What's going on with Balmain designer Christophe Decarnin? When he didn't appear at yesterday's Balmain show, rumors began to circulate that he'd been hospitalized after a drug-related nervous breakdown. Balmain's president said that Decarnin had simply stayed home because he was exhausted from working late, but a spokesperson for the brand said that he “by doctor’s orders needs rest, and that is the only reason he was not present at the show.” [The Daily Beast]
