Ex-Dior creative director John Galliano is back in Paris after a stint in rehab (allegedly, Stateside in Arizona) to face his three accusers—one of whom is only asking for a symbolic 1 euro (about $1.50) in restitution. The other, her partner whom Galliano allegedly called an "Asian bastard," is asking for €220,000 (about $330,000) in damages. Here is Galliano entering the courtroom for his trial, which began about an hour ago in Paris. Note the subdued look—sans the usual Galliano flair.
