Another casualty is Natalie Portman who managed to make a statement despite being very pregnant and busy winning an Oscar. She claimed to be proud of her Jewish heritage (as I am of mine), but one has to ask 'How proud?' since her birth name is Herschgel. not very, really. obviously.

"On Thursday night at the posh fashion bar La Perle in Paris ... the Dior head designer might have had a couple of glasses more than he should have. In fact, the designer was pretty drunk but rather in a jolly mood than in an aggressive one.”
Our witnesses tell us that the couple who sat next to him at the bar didn’t recognise the celebrity designer and started to insult him, mistaking him for a bum when he tried to strike up a conversation with them (Galliano’s personal style could be at fault here).
“On his joyful “cheers everybody!” the woman and her boyfriend replied
‘You’re ugly, you’re disgusting, move away from here!’” as our eyewitnesses tell us.
Galliano didn’t react to this statement and raised his glass with other bar guests.
He then turned around to respond to the lady, saying:
“You’re ugly and your fucking bag is ugly too.”
“The boyfriend of the women then got up from his chair and aggressively charged it to threaten the designer. Galliano’s bodyguard tried to quiet the situation, as did the staff from La Perle, but there was nothing more to do; Galliano and the couple exchanged further insults until the couple called the police while Galliano calmed down and smoked a cigarette.”
The end of the story, our eyewitness tells us, was that the police just talked to the designer while his bodyguard was on the phone with his lawyer and Galliano conceded to go with them to the police headquarters to give his version of the story, since the couple wanted to press charges. “No big police arrest took place. As for the anti-Semitic statements, Galliano did call the man who threatened him with a chair “Asian”, which is indeed a racist statement.”
All in all, another dodgy fashionable night in the heart of Paris!
What do we learn from this?
Bad style can get you into legal trouble, and no matter how drunk,
a designer can never see past an ugly bag.
