Galliano’s gradual rentrée to the fashion world is a fine-tuned process and won’t include splashy public appearances anytime soon. His publicist, Liz Rosenberg, confirmed to the Post that the designer won’t attend this year’s Met Gala, even though his designs will be featured in the corresponding punk-themed exhibit. Her exact words: "One step at a time … and that’s one huge mother fuckin’ staircase." (But so useful for posing next to your very tall date!)
