The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Oscar de la Renta Supports John Galliano Comeback, Beyoncé to Perform at Brit Awards, and Jourdan Dunn’s Moving to NYC

John Galliano has a friend in Oscar de la Renta, who has opened the doors of his studio to the designer. De la Renta is not the first member of the fashion elite to show kindness to Mr. Galliano after the desginer’s now-infamous “I love Hitler” rant outside a Parisian café. He was spotted exchanging bisous with Anna Wintour back in July. Even Franca Sozzani‘s come out to support Galliano, saying on record that she thought Dior should rehire the troubled designer. De la Renta is only too happy to have Galliano in his studio, convinced the former Dior creative director is committed to cleaning up his act: “I think John is doing all the right things. Everyone in life deserves a second chance, especially someone as talented as John. I think that life is about forgiving and helping people.…I think John is doing all the right things.” (WWD)


• The 2013 Beyoncé takeover continues, with another high-profile appearance added to her media blitz. The singer is to perform at this year’s Brit Awards on Februay 20th. Ms. Knowles  joins a roster boasting performances by One Direction and Robbie Williams, but for some reason, I get the feeling King Bey’s going to be the main attraction. British readers, will you be tuning in? (Vogue UK)

Target has teamed with celebrity stylist Kate Young on a limited edition range of semiformal dresses. This is the first stylist-designed capsule for the retailer, which Target SVP of apparel and accessories Trish Adams says has proven to be an adventure: “It’s interesting [to work] with someone that may not have formal training. It’s the first time a limited-time collection has been so focused. We always wanted to do a line of semiformal and special occasion dresses. Here’s someone that creates jaw-dropping moments.” The collection will be available in stores April 14th— just in time for prom season. (WWD)
