Fab Flash: John Galliano Is a No-Show at SCAD's Annual Fashion Show

Fab Flash: John Galliano Is a No-Show at SCAD's Annual Fashion Show

Much to everyone's disappointment, John Galliano abruptly pulled out of attending the Savannah College of Art and Design's annual fashion show just hours from the event.

The touted designer was set to receive the prestigious André Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Talley himself. Talley, editor at large for Vogue, commented that it took him two years to secure Galliano for the event due to his busy schedule stating, "I'm devastated that he's not here." The reason Galliano didn't attend was that he fell ill.

Students kept an optimistic attitude even after the news and were ecstatic about the other famous attendees present, including Miss J. Alexander, America's Next Top Model judge, who kept them amused with Tyra Banks impersonations. The show must go on, right?

From what I hear SCAD's guests of honor are paid a lot of money to just show up, grab an award and nothing else. They don't meet the students or hand out awards or give internships. ALT is paid a TON of money to get these guests. Yawn!

The word here in Savannah is that it was something to do with drugs... Not sure if I believe it, but all gossip has a base somewhere, right?

If ALT was presenting me with an award and I was on my death bed, I would still have the hospital wheel me there to accept it! LOL
