Christian Dior has suspended creative director John Galliano after his arrest last night in Paris on assault charges, pending investigation. Mr Galliano had allegedly been under the influence of alcohol, and shouted anti-semitic comments at a couple on a Marais cafe.  

Interestingly, given all that has been written about the hoo-ha of brands placing bloggers in their front row and the supposedly retrograde reaction of the established glossy press (yikes! Barbarians at the gate! and all that) this week American Glamour has invited – and imported, on their own budget – five of the “guest bloggers” on their new “Young & Posh Blogger network,” part of their website, to Milan, to see some shows, meet some designers, and otherwise become part of the family. If you can’t beat ‘em, employee them.
