John Galliano Wears Crazy Costumes at His Runway Shows Because He Just Can’t Help Himself

One of the best parts of any Christian Dior or John Galliano show is the moment at the end when Galliano struts out to receive his applause and take a bow. What he wears for those moments is just as, if not more, interesting than the ready-to-wear and haute couture clothes and underpants he shows on his models. He discusses his personal fashions for these moments in The Wall Street Journal:

People always ask me about the clothes I wear on the runway. The attention should be on the collection—not my finale! I get so immersed in the world that I am creating that—like a method actor—I tune with the muse, the story and the collection so much so that I evolve into an homage to the world I have created.

These homages have included characters resembling George Washington, equestrians, and more often than not, pirates. See a recap of Galliano's finale looks from over the past few seasons in the slideshow.
