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?!

It’s right in front of you, Adam. With those pants, he’s clearly mocking veterans.

Poupic says:

Get a life! Who care how this nudnik is dressing? You have nothing else to worry about? Just do the right thing. Ignore him!

It’s obvious this guy is enjoying the attention.

I’d prefer the final line of this piece be: “Who’s Galliano?”
Personally, I’d rather this mentally ill narcissist not get any more attention.

arktikwolf says:

People put way too much store into appearances.
I, personally enjoy the mixing of diverse sartorial elements.
It reveals panache, creativity and individuality. Some people
just can’t handle anyone “out of uniform.” I remember when
long hair (an inch over the collar) got you suspended from
high-school, not to mention taunts of: “What are you, a boy or
a girl?” And, wearing a pair of bell-bottoms could get you
beaten up . . . On thing I have learned; stupidity and hostility
are always in style.

Simon Cooper says:

This disturbed guy is nothing but a clown. He’s too stupid and insensitive to realise the people he insults.

Pulleeze – he’s not trying to offend anyone. He’s just doing what he wants to do. Perhaps he’s trying NOT to be recognized. WHY IS THIS NEWS? Pay more attention to your inner self and less attention to others’ outer selves.

You get the sense of, “Whatever this guy wears, he’s gonna look like a schmuck” Although the only thing I find offensive about the whole thing is how he makes money out of it. Then, nobody’s ever offered to pay me to dress as a clown – so what do I know?.
