The Rise and Fall of Galliano and McQueen Four years ago, the fashion designer John Galliano sabotaged his career. He unleashed a drunken, anti-Semitic rant at a Paris cafe. It was captured on video and went viral. Days later, Galliano was fired as chief designer for Christian Dior. A year before Galliano’s implosion, another fashion prodigy also self-destructed. Alexander McQueen, who turned clothing design into fine art, killed himself. He was just 40 years old. Galliano and McQueen helped open the exclusive world of high fashion to the masses and became celebrities in the process. But ultimately, they couldn’t withstand the pressure. A new book out this week tells the story of these two men, and how their lives were remarkably similar.

Trump says goodbye Paris Accord: What does it mean for U.S. and the planet? President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, the landmark international agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Trump was to renegotiate a new deal, but will that happen?
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
Lucia Micarelli: An Evening with Lucia Micarelli Violinist and actress Lucia Micarelli visits The Treatment to discuss her emotive performances as she prepares for PBS' An Evening with Lucia Micarelli.
How do Trump supporters feel about the Paris Accord? Globally and around the U.S., there are strong opinions whether or not the Paris Climate Accord is a good idea. The American exit is either a horrifying abdication of American leadership or a forceful and long overdue statement about U.S. sovereignty.
