Gareth Pugh to Consult for Dior Homme?

>> 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.
