John Galliano Shows Up to Court Wearing No Shirt, Just Jacket
Ex Dior designer/comic book villain John Galliano went on trial Wednesday after being charged with shouting anti-Semitic slurs in a Paris café back in February.

Galliano has expressed his apologies for the incident, but was immediately fired from the French fashion house.

The British designer has been out of the public eye for months, but showed up to a gilded courtroom at the Justice Palace wearing a black polka dot handkerchief, as well as his familiar pencil-thin mustache and long hair. Hey, at least it wasn't a skin-tight white minidress.

The official charge against Galliano is "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation or ethnicity". If convicted, he could face up to six months in prison and $32,175 in fines. And something tells me he wouldn't do well in prison.

A French couple contends that Galliano made the comments to them at a café, and when Galliano was taken by police for questioning, a sobriety test showed he was drunk at the time. After this incident, another woman came forward with similar claims.

And video of the incident, in which Galliano slurs, "I love Hitler", is pretty strong evidence.

Galliano's lawyer is contending that while his comments were obviously "misplaced and hurtful," they are attributed to Galliano's addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs. That probably explains his outfits, too. The verdict is expected at a later date.
