We hope they saved their receipts!

John Galliano's highly anticipated workshop at Parsons The New School for Design has been cancelled and it's all his fault!

Apparently Galliano refused to participate in the three-day "Show Me Emotion" master class, which included a "frank conversation" with BFA students about his career, because he didn't want to answer questions about the infamous comments that got him fired from Dior.

On Tuesday, Parsons informed students the workshop's been axed, explaining in a lengthy email:

John Galliano & Grace Coddington Have Their Own Punk-Themed Reunion In New York

John Galliano and Grace Coddington hang out in New York City

John Galliano may not be attending the Met Gala tonight, but he's got the punk theme DOWN!

The designer and Parsons professor hung out with Vogue's Grace Coddington in Manhattan on Sunday, looking as cray as you'd expect in a cable-knit sweater vest, plaid and camouflage shorts, and knit knee socks worn with sandals.

And despite her poufy, flame-red hair, Grace managed to fade into the background in her slouchy black slacks and double-breasted coat.

Although, who wouldn't when standing next to John???

We're definitely sad that the former Dior designer won't be at the Met Ball tonight, since so many of his cutting-edge designs are going to be on display, but apparently that would mean taking one too many steps.

His publicist Liz Rosenberg put it thusly:

"One step at a time, and that’s one huge mother f - - kin’ staircase.”

Well, we're sure John and his peeps know what's best for him!

John Galliano NEVER Agreed To Design For Israeli Eurovision Contestant!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteSad SadJohn Galliano

john galliano says never agreed design dress israeli eurovision contestant

This is getting a little fishy!!!

Remember how that Isreali Eurovision contestant was supposedly banned from wearing a John Galliano dress on the show?

Well, that ban might be hard to enforce because Galliano flat out denies ever agreeing to design a dress!

Last week Moran Mazor told a radio station her stylist, Gili Algabi, reached out to several designers, but John's publicist Liz Rosenberg says there was never any "official correspondence" between her client or the stylist.

Rosenberg said in an email:

Everyone was taken by surprise when John Galliano took up a three week residency with Oscar de la Renta during New York Fashion Week, and it sounds like it wasn't just a one time thing.

During an interview with Women's Wear Daily, the 80 year old was asked if Johnny boy would be back for the S/S 2014 collection, to which ODR cryptically responded:

Oh, Dita, you are exquisite!

Let us worship at your altar!

Dita Von Teese was an awe-inspiring sight at the International Beauty Show at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC on Sunday.

The queen of burlesque showed off her unbelievable waist-to-hip ratio in a gray John Galliano dress with a bow accent on the shoulder and dramatic draping at the front.

Dita styled her elegant look with black leather Fratello Orsini gloves, an Analeena clutch, and Christian Louboutin pumps.

John Galliano Banned From Dressing Israeli Eurovision Contestant! ADL Comes To His Defense!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteSad SadJohn Galliano

john galliano banned from dressing israeli music contestant

It seems like sometimes saying sorry and acting contrite is just not enough.

John Galliano has been working hard to put his anti-Semitic rant behind him, but some aren’t ready to forgive him.

The designer was all set to dress Moran Mazor, a Eurovision contestant from Israel, after her stylist "reached out to several international designers among them John Galliano. Fortunately, he accepted the challenge of designing a dress."

But once the Israel Broadcasting Authority, who sponsors Israel's participation and broadcasts the show, got wind of the deal, they banned her from wearing his designs.

The IBA's Yoav Ginai fired off a memo to Moran's agent, saying:
