We're avidly following the Paris trial of John Galliano via livetweets by @GQFashion and the Wall Street Journal's Christina Passariello. Galliano has been on the stand for a few minutes now, and, to be fair, his testimony is very sad—his addictive personality, the death of his father, and the death of his longtime collaborator Stephen Robinson, compounded with increased pressure at Dior following the crash of 2008.
