Why yes, that was John Galliano working away in a secluded corner of Oscar de la Renta's airy 25th-floor atelier.
Lauded designer de la Renta hosted a small press gathering Wednesday to fete the launch of his new bridal fragrance, Something Blue. The scent is fresh, and the bottle features an adorable wearable silver ring in keeping with the theme of the perfume. The launch was understated and elegant: Perrier-Jouët and tea sandwiches were served.
But we were equally excited to spot Galliano not once but twice, smiling and confident, like he owned the place. Just recently, de la Renta announced that Galliano was in town collaborating with him on his new collection.
For those not following fashion, the disgraced designer was booted from Christian Dior after he went on a drunken tirade, making anti-Semitic remarks.
