(via Ann Friedman)
Oh people say ‘oh you’re so tall and oh my god you’re so skinny’, that’s not nice because you don’t say to anybody ‘oh my god you’re so fat’ like you know. I hated it when people say to me ‘oh my god you’re so skinny’, I hated it. Now they say it too but I know I think yeah great thanks
John Galliano F/W 2007
This collection was a flashback to Galliano’s signature skills in his first years in Paris. The theme heavily referenced costumes that brought out deep-red Poiret-era coats whorled into asymmetric rose ruffles, high-waisted redingotes, flower-printed tea dresses, and a multiplicity of his classic bias-cut gowns, in everything from black velvet and sheer lace to face-powder pink and dusty-tangerine chiffon. The roll of credits included Stephen Jones’ millinery, Pat McGrath’s makeup, Julien d’Ys hair, and Michael Howells’ set design. All played crucial supporting roles in bringing the show to full cinematic form.
