Dior designer John Galliano is in New York City this week to celebrate the reopening of Dior’s flagship store on 57th street. Galliano sat down with WWD to discuss, among other things, the surprise party supermodel Kate Moss threw for him last week, which featured performances by David Bowie, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and Barbra Streisand impersonators.
“So I go outside for a cigarette with Kate, OK? She has this little jumpsuit on with little sequins. She looked gorgeous. Some dirty old man walks by and goes, ‘Oh, you do that really well. You could be a model.’ She goes, ‘F— off! I’m too short!'”
Amid the performances, there was another spectacle:
“There were these kids who were break dancing to Michael who were twins. [Galliano extends an arm to approximate their height — perhaps that of an average eight-year-old.] One’s blonde, one’s brunette. They were break dancing, diving. But there was like a time lapse of something like six seconds. Twins do that apparently. It was the most weird thing to see. It was incredible.”
