John Galliano’s transformation from social pariah to reconstituted couturier is in full swing. As expected, tomorrow he’ll tape an hour, without breaks, on the Charlie Rose show, to be aired in the near future on PBS. It’s thought that no topic will be off limits.
He follows in the footsteps of fellow designers Oscar de la Renta (who helped nab the gig), Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs — though none who’s had to claw their way back the way Galliano has. Meanwhile, arriving on newsstands now, the July issue of Vanity Fair contains a lengthy, quite revealing interview with Galliano by Ingrid Sischy.
