The longtime creative director of Dior has been suspended from the line as of this morning, reported Daily Front Row. It was reported that while at a Parisian restaurant John Galliano was arrested for alleged assault and anti-semitic comments toward a couple. Eye witnesses have told officials that Galliano was under the influence when the incident took place.

One of the most significant themes from New York and ParisFashion Weeks is the gorgeous paradox that comes from femenine silhouettes crossed with neutral palettes. The outcome is an elegant and timeless piece. Because the color helps blend into one’s skin tone, the shape of the figure is emphasized. Preen, $1,325.

HauteLook CEO Adam Berhard. samplesalesites.com

Nordstrom has recently purchased HauteLook, a “members-only luxury flash sale site” based out of LA for $270 million in stock. Approximately $180 was paid during transaction and an additional $90 is pending based on the company’s future performance.

HauteLook CEO Adam Bernhard said he “believes the two companies share a common interest” in quality customer service but believes the “exact synergies are still being worked out.”

HauteLook will still offer members 50 to 75 percent off fashion, beauty and travel brand name goods, but will operate independently by Nordstrom. For more information visit WWD.com.
