kelly cutrone americas next top model judge

Kelly Cutrone is known for her tough love attitude. She's been around the block and then some. She knows what she's talking about, and she's not afraid to leave the sugar coating behind when advising young women.

So even though she's a new judge for America's Next Top Model, she's not going to let that stop her from giving her honest opinion.

When she's asked why ANTM winners don't move on to more successful endeavors

The Fashion Industry Comments On Galliano

fashion-industry-comments-on-galliano-scandal.jpg

John Galliano may be out at Christian Dior, but the fashion house's problems are just beginning.

Dior's fall fashion show is scheduled for this Friday in Paris, but because of the scandal surrounding the ex-creative director there may not be anyone there to watch!

According to reports:

"Many international buyers and press feel uneasy about attending the show, leaving Dior in the double predicament of being without a creative director, and the strong possibility of disappointing sales of a collection which many feel is now tainted by the scandal."

Ouch.

Even though buyers and press feel uneasy, Galliano's colleagues genuinely feel bad for the guy.

Here are what some of them had to say:

Stefano Gabbana via Twitter:
"I'm so sorry for John Galliano!!!"

Roberto Cavalli:
"I don't believe [it]. Because I know John since many years, he's such a wonderful person. I can't believe that he makes some racist [comments] toward somebody, because he's so international . . . I think that somebody wants to try to be bad with him. I think la Maison Dior should make [for] him [a] big red carpet because he helped Maison Dior to be what it is today. I don't want to judge anybody, but I love John and John, I am with you."

Giorgio Armani:
"I'm very very sorry for him. It's obviously a difficult time for him. I am also very sorry that they videotaped him without him knowing."

Inneresting.

What do U think of all the Galliano dramz? Should Dior have fired him? Do U feel sorry for him?

Lindsay To Open Boutique With Dina?

lindsay-to-open-boutique-with-dina.jpg

We’re not sure this is the best idea for Lindsay Lohan right now, or if it’s even true, but reports are circulating that Lilo might soon be opening a boutique with Dina Lohan!

Really? Is this truly the best time to open a shop? Especially when she might be facing some jail time?

As for what they will be selling, turns out it’ll be clothing and jewelry. Hah! A close source reveals:

"Both Dina and Lindsay love the fashion industry and are excited to do this together.

Right now, Lindsay loves being in Venice in her new home and enjoys the walk into town.”

Lindsay and her mom will be looking for a place in downtown Manhatten as soon as her ban to travel has been lifted.

For now she's awaiting her February 25 probation hearing and preparing for a visit from her mom and siblings."

That’s one chatty inside source.

Maybe for the time being Lindsay should continue to focus on getting better. A new business can be stressful.
