Galliano Dress Forbidden for Israeli Eurovision Contestant

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Israel’s contestant in the international Eurovision music contest was barred from wearing a dress by designer John Galliano, who lost his job as the top designer at Christian Dior two years ago after being arrested for making anti-Semitic statements at a Paris bar.

The Israel Broadcasting Authority, which sponsors the Israeli contestant and broadcasts the popular competition, said it would not allow Moran Mazor to wear the dress that Galliano agreed to design for her.

In May, Mazor will travel to Sweden for Eurovision, where she will sing “Rak Bishvilo,” or “Only for Him.”

Dior’s Galliano Finally Replaced After Anti-Semitic Disgrace

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Disgraced designer John Galliano has finally been replaced as creative director of French fashion house Christian Dior, more than a year after his racist and anti-Semitic drunk tirade in a Paris bar had been captured on video.

Galliano was arrested in February, 2011, and shortly thereafter lost his job.

He was charged with uttering “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity.”

He avoided jail but was fine last September.

This week, Belgian Raf Simons will be taking over from Galliano at Dior.

Simons told the press: “It is with the utmost respect for its tremendous history, its unparalleled knowledge and craftsmanship that I am joining the magnificent house of Dior.”

And, maybe, stick to drinking at home.
