According to a report this morning by Suzy Menkes at the International Herald Tribune, disgraced designer John Galliano has left Paris and has entered rehab at the behest of his friends, including supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. Reports indicate that Galliano is likely at The Meadows, a rehabilitation center in Wickenberg, Arizona, whose celebrity client list has also included Elton John and Donatella Versace.
Galliano was dismissed yesterday from his post as chief designer at Christian Dior after a video of a racist rant wherein he declares, "I love Hitler," surfaced on the internet. When we first heard Galliano was headed to Arizona for treatment, we wanted to make the headline, "Galliano headed to Arizona, will fit right in." But maybe jokes about rampant, prevalent racism aren't that funny?
