Most controversial designer: John Galliano

In February, Dior’s former designer John Galliano was found blurting an anti-Semitic rant – which included a boastful “I Love Hitler” segment – while in a drunken stupor in Paris. Fast forward to a few weeks, and the much-loved designer found himself without a job after working with Dior for 14 years. After endless designers were rumored to take Galliano’s spot, the luxury house picked Jil Sander’s Raf Simons for the task.

Model of the Year: Arizona Muse

From scoring her first Vogue Paris cover to starring in major ad campaigns to walking on countless fashion runways (61 to be exact), newcomer Arizona Muse was definitely one to watch for 2011!

The usually mysterious Frank Ocean gave listeners an insight to a brand new track that he has been working on, stating:

” i just listened to this a few times for myself. figured maybe some else needed to hear it. it’s called ‘4 tears’.”

The track is soulful and emotive – classic Frank Ocean.
