We're finally getting word of the first John Galliano sighting at Oscar de la Renta's atelier since the designer started his three week residency in New York!
Galliano was spotted at a small press event on Wednesday for the launch of the designer's new bridal fragrance, Something Blue, where he was tucked away into a secluded corner of the room working by himself!
Onlookers said he made two appearances though, and seemed extremely confident.
That’s good because our egos would be a little bruised if our work spaces felt like time-out.
At least he’s got a good attitude about it!

Everyone deserves a second chance, and Oscar de la Renta is willing to give John Galliano his.
After taking a two year hiatus to focus on his addictions, Galliano is taking up a three week residency with de la Renta at his New York City studio.
When asked about his decision to bring in Galliano, Oscar explained:

"To want to be a fashion designer was really the worst thing that could happen to me. I thought it was dumb and conservative […] But my education at home pulled the other way, giving me a taste for beautiful things, an instinct for fashion. I adored that."

Kelly Osbourne had previously mentioned she’d be open to creating her own fashion line.
And it seems the cutie might soon be doing that. Kelly reveals:
“I have a meeting about it [a clothing line] on my birthday which is very exciting. I’m going to design for an already made line and then once I get enough experience and know what I’m doing I’ll do my own independent one.
It really is a long process and I want to do it the right way. It’s not something I’m running into. I don’t want to jump into something and not be able to swim.”
And according to Kels, we might even see her new line within the next year.
We’re already starting to wonder what it’ll look like, but we’re pretty sure it’ll be fierce and glamorous.
Just hopefully not ridiculously overpriced.

Was it written into their contracts that they must go into fashion following their exit from the show!?
Kristin Cavallari is following in Lauren Conrad's shoes almost literally, because she's picked up a gig designing a pair of shoes for Shoe Dazzle.
The former Hills actress announced her new job at the Salt premiere on Monday night:
"I’m designing a shoe for Shoe Dazzle right now, which is like a one time, one deal show which a portion of the proceeds [will] go to my charity 'OneKid OneWorld'. I’m excited about that because I want to have my own shoe line so it’ll be like a good first shoe to get my feet wet with."
At least it's for a good cause!
Would U buy Kristin's shoes???

Who isn't nowadays?
So You Think You Can Dance' Cat Deeley is launching a line of accessories set to launch on QVC later this month.
The new line, which features vintage inspired pieces, came from her love of vintage shopping. Cat explains:
"Most people don't have the time or inclination to go to vintage stores and look through things. Lots of people find it scary - it's time-consuming and it's nice that I do the leg work for them and make it all work. I'm quite good at finding these little hidden treasures. When I'm going off and travelling around the country on the audition tour, I go to all these vintage shops - anywhere from Los Angeles to New York to Memphis to Nashville to wherever. And I find all these amazing vintage designs."
And it seems like that jewelry and accessories may be only the beginning.
The hostess says she wouldn't completely rule out a clothing range. Cat adds:
"Perhaps I might do one. But it would be along a similar vibe -vintage-inspired. Something that's very useful and modern and very fresh. I don't want women to turn around and think vintage isn't for me, that it's old and boring."
We can't wait to see what she came up with!
