Following on from Karl Lagerfeld's medal ceremony last week, John Galliano is the latest fashion designer set to receive France's highest distinction - the Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. As ever with hugely talented couturier, our first thoughts were "and what will he WEAR?". Known for his show-stealing outfits at the end of each of his catwalk presentations, we can't even begin to imagine his get-up for an occasion of this magnitude (will he be dressed as an astronaut? Napoleon?). The ceremony will be hosted by French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the Elysée Palace later this month (right before Galliano will be presenting his men's show in Paris), but they certainly made him wait for it - the designer was notified of the honour back in January last year.
Plenty of time to plan an awesome outfit.
