John Galliano (December, 2010)
Praised as a savior of couture, John Galliano creates lavish, fanciful couture and prêt-a-porter for Christian Dior and his own eponymous line. Herewith his dreams…
My dream mode of transport is a magic carpet.
My dream home would be in Japan, Argentina or Africa – living among Masai.
My dream muse is Betty Page, who was the inspiration for the Christian Dior spring 2011 collection.
My dream closet would be filled with Dior and Galliano.
Right here, right now, this is my dream job - I’m a pirate, an adventurer, an explorer, and a storyteller!
My dream dinner party would include Kate Moss and Charlize Theron.
For my dream meal I would perhaps treat myself with roast beef and Yorkshire pudding – magically calorie-free, of course.
The mobile and ipod are my dream gadgets – but all you really need is a passport or a rich imagination, and there is enough adventure out there to entertain.
My dream concert would include Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson. For a small venue it would be in L Olympia; for a big one the Berey – both in Paris.
My dream holiday would be quite solitude in the Maldives with a great book, or parting with friends in a vibrant city like Buenos Aires.
My dream car would be something very English, like Rolls-Royce Phantom – I don’t drive, so to be driven makes it an even greater luxury.
