Designer Isaac Mizrahi really does not like John Galliano. At the MCC Theather's Annual Musical Spectacular Gala at the Hammerstein Ballroom last night, Mizrahi gave his full opinion without holding back.
"I guess I’m the wrong one to talk to, because I never really liked sort of what he did so much. I liked better what McQueen did. I liked better what Vivienne Westwood did. So now I don’t like it, and he’s a Jew hater? I was like, buh-bye… Galliano was more of a fetishist to me. He was more of a fetishist than a democrat. And I refer to him in the past tense, because I don’t think he’ll work again. I hope not. I hope he doesn’t work again."
Wow. The last time that Mizrahi and Galliano crossed paths was during the filming of Mizrahi's documentary Unzipped, in which Galliano made an appearance fifteen years ago. Mirahi did explain that he is more into the works of Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood because of their "lighter touch". Galliano's work is more like, "a pretty picture that had absolutely no relation to the world I live in." He adds, "I guess that’s what couture has become. Pretty pictures in that way, you know what I mean? Where sort of, I guess, McQueen kind of applied it this way. He took these pretty pictures and mixed them with loads of funny, ironic images and kind of brought it into a woman I actually relate to in life."
