Your morning fashion and beauty report: John Galliano's arrest and suspension by Dior rock fashion industry

February 25, 2011 |  8:43 am

Agalliano -- Just before Paris Fashion Week is due to start, Dior has suspended creative director John Galliano, left, pending an investigation into his arrest Thursday night after an incident in a Parisian bar. Galliano allegedly had been drinking and is accused of hurling anti-Semitic comments during a disagreement with a nearby couple. Police detained the designer briefly. On Friday morning, the fashion industry is all aTwitter. This one calls for multiple links, folks.  [Reuters] [Telegraph] [ElleUK]
