Well, she’s the designer on everyone’s lips and now rumour has it Sarah Burton is being tipped to replace the controversial, insanely talented John Galliano at Christian Dior. Galliano was fired early this year for allegedly making anti-Semitic comments.

Burton, the Alexander McQueen designer who is becoming somewhat a celebrity after designing the new Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, is said to be one of the names on LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault’s list of possible successors to Galliano.
