisdiction is very, very cluttered, and therefore the delays are very, very long. The proof is that we just lost time because instead of hearing our full arguments, the court has to explore the question of its competence. For the time being, we are winning."

Though Giraud-van Gaver did not reveal the amount that Galliano is seeking in the case, she explained:

“There are several arguments. One is based on nullity, one takes into account his health, one argues that his dismissal was ill-founded, so depending on what the court retains, there are different degrees of compensation involved. He was at the company for a long time and he had a big salary, so the sums demanded will necessarily be high.”

For his part, Galliano looked sharp in skinny black trousers, black trench coat, and dotted scarf, because whether you are suing or getting sued, it's important to look good.

N'est-ce pas?



At a preliminary legal hearing in Paris today, a French court green-lit John Galliano's lawsuit against Dior concerning the circumstances of his scandalous dismissal in March 2011. The case will now proceed to a commercial court due to the complex nature of Galliano's former contracts with Dior. But enough of all that legal jargon — what did Galliano wear? What kind of money are we talking here? We've weeded out the most interesting tidbits from WWD's report, including details on the designer's clothing allowance from back in the Dior days.

His court outfit: A skinny-trousered black suit and black shirt, probably designed by himself.

His mode of transportation: A black Citroën C2 car, driven by a chauffer.

What he consumed at the court house: Sips of water from a "small bottle."

How much Galliano was paid for his work at Dior: An annual salary of 1 million euros ($1.3 million at current exchange), plus annual bonuses of up to 700,000 euros depending on sales figures (about $906,400), an annual clothing allowance of 30,000 euros ($38,850), and a grooming budget for personal appearances of 60,000 euros ($77,700).

How much Galliano was paid for his work at his eponymous brand: An annual salary of 2 million euros ($2.6 million), minus a percentage dependent on how much money the house lost every year, since it never made a profit. He also got another annual clothing budget of 70,000 euros ($90,650).

How much more Galliano made doing other things: According to Dior's lawyers, Galliano commanded additional fees for consulting on his own brands' ad campaigns and making appearances at catwalk shows.

Total maximum value of Galliano's compensation per year, approximately: €3.86, or about $5.22 million.

It's unclear what exactly Galliano is seeking from Dior; last August, his spokesperson wouldn't even confirm the lawsuit's existence.
