John Galliano Tapped by Russian Perfumery Chain L’Etoile: Estranged fashion designer John Galliano is back! Since his firing from Christian Dior in March 2011 following racist and anti-semetic slurs, Galliano has found it difficult to become accepted again (and to find a new job) in the industry. The designer's most recent gig was a temporary residency in Oscar de la Renta's studio leading up to the label's Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Despite speculation that the position would become permanent, Galliano did not ultimately take a position at the design house. Now, Russian perfumery chain L'Etoile has tapped Galliano as a consultant for its beauty projects, with rumors that he has been hired as the company's creative director. L'Etoile is the country's largest fragrance chain with over 750 stores. [WWD]
