Report: Alber Elbaz Heading to Dior, Jason Wu to Lanvin

Ever since Galliano was fired from his position as head designer at Christian Dior, the rumour mill has been spinning out of control - who will take over at the prestigious house? tweeted last night the following message which has spread like wildfire today, insinuating that they believe Alber Elbaz will be filling Galliano's shoes at Dior based on what they saw from the Lanvin team at Paris Fashion Week: "Not to add to the Dior rumor mill, but people in Paris are asking, why has the Lanvin team been in tears all day?"

Alber Elbaz

To add fuel to the fire, Jason Wu was seen front row at the Lanvin Autumn/Winter 2011 show, which many are seeing as an indication that he has been chosen to replace Elbaz at Lanvin once he leaves for Christian Dior. WWD reported after the Lanvin show: "The sighting of Jason Wu front row at the Lanvin show on Friday sure sent tongues a-wagging. 'I’m here for my first Lanvin show, Mrs. Wang invited me.'

Jason Wu is referring to Shaw-Lan Wang, who is the current owner of the fashion house. Suspicious? Definitely. Watch this space for confirmation!
