Designer John Galliano appeared on the " Charlie Rose " show Wednesday night.  In his first television interview since he was caught on video in a Paris bar in 2010 making anti-Semitic remarks that prompted his ouster from the storied French fashion house of Christian Dior and from his own label in 2011. Galliano was clean-shaven, wore a conservative-looking sports coat, his hair slicked back into a ponytail, and was soft-spoken, in stark contrast to the Napoleonic-looking poses he once struck at the end of his runway extravaganzas, when he would appear in costume for the adoring crowd.

The dark legend lives. It lives with the remarkably vital ghost of Rudolf Nureyev. Two years have passed since the world's most famous and most flamboyant danseur lost his secret battle with AIDS at the age of 54. Now, the carefully manicured Nureyev image is cracking, after its fashion. At the same time, the Nureyev legend is growing. Nureyev could be no mere mortal. That wasn't his style. Admirers weren't allowed to think of him in such prosaic terms. He insisted on being bigger than life.

Have Dance Shoes, Will Travel: Ballet star Rudolph Nureyev, 53, said Monday he loves to travel and may extend his world tour to Japan, even though some published reports have said his round of performances in the United States and Europe marks his farewell. "I have been touring for 30 years and there is a knack to it. You get accustomed to it. . . . I miss it when it's not there," said Nureyev.

HERE ARE 32 homes with sigh! quality: Sigh!--Rudolph Nureyev's candlelit apartment in Paris with its tapestries and silver. Sigh!--Bette Midler's simple, painterly mansion with its floral-print, slipcovered chairs and porch swing. Sigh!--Bernard Nevill's (he's professor of textiles at the Royal College of Art in London) beautiful, chaotic studio with its casual mounds of flowers, Turkish runners and accumulated furniture--a charismatic place that looks very much like a still-life painting.
