PARIS — Will the taint of bigotry cling forever to John Galliano — an albatross around his neck? Or will the incendiary British designer rehabilitate himself and his name over time, only to rise again like some fashion phoenix?
Retailers, headhunters and other experts seem to be rallying for the latter scenario, arguing that Galliano — ousted from Dior last month amidst mounting allegations of racist and anti-Semitic outbursts — has the potential to write himself a new chapter and rebound from the crisis.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
