In easily the most bizarre news this week (and it's only Wednesday), WWD is reporting that John Galliano is to be the new creative director of Russian perfumery L'Etoile. Per Russian press reports, the ex-Dior designer would be working on a private label for the company and would start on May 22. After his residency at Oscar de la Renta, Galliano parted ways with the house earlier this year, but the comeback to his comeback could be in the offing. The veracity of this report remains to be seen, but at least going by an announcement posted on L'Etoile's website: "John is Back!"
