It seems Anna Wintour has been meeting ex-Dior designer John Galliano on the sly. An Instagram user managed the pap the pair dining in Paris on the day of Raf Simons’ Dior debut.
The alleged sighting occurred at the Paris Ritz restaurant, L’Espadon, on Monday evening. Wintour and friends met the British designer outside the restaurant, before moving inside for dinner. Instagram user Albert Pang, who captured the blurry moment on his iPhone told The Cut he was “100 per cent positive” it was John Galliano.
“[He] arrived alone and took a seat outdoor[s] where I was, and ordered a drink (not sure what drink, [I] couldn’t see it [be]cause I was two tables away). The picture with a few people was someone from the table who knew Galliano, and they said hi,” he said in an e-mail. “Then about 10 or 15 minutes later Anna Wintour came and she seemed very excited, with hurried steps to Galliano. If I remember correctly, they hugged. But I couldn’t hear a thing. Then they moved indoors for dinner.”
Is Galliano set for a comeback with the full support of the Wintournator? We’ll have to wait and see.
