Word of the Day: Schadenfreude
Guess who’s rubbing their claws together at the crash and burn-style career death of John Galliano?
“I’m furious, if you want to know. I’m furious that it could happen, because the question is no longer even whether he really said it. The image has gone around the world. It’s a horrible image for fashion, because they think that every designer and everything in fashion is like this. This is what makes me crazy in that story.
The thing is, we are a business world where, especially today, with the Internet, one has to be more careful than ever, especially if you are a publicly known person. You cannot go in the street and be drunk — there are things you cannot do… I’m furious with him because of the harm he did to LVMH and [chairman and ceo] Bernard Arnault, who is a friend, and who supported him more than he supported any other designer in his group, because Dior is his favorite label.
It’s as if he had his child hurt.”
Oh, you rotzig eifersüchtig Hündin, you. Yes. It would be Herr Karl Lagerfeld, who is known for his generosity and kindness toward others…especially the ugly, potato chip eating ones, ja? (Remember this nugget of insight in Focus Magazine from Lagerfeld a couple of years ago?)
“These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly,” Lagerfeld said in an interview with Focus magazine. The creative director of the fashion house Chanel added that the world of fashion was all to do “with dreams and illusions, and no one wants to see round women”.
Doesn’t that just break your heart?
Gyaaaaah. These two bitches. Oh, and it’s being widely reported that Galliano could face up to six months in prison for public racial slurs. I’m sure that Herr Lagerfeld will visit, should that happen.
