After months of speculating and hinting heavily that designer Marc Jacobs would be taking the helm at Dior, the rumor mill says his previously inevitable appointment to the head of the French fashion house is looking a lot less likely.
Marc Jacobs was so elated after his inventive presentation for Louis Vuitton yesterday that he didn’t even have time to mention what everyone in fashion wants to know: is he leaving Vuitton for Dior?
This week Kate Middleton‘s $400,000 wedding dress went on display, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his plans for Macy’s, and Harper Beckham made her Twitter (and Facebook!) debut. Also, Valentino had some things to say about Christian Louboutin and Summer’s Eve proved it really is the worst.
Clearly one major luxury fashion house has learned not to mess with Christian Louboutin. Christian Dior, which already has its own problems to deal with, said Wednesday that in contrast to reports that would suggest otherwise, it has no plans to make or sell shoes featuring Louboutin’s trademark red soles next season.
A disturbing 1963 interview with Christian Dior‘s fascist niece Françoise Dior has surfaced, and now the internet is abuzz with news of the fashion house’s alleged Nazi ties. Let’s set the record straight, people.

Couture season is upon us, people! And what a glorious season it is, chock full of the most beautiful, artful and downright lustful sartorial creations of the year.

He may have his detractors, but when it comes to fashion, Kanye West gets it. Like, he really, really gets it. The man tweets about Comme des Garcons and Lanvin.

In case you haven’t noticed the flurry of couture photos inundating the internet, Paris’ Couture Fashion Week started on Sunday. And though we have many, many wonderful thoughts about John Galliano‘s F/W 2011 collection for Dior Haute Couture, our first one involved Jared Leto, his presence, and his bleach blonde faux-ish hawk.
It’s couture time in Paris, and kicking things off -– in a big way -– was John Galliano. Dior’s Fall 2011 couture collection is one for the records as nods to Mother Nature resulted in exquisite and undeniably imaginative takes on the flower.
They say you can’t know where you’re going until you realize where you’ve been. With that in mind, we’re taking a glance back. The past week has been a roller coaster of fashion news and events — and luckily, we were there to catch the good, the bad (like Dov Charney‘s PR mess), and the ugly.

From the summery straw hats at Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta to the the touches of 1950s Americana at Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior, the resort collections were ladylike, fun and evocative of a life by the sea in. Albeit a very, very wealthy one.
Sex and the City fans everywhere have been itching for whatever details they can get their manicured hands on before the second installment of the movie hits theaters next week. On Wednesday, to curb the appetites of some, stylist and SATC costume designer Patricia Field invited a small group of editors to her studio to talk fashion and Carrie.
Emma Roberts, who sat down with WWD to discuss her evolving personal style, can spit names of fashion’s greatest as though they’re already on the tip of her tongue. So it’s no surprise that her next mission, in addition to continuing her budding acting career, may be a design deal.
Fur has infiltrated the collections of almost every major designer this Pre Fall and Fall 2010 season; whether you choose to dress in Chanel, Dior, Carolina or Yves, you have the potential to look like a full blown bear; an haut de gamme designer bear, that is.
