NEW YORK, N.Y. - Fashion designer John Galliano didn't appear at New York Fashion Week, but he made headlines there anyway.

Galliano landed on the front of the New York Post on Wednesday under the headline "Shmuck!" with a photo of the designer wearing a hat and ringlets described as resembling those of a Hasidic Jew.

Galliano was fired from Christian Dior two years ago after an anti-Semitic rant and did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

But Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, leapt to his defence, saying the outfit did not resemble a Hasid and Galliano had been working to make amends. He said the designer simply "dresses eccentric."
