The prominent Democrat wore an outfit designed by a man who once claimed he loved Hitler.
Katy Perry is known for her spunky pop songs and brightly colored costumes on stage, but Monday night her dress sent a completely different message at the Met Gala as she wore a dress by John Galliano, a known anti-Semite.
Perry graced the steps of the Met in a custom John Galliano for Maison Margiela monstrosity. She was covered in red tulle and chiffon, including red boots, a long red train, and a red tulle veil that extended beyond the length of her train.
At first glance, the ensemble looked like an explosion of red, but a closer look at the designer shows that Perry is actually wearing a badge of hatred. Designer John Galliano is known for 3 things: his work with Givenchy, his work with Dior, and his anti-Semitic outbursts.
Just before Paris Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2011-12, Galliano was suspended from Dior for insulting a couple in a bar and was quoted saying, “f**ugly Jewish b**.”
In a video of the incident obtained by The Sun (UK), Galliano is seen saying, “I love Hitler,” and, “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f**king gassed.”
Galliano in 2013 wore a Hasidic-looking outfit to Oscar de la Renta’s show during New York’s fashion week, which drew a considerable amount of backlash given his past remarks.
It is very surprising that Perry would choose to wear the avant-garde piece from such a hateful designer after she spent much of the past year campaigning with Hillary Clinton on a message of love and inclusion.
