Bill Gaytten Opens Up About Galliano’s Departure

Bill Gaytten had quite a lot to deal with in 2011 when John Galliano was fired from his post at Christian Dior and his namesake label. Gaytten, who was second in command at both houses at the time, was left to carry on without Galliano’s trademark flamboyant flair and romantic aesthetic. His first couture collection post-Galliano at Dior was met with scathing reviews. It was clear that the house needed some new leadership to take it into a new era. After Raf Simons was appointed as creative director of Dior, Gaytten had a lighter workload and more time to focus on John Galliano, where he sits at the helm today.

Transitioning into a post-Galliano era, however, wasn’t easy for Gaytten, who told the The New York Times that his life is “a lot better than it was two years ago” when Galliano was first fired. “That was a very difficult year, year and a half. Just didn’t see it coming. With hindsight — surprise, surprise,” he said. “I’m not doing self-pity, because I don’t, but it was a very difficult situation for me. Just to be sort of shoved suddenly — the curtains open and someone pushes you out like a petrified rabbit in the headlights.”

Rumors surrounding Galliano’s return to fashion have been circulating as of late and it seems like the fashion world is ready to welcome the disgraced designer back into the fold. We’re not sure if he would ever make a case to take the reins back at his namesake label, but at the moment, it seems Gaytten is content with executing his vision at Galliano.

Refreshing Resort: Gucci Taps Fresh Faces for Latest Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Fall 2014 campaigns may still be fresh in our minds, but the ads for the Resort 2015 collections are now starting to roll out. Gucci‘s campaign is the first, as the brand released its full Resort campaign via Facebook, and to our amazement, we are impressed! Sticking with photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to lens the images, Gucci switched up the cast this time around by tapping a handful of fresh new faces to showcase its latest collection. The new Gucci girls include Alisa Ahmann, Aneta Pajak, Julia Bergshoeff and Julia Banas, who all pose in a dark lit studio wearing tropical-inspired pieces and clutching luxurious leather goods.

Members of our forums just cannot stop expressing who their favorite is. “Happy for Alisa! She deserves it. Hopefully it is the right remedy for her messed up S/S runway season. The styling on the other hand is not so classy,” commented VERNIQUE.

“Alisa and Julia B are killer in this campaign. Alisa is so magical in print,” shared jacquelineo, impressed with the ads thus far.

“Alisa looks so powerful in Gucci! Julia Bergshoeff is so sexy. Unexpected that Aneta and Julia Banas are good too,” wrote mikose.

HeatherAnne cheered on her favorites: “There’s no stopping Julia Bergshoeff or Ben Allen, they’re going to be around this industry for a long while!”

“This is absolutely gorgeous, even though it’s strange to see a cast of entirely new girls in a Gucci campaign who is usually so loyal to their favorite vets, each girl’s shot works, especially Julia’s,” enthused a satisfied Greenway. (more…)

Kate Moss Flashes a Nipple for Breast Cancer Awareness

By now, we’re used to seeing Kate Moss in various states of undress. After all, she is a model — it’s part of her job. But this time around, Kate is flaunting her goodies for a good cause. According to the Telegraph, the model has been tapped by Stella McCartney to appear in the ads for lingerie she created to benefit breast cancer awareness and The Linda McCartney Centre.

Kate already had a glass molded from her left breast, so she was the perfect pick to help front the campaign for McCartney’s special edition Gemma Relaxing lingerie offering. Each item in the three-piece range is rendered in a hot pink color. For the campaign, Kate poses in a bra, pulling one cup down to expose her nipple, which is obscured by a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon. The line includes the soft cup bra Kate is modeling, a balconette bra (both $80) and lacy panties to match ($40). 

Proceeds from the collection will help The Linda McCartney Centre build a new mammography site, so you know your money will be helping other women — it’s a perfect excuse to shop.

You can find the pieces from the collection here
