Marc Jacobs Out of the Dior Picture
While he initially looked like a shoe-in for John Galilano's former job at Christian Dior, word around the fashion circles is that Bernard Arnault isn't too keen on shaking things up over at LVMH.
Other top candidates include Phoebe Philo and Riccardo Tisci; however, both seem keen to stay at Celine and Givenchy, respectively. Alexander Wang, Raf Simons, and Jason Wu are some rumored names being thrown into the ring, but no official word has been released on anyone just yet.
With Jacobs out of the running, the current popular opinion suggests that a post-rehab Galliano is the only one fit to hold the position. After all, both Manolo Blahnik and Franca Sozzani have expressed their desire to see him return, and Jean-Paul Gaultier has also stood behind the controversial former Dior creative director.
Galliano is currently still in rehab.
