John Galliano has been sacked from his own fashion label

By Andrea Petrou on April 15th, 2011

John Galliano has been sacked from his own fashion label.

The British-born designer – who was sacked from French couture house Christian Dior after going on an anti-Semitic rant in a Parisian cafe during which he said he loved Adolf Hitler – has now also been removed from his post at his self-titled business after the board met and decided to eject him.

Christian Dior, which owns 91 per cent of Galliano’s business, has now received expression of interest from a number of companies interested in purchasing it.

The current in-house design team for the brand is being charged with creating a new collection and is already working on a pre-spring collection.

John Galliano’s show at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year was axed at the last minute following the anti-Jewish rant.

Only a small number of editors and buyers were allowed to see the collection, and he was not in attendance.

After the event, Galliano checked into a rehabilitation facility in the US and released an apology for his actions.

He said: “Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologise for my behaviour in causing any offence.

“I was subjected to verbal harassment and an unprovoked assault when an individual tried to hit me with a chair having taken violent exception to my look and my clothing.

“For these reasons I have commenced proceedings for defamation and the threats made against me.”

Top 5 ballerina flats

Licorice Gold Ballerina Flats

For the ultimate in shoe eye candy, you can't go wrong with these sparkle-dusted flats from Miss KG.

Thanks to the Black Swan phenomenon that’s had absolutely everyone talking, fashion is all about ballet right now. From costume-esque ornate ruffles and adornment at Marchesa and sweet, sugary colours at Stella McCartney, ballet has never been so hot. However, being a ballerina is really really hard (I’ve been doing ballet workouts at home and think I may never walk again), but dressing like one is really very easy and perfect for this spring.

The real, traditional dancer shoes are both painful (or so I’ve heard) and not practical for traipsing up and down the shops in, but ballet flats are. We all own a pair, but with fashion’s obsession with clogs, wedges and skyscraping heels recently we may not have been showing ours as much love as they deserve. After all, they’re our best friend after a long night out in stilettos- we wouldn’t be able to manage the walk of shame home without them. So we’ve searched the high street and found our top 5 favourite ballerina flats out at the moment, ranging from luxurious designer ones to basic failsafe ones. Check them out in the gallery above.

Natalie Portman feels like “a clown” in bold lipstick

By Andrea Petrou on March 10th, 2011

Natalie Portman feels like “a clown” in bold lipstick.

The ‘Black Swan’ actress – who is pregnant with her first child – is slowly agreeing to make-up artists’ requests for her to wear a more dramatic colour on her mouth, but still doesn’t feel entirely comfortable.

She said: “I feel like a clown if I put on strong lipstick, but recently I’ve experimented with reds. Make-up artists have been urging me to try stronger lips, but it still doesn’t feel like me. I’m working on it.”

The brunette beauty also relies on help doing her hair as she claims she doesn’t know how to stop it looking like a “triangle”.

She said: “When you see me, a professional has done my hair – I don’t know how to. As a family, we have very curly ‘Jewish’ hair, when it’s long, it comes out in a triangle.”

Natalie also revealed she developed an interest in perfume from her mother and believes it is important to include scent when “dressing up”.

The Oscar-winning beauty added to Britain’s InStyle magazine: “My mum taught me to spray fragrance and walk into it. She has a sensitive sense of smell, so I’ve grown up with a great awareness.

“A scent that sets you apart makes you feel glamorous and elegant and gives you a different way of walking into a room – it’s part of dressing up.”
