Quel Scandale! Paris (Fashion Week) Is Burning

Edited by

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about Paris Fashion Week that brings out the crazy in everyone. Lest you forget it was around this time last year that John Galliano went swimming in a pool of anti-Semitic haterade, thus plunging the fashion world into a year-long speculative mission regarding his successorChristophe Decarnin had his breakdown and falling out with Balmain and  Kanye West dropped the biggest bomb of his career – and I’m not talking about 808s & Heartbreak. Not to mention a few months ago during the spring 2012 season that whole fashion calendar war was ignited.

MUSE OF THE WORLD: Gaga Bones Bazaar, Doutzen’s Going Out of This World and a Shotgun Royal Wedding

Edited by

An internal hire is expected to be announced shortly. [WWD]
