Miss: Designer John Galliano makes anti-Semitic comments, gets fired

John Galliano, the noted British fashion designer, was fired by the French fashion house Christian Dior for saying he "loved Hitler," and he'll be facing trial in France over the remarks. Oscar-winner Natalie Portman, who is the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, railed against the designer and said she would no longer be associated with him. Speculation about whether he would appear at Dior's Fashion Week show circulated among fashionistas, but the show went on without its designer. His own namesake brand's show went on as well, in an informal setting. Galliano, who has since checked himself into rehab, also acquired an unlikely ally in Whoopi Goldberg.
