In the latest juicy bit on John Galliano’s endeavors, WWD reports that the disgraced designer who spent a month in a residency for Oscar de la Renta is still in talks with de la Renta about a full-time job. They even e-mail each other weekly! Also noteworthy: The summertime speculations of John Galliano’s rebirth as a costume designer have proven to be true. The former head designer of Dior is currently hard at work designing costumes for Stephen Fry’s London production of The Importance of Being Earnest. Perhaps after dipping his toes in the stage world, Galliano will make another full-fledged attempt to return to fashion. After all, Anna Wintour, Suzy Menkes, and Oscar de la Renta, among others, are all rooting for his return.
