Dior just made it official: John Galliano is on his way out. The legendary design house has moved to dismiss its creative director less than a week after allegations first emerged that he had attacked a woman with anti-Semitic slurs at a Paris bar. (A video of a very drunk Galliano looking directly into the camera and stating "I love Hitler" probably didn't help.) In a statement translated by the Wall Street Journal, Dior CEO Sidney Toledano said, "I condemn with the greatest firmness the comments made by John Galliano in total contradiction with the essential values which have always been defended by Christian Dior."
