Dear John Galliano,
I know I keep writing you to say that I am so eagerly waiting for the return of your crazy. I mean, lately you haven't shown a whole lot of lobster armor, or degas dancers, or gilded jackal-women, or... oh, lordy, if I get started, I'll never stop. It's all incredible. The way you do complete excess is gorgeous, if I even dare say that during what will likely be the most devastating depression America has ever seen. You've reined yourself in a bit lately, and while browsing a slideshow of a couture collection where the models aren't dressed as geisha girls that got attacked by their bed sheets while gardening (and lost) is a little bit of a let-down, you never really cease to amaze me.
