    • Instagram user albertckpang snapped these shots of what looks like Anna Wintour and ousted Dior creative director John Galliano having lunch at a Parisian hotel. They met up right after Wintour watched Raf Simons make his debut as creative director for the brand’s Fall 2012 couture show. While no one has been able to definitively confirm the identity of the two fashion bigwigs, it certainly does look like them, doesn’t it? I wonder what were they chatting about? Does this mean Galliano is making a comeback? What do you think? (albetckpang Instagram)
