Guess what? Dior designer John Galliano is turning 50 this November. We know, right? He hasn't aged a day since 23. Seriously. The dude still dresses like a pirate sometimes, he rocks. In honor of the occasion, Galliano talked to Bazaar about his favorite moments: "From the moment I graduated, I have been on this amazing rollercoaster ride, from London to Paris, Givenchy to Dior; there have been so many amazing moments... I would pick all of them, not just one. I've had my highs and I've had my lows, and I've loved every minute of it. I don't dwell on the past too much, and I don't really think about what I'm going to be doing in 10 or 20 years. I pretty much like to live in the present. Yeah, I mean if you're worrying too much about what is happening in the past or in the future, you miss what we're doing in the present, which is living." [Bazaar UK]
