#1765 Alber Elbaz is obviously replacing John Galliano at Christian Dior

I love a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy, so for that reason I just couldn’t stop myself from weighing in on the who’s-going-to-be-the-new-designer-at-Christian Dior rumours. Obviously it has to be Alber Elbaz. Why? Because in my extensive research that includes reading such style.com Tweets as: “Not to add to the Dior rumor mill, but people in Paris are asking, why has the Lanvin team been in tears all day?”; and ignoring such Women’s Wear Daily reports as: “Elbaz remains under contract to Lanvin. He’s believed to have equity, and is said to be, for the moment, at least, not interested in leaving.”; not to mention words from the designer’s mouth, as told to Cathy Horyn of the New York Times: “I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying here.”; I’ve discovered that there was a vaguely similar thread running through Elbaz’s Fall 2011 Lanvin collection and Kris Van Assche’s Fall 2011 Dior Homme collection. Namely, both included hats, capes, and the colours black and red. See? It all makes such perfect sense! Elbaz for Dior!

What… my theory isn’t as valid as a tweet sent from backstage at a Katy Perry concert?

    Check out the Cut’s post on David Chiang – ‘I used to have even longer hair last June when I was backstage at Dior, and [Lagerfeld] told me I was “a very beautiful Chinese girl.” I just looked at him and said, “Thank you.”
