The cover of this morning's New York Post is a photo of designer John Galliano, wearing an outfit the paper says "stunned New York's Jewish leaders." The article states that Galliano was "dressing like a Hasid to attend pal Oscar de la Renta's Fashion Week show," and includes angry quotes from Jewish community leaders. However, The Cut points out that the look is a repeat: "The exaggerated bowler hat, baggy cropped pants, and long jacket are such well-known components of his uniform that Bill Gaytten, Galliano's successor at his namesake line, modeled an entire menswear collection on them for spring 2012."
