Now that the Dior creative director Christian Galliano has been fired for making anti-Semitic remarks, including being caught on video saying "I love Hitler," there are interesting rumors floating about as to who will take his place. The short list of rumored names includes Marc Jacobs.
Meanwhile, recent Oscar winner Natalie Portman, the celebrity face of Dior who appears in ads for Miss Dior Cherie perfume, was quick to condemn Galliano's actions, which were caught on video by Britain's Sun newspaper.
"I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today," she said in a statement to the Asoociated Press. "In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way." She said, "I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful."
