For many Jews, memory of centuries of persecution creates a complicated relationship with Catholic art and fashion.
British fashion designer John Galliano is returning to work in the fashion industry two years after he was fired from Christian Dior for an anti-Semitic rant caught on video.
John Galliano, the former Christian Dior fashion head who was fired after making anti-Semitic slurs in a Paris cafe, dressed as a Chasidic Jew at New York Fashion Week.
A French labor relations court agreed to hear designer John Galliano’s case against Christian Dior, which fired him for making anti-Semitic remarks.
Designer John Galliano reportedly has filed an $18.7 million lawsuit against Christian Dior, the fashion house that fired him for anti-Semitic speech.
All that grueling ballet training has served Natalie Portman well. Not only did she get an Oscar for her performance in “Black Swan,” a role that required her to train as a ballerina for eight hours a day, but now she’s landed a Christian Dior campaign that pays homage to her turn as a haunted diva.
Natalie Portman’s “Black Swan” days may be behind her, but the actress was still the belle of the ball at the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala on May 10. Not quite a year after the birth of her son, Aleph, Portman looked as slim and elegant as ever in a feminine, tiered Christian Dior gown in navy blue. On her arm, of course, was handsome hubby and ballet great Benjamin Millepied.
It was the alcohol and drugs talking, not John Galliano.
