John Galliano’s fashion re-introduction took place Monday morning with the Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal 2015 show, and the fashion world rejoiced. #MargielaMonday marks not only Galliano’s return to the runway, but also the first spotlighted creative director Margiela has candidly appointed in years. In a no-frills, all-white space, Galliano presented a bold couture collection that celebrated the established Margiela aesthetic at the same time that it showcased Galliano’s ability to innovate and lend attention to detail. And everyone was impressed. [Women’s Wear Daily]

We learned in December that Gucci creative director Frida Giannini would be leaving her position at the company at the end of February, after the fall 2015 womenswear collection was shown in Milan. Apparently, though, Giannini left the company last week. Cue: frantic search for a new creative director. Potential replacements include Riccardo Tisci, Joseph Altuzarra, Hedi Slimane, Christopher Kane, Peter Dunas, Christophe Lemaire, and Gucci’s current head accessories designer, Alessandro Michele.

The Golden Globe Awards took place in Los Angeles last night, and as per usual when it comes to red carpet events, the evening’s “winners” aren't all about who takes home trophies. For the most part, Sunday evening's red carpet fashion game was on point, and it was admittedly difficult to choose winners—but alas, we did. And while we were at it, we pinpointed some recurring trends that may or may not persist throughout awards season. [Glam Chic]
