I had honestly hoped and prayed that things would start to get better for John Galliano, the once-praised-but-now-hated, fashion designer...
Of course, the world already knows that Galliano was horribly let go from his post at Christian Dior -last year- due to an incident in Paris, where he allegedly decreed a few, politically incorrect statements about Hitler, the Nazi and Jews; the fiasco was caught on videotape, posted to the Internet and went viral around the world wide web.
Now, to make matters worse, Women's Wear Daily has recently reported that Galliano is being stripped of his esteemed title, Chevalier of the Legion of Honour (which he received in 2010), due to the public outcry of the aforementioned incident.

Other fashionistas that have received the Legion of Honour, include Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, et al.. For more information on this story, please click here.
