Gaultier tells the Independent, "When you see the video [of John Galliano], you can see it is someone teasing him ... John is very talented. He has done some beautiful things for Dior. I think it is completely sad that he doesn't have his own label anymore. I think it's bad. There are some people who say and do terrible things and they are not even punished for it." Gaultier also said said he didn't care for the film The Devil Wears Prada because "Anna Wintour is a lot more monstrous than she is described!" When the reporter asked if he thinks Wintour is a "positive figure," he merely responded, "She is a figure." [Telegraph UK]
