Making the most of his on-again–off-again comeback, John Galliano may soon submit to a tell-all TV interview with Charlie Rose. While discussions are in the early stages, reports WWD, the vilified designer may soon tape an appearance, which would seem to be his first, and only his second major sit-down, following an interview with Ingrid Sischy for Vanity Fair, also in the works.
Charlie Rose, who occasionally reports for 60 Minutes, is an interviewer of the intrepid, hard-hitting kind, which makes the prospect of Galliano sitting down with him so enticing — no evasive funny business, faux confessionals or croc tears, like the queen of daytime talk shows. Designers Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs have made multiple appearances on the PBS show. Barack Obama, too, has taken questions on the dark, nondescript, unglamorous stage.
Spokespeople at both camps are denying it, which of course makes us think it’s going to happen.
