John Galliano To Collaborate With Stephen Fry?

Is John Galliano  really designing stage costumes for Stephen Fry? The designer is rumoured to be creating Fry's wardrobe when he plays Lady Bracknell in a new theatre production of Oscar Wilde's famous comedy,The Importance Of Being Earnest. A spokesperson for Galliano could not be reached for comment.

Fry - who is also directing the play - is said to be "in early talks" with Galliano and Roland Mouret  for one of them to design costumes for his formidable character. Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton  was also suggested to be involved, although a representative from McQueen has already denied the reports.

The actor, presenter and author reportedly told his producers, David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, that he wants the sets and gowns to receive acclaim when the show opens next year. A venue for the production has not been confirmed, but it is likely to take place at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

If speculation is true, this wouldn't be the first time that Galliano has dressed a theatre star - he worked as a dresser for the National Theatre in the early stages of his career, when he helped prepare Judi Dench's stage wardrobe for the same role.
