Sarah Burton is in The Running To Replace Galliano At Dior.
According to a source, advisers to LVMH owner Bernard Arnault submitted a list of potential candidates, including: Tom Ford, Hedi Slimane, Olivier Theyskens, Nicholas Ghesquière, Alber Elbaz, Haider Ackermann, Prabal Gurung and Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton.
We believe this is the first time we’ve heard Burton’s name floated. And more interestingly, if Burton dresses Kate Middleton for her April 29th nuptials she’ll be a shoo-in for the gig:
Bernard Arnault is transfixed by royalty, and would be keen to launch Dior alongside the next-generation couple, just as Princess Diana helped catapult the image of the brand in 1995 when she toted a Lady Dior bag and, a year later, donned a midnight-blue, bias-cut Dior gown by Galliano to attend the Costume Institute gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
