In the immortal words of Heidi Klum: "In fashion, one day you're in, the next day you're out."
Marc Jacobs is out, and Nicolas Ghesquiere is IN as creative director at Louis Vuitton!!!
Okay, it's not official, but so far everything in this story has played out exactly as predicted, and we have a feeling the announcement is being drafted as we type!
Ever since Nicolas parted ways with Balenciaga last year, we've been wondering what path the designer would take next, and apparently he'd rather work for another major brand instead of strike out on his own.
It'll be really exciting to see what he'll bring to the table at Vuitton! Sure, he has really big, really stylish shoes to fill, but with 15 years at the helm of Balenciaga, Nicolas certainly has the knowledge and experience.
And we are DYING to see what his first collection for the famed French brand will look like!
Only 138 days till Paris Fashion Week starts on February 25!
