>> Leave it to Fashion Week to turn up a juicy rumor or two. Currently being served up? The future of Gareth Pugh. At his premiere menswear show  in Paris last night, an unexpected front row guest — LVMH heiress Delphine Arnault — caused a lot of chatter . Arnault, who is the second largest shareholder in LVMH after her father Bernard, is not known  for staying out late, much less for a show which started an hour late at 10 pm on a rainy Sunday night.
After the show, which she deemed , "Beautiful, amazing," Delphine went backstage to congratulate Gareth. The designer has recently been talking  about making more wearable pieces, and Arnault's appearance could be more than coincidence. As the Telegraph reports , "The word is out that someone very big wants to harness his talent, because it could be just the spark to reignite a moribund menswear market." Grazia has heard  from several sources that that "very big" someone is LVMH's Dior Homme, who is about to tap Pugh as a consultant.
