John Galliano is in La Maison (AKA The House)

Christian Dior: Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture S/S 2009There are certain people who should only create, and never, ever speak.  Into this pool I'd toss folks like Britney Spears, Kanye West, and John Galliano.  (J.G.'s infamous 2011 anti-Semitic rants are shameful.)  I don't know about you but for me, it's difficult to separate the creator from the creation.  Having said that, I can't deny loving Baby One More Time, The College Dropout, and most everything that Galliano has created including the above gown.  Say what you want about the former, but the latter is a fashion genius.  And so the big guns at Maison Martin Margiela (famed French fashion house) are taking a major gamble and making him the boss.  It's a bold move but if all works out, the payoff should be immense, not only in the form of dollars but also in fashion contributions.  I will therefore begin holding my breath (and something tells me I'm not the only one) and praying that Galliano will remain respectively silent on all topics other than clothing.
