Fashion Weekly Update

Hey my tellusfashion junkies, I’m back again for another week with all the fashion gossip.

This week John Galliano was found guilty in Paris!!!!

John Galliano had his day in court this week, where a correctional court in Paris, gave the verdict on the none present designer. Which of course came back as “Guilty”, for uttering racist and anti-Semitic comments in a Paris cafe.

The court handed down a total fine of €17,500, which includes €4,000 for February’s alcohol-fueled, anti-Semitic rant in a café that cost him his job as creative director at Dior, and €2,000 for a similar outburst last October. The ruling fell far shy of the maximum fine possible. The designer will also pay over €5,000 in legal fees and a symbolic euro in damages to each plaintiff and to five anti-racist organizations that had brought a civil suit.

As expected, Galliano will serve no prison time. In its comments, the court noted that despite his triple addiction (alcohol, sleeping pills, Valium), Mr Galliano was lucid enough to be conscious of his acts. That the designer had become “a ghost of himself,” and the loss of his iconic status was punishment enough, noted the lawyer for Geraldine Bloch, one of the plaintiffs.

With the trial closed, an announcement is expected from Dior shortly about Galliano’s successor.

On to something not so fashion, but more gossip. During Fashion’s Night Out last evening the Kardashian store DASH, in Soho was surrounded by thousand’s of people and had to be shut down by the police.The Jersey Shore’s Pauly D contributed to the mass hysteria of fans when DJing the party held in the very small store.Things really got out of hand when Pauly D left, causing fans to jump the steel barricades in an attempt to touch the reality star.

‘Just Married’ Moss

It’s here. The September issue of US Vogue has hit the news stands.

If the cover is anything to go by, shot by the now ‘Mrs Hince’s friend and fashion photographer, Mario Testino (who was official wedding photographer for the day), the readers are in for a real treat. The pages of the magazine are doused with portraits and pictures from the most anticipated wedding since the ‘other’ Kate tied the knot – and Tellus has to say, Mossy gave Middy a run for her money.

Capturing tender moments between blushing bride and (many, many) bridesmaids, guests and delicate details that made the day, the snaps are backed up by  an article by Hamish Bowles who reported on the day and who also managed to get an interview with the ‘Just Married’ model. If that wasn’t excitement enough John Galliano, one of Moss’ closest friends and now infamous (maybe for all the wrong reasons), comments in the article on the big day – which he designed the dress for, obviously.

There isn’t much more that Tellus can say on the matter – the pictures say a thousand words, and more….


Fashion Weekly News Update!!!!!!!!!!

In fashion news this week our resident channel four fashion guru, Gok Wan will be switching hats for that of achef in his new cooking show which is also sponsored by channel four.

Now I hear you ask, what does that mean for resdient chefs on channel four like Jamie and Gordon? Will with his Gok strong following with channel four audiences and us Brits love for Chinese dishes, this might mean its time for them to move over cause there’s a new chef in town.

A channel four spokes woman confirmed to the Daily Mail last week that a “taster tape” was being filmed by Optomen TV producers which will include a mixture of how to instructions on chinese meals and a break down of the culture through Gok’s eyes.

As for me, I can’t wait for this to come on air as watching Gok is one of my guilty pleasures!!!!!!!!

Moving on……………….this week Kate Moss got married aaah finally!!! cheeky I know but with her dating Pete Doherty and that whole mess, I thought it would never happen.

With a lot of back and forth this last month as to who was designing the wedding dress, John Galliano was finally confrimed this week “I wonder how he pulled that off with his court case just last week hmm!!!!!”).

To add to the A-List designers, her maid of honour Trish Simonon’s (Wife to Clash bassist Paul Simonon) dress is designed by Erdem.

Kate’s wedding dress was inspired by zelda Fitzgerald, who’s engagement ring she has been rocking on her finger. It was reported that Galliano did last minute changes to her dress just this week in Europe.

Through the day Kate Moss is expected to make alot of dress changes which we wont get to see until the Vogue September issue which is bound to be a collectors edition so peeps you better place your orders in early cause you know I will, as one of my all time favourite photogrophers Mario Testino will be doning his camera to picture the fashion bonanza event.

Big changes for Fashion House LVMH

Just as Paris Fashion week was kicking off to a great start, news breaks that head designer one the of the fashion house’s biggest names –  Dior – is sacked from the company. Last Thursday John Galliano was accused of anti-semitic and racial abuse and these charges have now been filed according to the Telegraph. This is extremely disappointing news for avid fashion lovers like us here at TellusFashion, Galliano was a fashion master and there was no-one who could do Haute Couture quite like him. I applaud Dior however, as no-one should be given a second chance after doing such things – its truely disgusting.

Someone has got some big boots to fill – who do you think could be in the running for the job and how do you all feel about the recent events at Dior?!

For a man who has such talent and has created some of the most saught after pieces for Dior since 1996, its a big waste. Lets take a look at some of his work over the past few weeks below..
