John Galliano’s Outfit Offensive to Homeless
The disgraced designer commits another Fashion Week faux-pas
John Galliano’s Fashion Week drama continues. Just one day after supposedly dressing like a Hasid, the controversial designer made another fashion faux pas. Stepping out in sagging camouflage pants, a ratty green canvas jacket, mismatched scarf, and ill-fitting cape, Galliano’s look is more Raggedy Andy than Oscar de la Renta—and it’s downright offensive to the homeless community.
Has Abe Foxman’s new bestie set his sights on yet another minority group to target with his sartorial venom? His unstructured felt hat and stringy unwashed hair reek of condescension, the hatred so palpable even his mini dog is trying to get away.
Who’s next, Galliano? Who?!
