Eurovision contestant can't wear John Galliano, Jennifer Garner for Max Mara?
1. Although things have been looking up for John Galliano lately, the former Dior designer has recently hit another hurdle. Eurovision's Israeli contestant Moran Mazor, has been banned by the Israel Broadcasting Authority from wearing a dress designed by Galliano. In a memo sent to Maazor, it said that Galliano's actions "preclude" him "from dressing the Israeli Eurovision representative, at a time when racism and anti-Semitism is rampant in Europe, even if he had apologised." It seems it's going to take a lot more than an apology for some people to forgive. [Fashionista]
2. Word is that Jennifer Garner has landed a new campaign as the face of Max Mara. The actress was reportedly photographed by the Italian fashion house recently, although details are being kept under wraps. There is no doubting Garner's red carpet prowess and mainstream appeal. It makes sense really. [WWD]
3. Crystal Renn has expressed a desire to design a clothing line for women of all sizes. The former plus size model has told Net-a-Porter's The Edit that a big goal for her "is to design a fashion line with body diversity in mind." Hmm, now that would be a first. [Net-a-Porter]
4. R'n'B star Cassie is the new face of Forever 21's Spring Summer 2013 campaign. With plenty of nods to the 90s, Cassie models denim overalls, cropped tops and animal print MC Hammer trousers. Has someone at F21 been raiding the costume archive from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air? [Grazia UK]
5. Since appearing on Made in Chelsea, Chloe Green has been busy launching her new shoe collection and getting busy with J-Lo's ex, Marc Anthony. Despite the 22 year age gap, the Topshop heiress has no problems telling her man what to wear. "Well you get the odd question of 'Do you like what I'm wearing?' and I'm like, 'No not really'. Then he says, 'How would you wear it?'. I'll then say, 'Make it a bit cooler - wear it with some trainers and a T-shirt.' He's then, 'Ok, I'm not sure but if you like it, I like it.'" Er... right.
