SOMETHING DIOR?: As if John Galliano doesn't have enough design projects, might he be dreaming up a wedding dress for Delphine Arnault? The house is mum, but Arnault, who works for Christian Dior's leather goods department and sits on the board of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, is expected to turn to Galliano for her rumored September nuptials to Vallarino Alessandro Gancia. Word has it the ceremony will take place at Chateau d'Yquem, the wine estate owned by her father, LVMH kingpin Bernard Arnault.

BRAVA BRAVO: Less than a year after Burberry opened its first Rome store on Via Condotti, its ceo, Rose Marie Bravo, ventured back to the Italian city this week to host an in-store cocktail party Tuesday to fete the premiere of a play that will raise funds for young immigrants. The company is sponsoring the play, a first-time production by Sophie of Hapsburg called "Scacco al Matto," which is an Italian play on the words meaning checkmate. The psycho-thriller's plot centers on a clinically depressed countess who is tormented by the thought that someone is trying to kill her for her riches. Proceeds from the play, which opens Tuesday at Rome's Teatro Valle, will benefit Foundation Faro. Founded by Susanna Agnelli in 1997, the foundation provides vocational training for young immigrants from places such as war-torn Sudan and Nigeria. "I thought it was the perfect thing for Burberry. It's a really good cause to help these young people find a place in life," Bravo said.
